The issue of land and its law of inheritance is not only a crucial concern in the Hebrew Bible but also in our society today. The book analyses this issue by a careful examination of biblical assessment of inheritance and ancient west Asian inheritance law along with inheritance rights of ancient Israel and Israelite women against the backdrop of Biblical scholarship.
