Philosophy and Practice in Writing a History of Ancient Israel

Details

This book addresses debate between 'minimalist' historians who find the Biblical text to be a relatively recent Persian/Hellenistic construction and the 'non-minimalists', who take the Biblical record at face value. Moore examines the issues from a philosophical standpoint, addresses the possibility of objective historical inquiry and appeals to a 'qualified correspondent truth' as a guiding principle for further investigation.
