GOD'S FAVORITES: Judaism, Christianity, and the Myth of Divine Chosenness
Explains the temporally layered and allusive storytelling of biblical texts and describes the world of the ancient Near East from which it emerged, laying bare the power struggles and persecutions made sacred by claims of chosenness. Coogan demystifies religious texts, both in their original contexts and in their afterlives, and demands that our actions be based on clear moral thinking.
