Yoram, why did you write The Philosophy of Hebrew Scripture? Hebrew Scripture is an intensely personal subject for me. In some ways, I feel a very deep sympathy for biblical figures like Jeremiah and Ezekiel. These are people who saw the destruction of their nation with their own eyes-something that we can hardly even imagine. Hazony focuses this exposition on the contribution of the Hebrew Bible to the exploration and understanding of philosophy and natural law. He typically starts each argument by refuting particular stereotypes about the Hebrew Bible that obstruct its study as a work of philosophy.
Though Hazony’s book benefits from his extensive and rigorous work in political theory, he does not posi- tion this volume within the history of the encounter between Hebrew scripture and Greek philosophy. This absence constitutes a significant loss for the book, in my estimation. Sustained engagement with this history would have not only positioned his work within this rich and well-regarded tradition but also enabled the nonexpert to discern the unique contribution he makes to the history of this discourse.

But, Hazony is not merely arguing that Yoram Hazony's The Philosophy of Hebrew Scripture offers a fascinating and refreshing approach to the Hebrew Bible. Hazony argues that Hebrew scripture is frequently mischaracterized and misread due to the fact that it is too often received as simply a work of revelation rather than a work of reason. One of the main purposes of this book is to make the case for the Hebrew Scriptures as a work of philosophy, although it's not entirely clear what that's supposed to mean (or even if Hazony is clear on it).

Yoram Hazony, an Israeli political philosopher and founder of the Shalem Center, wants to create a paradigm shift in how we view and understand the Bible. Never one to shy away from ambitious goals, Hazony gives us his newest work, The Philosophy of Hebrew Scripture: An Introduction, a book that attempts to undo generations of misguided thinking as to the general nature and purpose of the Bible. Essentially, Hazony contends that we think of ancient books in two crude ways: either as books of philosophy or books of revelation.
