The sages, priests and prophets of ancient Israel were directly responsible for what we now call the Old Testament. Blenkinsopp looks at the character and development of these roles and how they functioned in their particular time and place. Based on sociological insights deriving from role theory and audience expectations, the book demonstrates how these intellectual leaders represented their own traditions while responding to the political and professional pressures of their unique situations.

By Joseph Blenkinsopp. This contribution to the growing socio-historical study of leadership roles in Israel investigates three social roles (sage, priest and prophet). Blenkinsopp is sympathetic with Whybray's study of wisdom but disagrees with his conclusion that there was no institutional vehicle or professional class that kept or developed wisdom traditions. His goal is to find the themes in the traditions of the sages that give continuity to their world view.

In this first volume of the Library of Ancient Israel series, Joseph Blenkinsopp investigates three forms of biblical Israel's intellectual and religious leadership: the sage, the priest, and the prophet. The people who occupied these roles were directly responsible for what appears in the Old Testament text. Blenkinsopp looks at the development of these roles and how they functioned in their particular time and place. This investigation will lead to a keener understanding of the literature of the Old Testament and the society in which it evolved.

Volumes in the Library of Ancient Israel draw on multiple disciplines--such as archaeology, anthropology, sociology, linguistics, and literary criticism--to illuminate the everyday realities and social subtleties these ancient cultures experienced. This series employs sophisticated methods resulting in original contributions that depict the reality of the people behind the Hebrew Bible and interprets these insights for a wide variety of readers.

This scholar's elucidation of these three roles in Hebrew tadition is a thorough analysis of biblical texts in regards to the three roles. Each title has a full section devoted to his understanding of what their functions were and he points out where there are problemmatic passages or unclear facets of their respective duties or responsibilities. Their cultural roles and how they developed over time is also covered very well.

In this book, Joseph Blenkinsopp, Professor Emeritus in the Theology Department at the University of Notre Dame, attempts to examine the intellectual leadership in Israel as exercised by three groups of people – sages, priests and prophets. Each group is given its own section, and the available information is looked at from various sources.

Now, where do I start with this book? I must say that I found it to be completely useless. The book was written for an academic audience, and it shows an obscurantism, an impenetrability to the non-academic reader, that I found breathtaking. The author repeatedly makes statements such as “we assume...” (p.119) and “most scholars would agree...” (p.166). Who are “we” and who are these scholars? It gives the books a feeling of being presented ex cathedra.

No, I picked up this book, hoping to understand the roles of, and the interaction between the various intellectual leaders of Ancient Israel, and I finished the book knowing no more about the subject than when I started. If you are a casual, non-academic reader, interested in Ancient Israel, then I would highly recommend that you do NOT waste your time on this turgid resource.
