Knowledge, Control and Sex: Studies in Biblical Thought, Culture and Worldview
Knowledge, Control and Sex: Studies in Biblical Thought, Culture and Worldview$90by Meir Malul

The distinct terminology of “knowledge,” “control,” and “sex” as used in Biblical Hebrew are all conceptually related. In this new volume, Dr. Meir Malul seeks to explain how these words are related and why these terms overlap semantically in the Hebrew Bible. Through this masterful study, we gain a better understanding of these ideas and Semitic thought behind them.

The author is Professor of Biblical Studies at the University of Haifa, Israel.
