About this product
- DescriptionThis text examines the meaning and nature of idolatry, revealing much about the motheistic tradition that defines itself against this sin . The authors consider Christianity and Islam but focus primarily on Judaism. They explore competing claims about the concept of idolatry that emerges in the Hebrew Bible as a whorling after false gods . The authors show how this debate over idolatry as practice or error has taken place and has, in turn, shaped the course of Western thought.
