Book Description

What is the bond between a cultural icon and the surrounding culture? Using Joshua as an exemplar, this book investigates the presentation of his character in the Bible and explores the continuities and discontinuities in his reception among classical interpreters, Jewish, Christian and Samaritan. The study of a hero shared by several cultures sheds light on the elements that bind these cultures together as well as those that keep them apart.
