BOOK SYNOPSIS

Meynet makes available in English and Spanish his series on Biblical rhetoric, a unique method of textual interpretation applied to important themes in the Biblical and Semitic world. He posits that the concept of freedom in the Hebrew Bible is the guiding core of all the socio-political distinctions within Israel’s religious experience and history. This original study leads us through the experience of the people of Israel in the Exodus. It guides us into a new reading of the Law in the two narrative sections of the Decalogue, seeing it as an expression of the search for the authentic meaning of human freedom. He also introduces Israel’s Psalms as hymns of freedom
