Dates the writing of biblical literature to the late-Iron Age, challenging previous theories of literacy.
1. How the Bible became a book; 2. The numinous power of writing; 3. Writing and the state; 4. Writing in the early Israelite State; 5. Hezekiah and the spread of writing; 6. Josiah and the text revolution; 7. How the Torah became a text; 8. Writing in exile; 9. Scripture in the shadow of the temple; 10. Epilogue; 11. Further reading.
Combines recent archaeological discoveries in the Middle East with insights culled from the history of writing to address how the Bible first came to be written down and then became sacred Scripture. The author relies on anthropologists and archaeologists to date the writing of biblical literature to the late-Iron Age, well before the Persian and Hellenistic periods as was previously assumed, thus challenging the assertion that widespread literacy first arose in Greece during the fifth century BCE.
