What is included with this book?


David Daube (1909-1999) was a world renowned biblical law scholar. He was a fellow at All Souls College at Oxford and emeritus professor of law at both Oxford and University of California, Berkeley. Throughout his life and continuing today, scholars have hailed his important research on Roman law, biblical law, Hebraic Law, and ethics. Now, for the first time, the first ten of his twenty Gifford Lectures, delivered in 1962 and 1964, are available to the public in The Deed and the Doer in the Bible. The overall theme of the lectures is law and wisdom in the Bible. Daube's wide-ranging deliberations reveal how complicated and profound the biblical text is. His lectures are aimed at professionals in the fields of biblical criticism, biblical history, ethics, and the history of law with respect to its roots in Old Testament traditions.
