    The Lost World of the Torah

    Law as Covenant and Wisdom in Ancient Context

    The Lost World Series

    by John H. Walton and J. Harvey Walton

    To modern eyes, what we call the biblical law, or Torah, seems either odd beyond comprehension (not eating lobster) or positively reprehensible (executing children). Using a consistent methodology to look at the Torah through the lens of the ancient Near East, Walton and Walton offer a restorative understanding that will have dramatic effects in interpreting the text and in discerning the significance of the Torah for today.
