Moberly reads the text with careful attention to both its large conceptions and its detailed philology, offering an interpretation that is at once theological and existential, designed ultimately for lively and faithful performance.

Contemporary Old Testament theologians book

It is written in a way that is accessible to students wanting an introduction, but there is plenty here for the further education of even senior Old Testament theologians. It has been celebrated by the Jews ever since as a great day of deliverance and is known as the Feast of Purim.

Moberly's signature style is patient, humane, and wise, combining loving attention to representative biblical texts rather than general 'themes' with probing reflection on what it might mean for twenty-first-century Christians to enter imaginatively into Israel's heritage.

Chapman, Duke University"Anyone who appreciates Walter Moberly's writing will appreciate this new work: urbane, focused, careful, learned, nuanced, fearless, independent, rejoicing to look closely at a few trees in the conviction that they will throw light on the nature of the forest, and conservative in the best possible way.

Amos does not see justice as an abstract principle but rather as a life force. The size is approximately the same; it consists of two chambers, the Holy Place and Most Holy Place; and it clearly accommodated cultic features like those described in the Bible.
