“This very handy introduction takes a conceptual approach to biblical law, organizing this subject in terms of its ancient legal sources, social institutions, judicial procedure, crime and punishment, property and contracts, personal rights and status, and family relationships from betrothal to inheritance. Because of its thematic arrangement, this presentation speaks to the selective reader who seeks specific information and also to the comprehensive student who seeks a broad understanding of the ancient Hebrew legal system. Long out of print, Hebrew Law in Biblical Times (1964) now appears in an improved, second edition. While retaining the original character of Falk's style and observations, this book has been edited to serve the modern reader and researcher. Falk’s 1977 addenda have also been included, along with a comprehensive bibliography of his lifetime publications.”
