“This exceedingly important Duke University dissertation incorporates cross-cultural data in order to reconstruct the social and cultural picture of ancient Israel as reflected in Exod. 20:24–23:19. Marshall develops a methodology that interrelates economic, socio-political, and legal systems and that demonstrates the connection between law and society. … This dissertation should be standard reading for anyone who is interested in the exciting possibilities for social and cultural reconstruction provided by attention to economic interests in the Hebrew Bible and in a methodology that allows researchers to move beyond the stalemate Marshall observes in past traditional study of biblical law.”
— Naomi Steinberg, Religious Studies Review
