12902JHS - M. L. Miller, "Nehemiah 5: A Response to Philippe Guillaume" and a dozen of new reviews
- Sep 30, 2010Dear all,
I am glad to announce the recent publication of the following article and of
a dozen of new reviews in the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures
Journal of Hebrew Scriptures - Volume 10: Article 13 (2010)
Marvin Lloyd Miller, Nehemiah 5: A Response to Philippe Guillaume
This a response to Philippe Guillaumes recent article (Nehemiah 5: No
Economic Crisis, Journal of Hebrew Scriptures 10 , article 8). With
Guillaume, I hold the position that the crisis was episodic rather than
structural, temporary rather than systemic. We differ, however, on which
sociological model best illuminates the text and therefore, we reach
different conclusions about the socio-economic circumstances of the time.
