Abstract

will provide a more direct consideration of his premise to the broader ritual systems, thus affording even further benefit form his scholarly acumen. Blood Ritual in the Hebrew Bible: Meaning and Power makes a solid contribution to the intellectual brevity and sophistication of blood ritual studies for both Hebrew Bible scholars and religious anthropologists in their study of ritual practice (all biblical words are transliterated for the non-Hebraist). Gilders provides a careful and thorough analysis of both the priestly and non-priestly tradents, giving capable attention to the Greek and Samaritan variations where applicable, the important Rabbinical trajectories, and both medieval (particularly Ibn Ezra) and modern interpreters. This exceptional work provides a serious possibility regarding the latent function of blood manipulation in the socio-cultic world of the biblical text, to which scholars will have to give legitimate consideration. As such, Gilders' work stands as a sound scholarly investment. Casey A. Toews Trinity Western University Ancient Near Eastern Literature and the Hebrew Scriptures about the Fatherhood of God, by David R. Tasker. New York: Peter Lang, 2004. 230 pp. $65.95.
