"This monograph is a study of one of the major images of God in the Old Testament and its background in the mythology of Syria-Palestine. The conception of God as warrior played a fundamental role in the religious and military experience of Israel, one that has been recognized but not fully treated or analyzed in its various dimensions. One can go only so far in describing the history of Israel, or its religion, or the theology of the Old Testament without encountering the wars of Yahweh. In prose and poetry, early and late materials alike, the view that Yahweh fought for or against his people stands forth prominently. The centrality of that conviction and its historical, cultic, literary and theological ramifications can hardly be overestimated..The focus of this work is upon divine warfare in ancient Israel, its mythological background, and its relationship to the wars of Israel. That is, I have sought to look at the mythological-theological conceptions which were associated with Israel's early wars, her reflections on them, and the divine involvement in them."--from the introduction
