Double standards in Isaiah : re-evaluating prophetic ethics and divine justice by Andrew Davies( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Double Standards in Isaiah examines from a reader-orientated perspective the ethical teaching of the largest and most important of the prophetic books, and addresses the most crucial ethical issue in biblical studies: how can Yahweh justly demand such high standards of conduct for his people when he fails to live by them himself? The author considers the role of this dilemma throughout Isaiah, concluding that the 'double standards' in operation are, for Isaiah, the inevitable by-product of the prophet's vision of Yahweh's exalted status and moral superiority. This provocative book offers a unique and creative approach to the difficulty of representing the character and conduct of God, and will essential reading for students of Isaiah and anyone with an interest in the many ethical problems of the Hebrew Bible."--BOOK JACKET
