How the Bible Became a Book: The Textualization of Ancient Israel, William M. Schniedewind
1 How the Bible Became a Book: The Textualization of Ancient Israel

William M. Schniedewind

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2004, 0-521-82946-1 / 9780521829465, First Edition, Hard Cover, Brand New, Brand New, 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
For the past two-hundred years Biblical scholars have usually assumed that the Hebrew Bible was mostly written and edited in the Persian and Hellenistic periods. Recent archaeological evidence and insights from linguistic anthropology, however, point to the earlier era of the late-Iron Age (eighth-though-sixth centuries BCE) as the formative period for the writing of biblical literature. How the Bible Became a Book combines recent archaeological discoveries in the Middle East with insights culled from the history of writing to address how the Bible first came to be written down and then became sacred Scripture. It provides rich insight into why these texts came to have authority as Scripture and explores why Ancient Israel, an oral culture, began to write literature. It describes an emerging literate society in ancient Israel that challenges the assertion that literacy first arose in Greece during the fifth century BCE. Contents 1. How the Bible became a book; 2. The Numinous power of writing; 3. Writing and the state; 4. Writing in the Early Israelite state; 5. Hezekiah and the spread of writing; 6. Josiah and the text revolution; 7.
