Most widely held works by Hillel I Millgram
The invention of monotheist ethics by Hillel I Millgram( )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, Volume I of II, presents a comprehensive analysis of the Biblical Book of Samuel. Usually taken as a socio-political history of ancient Israel during a century of change, this book contends that, at a deeper level, Samuel is a profound appraisal of the appeal and limitations of power
Four biblical heroines and the case for female authorship : an analysis of the women of Ruth, Esther, and Genesis 38 by Hillel I Millgram( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work examines the lives of Naomi, Ruth, Tamar and Esther. Each woman is depicted without a dominant male companion and featured in the Bible's more secular texts. The author evaluates each character's role as a female protagonist, and demonstrates how each story represents an innovative view of religion and a revisionist evaluation of women's roles"--Provided by publisher

The Elijah enigma : the Prophet, King Ahab, and the Rebirth of Monotheism in the Book of Kings by Hillel I Millgram( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite a sense of failure, Elijah's struggle against the paganizing regime of King Ahab and queen, Jezebel, managed to save monotheism from eclipse, and in so doing alter the course of human history. This work further proposes that the tale presented by the Bible is more than an account of an ancient battle between two historic figures"--
The Joseph paradox : a radical reading of Genesis 37-50 by Hillel I Millgram( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An accessible interpretation of the Joseph story, this book is a reader-friendly treatment of one of the most popular tales in the Bible. Instead of its usual reading as an Horatio Alger success story, the text proposes that we are presented with a cautionary tale of high achievement and the pursuit of success"--Provided by publisher

Judges and saviors, Deborah and Samson : reflections of a world in chaos by Hillel I Millgram( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a book about a book: it is an in-depth yet reader friendly analysis of the Book of Judges, one of the most dramatic books of the Bible. Against the commonly-held view that this remarkable work is no more than a collection of hero tales stemming from Israel's earliest days in its land--its "Heroic Age," so to speak--this study makes the case that the Book of Judges is a unified composition with a single focused message: that it is the values held by a people and not its politics that determine its fate. Further, Judges contends that there is a direct connection between the kind of values people internalize and the level of violence that racks their society, both inflicted from without and generated from within. And not least, that the presence of violence is a symptom that a society has abandoned the moral values of monotheism for the Machiavellian politics of a pagan worldview that worships power as the ultimate reality. The larger-than-life heroes and heroines--Ehud and Jael, Deborah and Gideon, Jephthah and Samson--who people the pages of Judges serve by their example to illustrate the way this thesis works out in the world."--
