This excellent book is the peak of more than a quarter century of investigation of the effect of Canaanite religion and folklore on antiquated Israel and the Old Testament. It is John Day’s masterpiece in which he puts forward the entirety of his fundamental contentions and ends regarding the matter. The work considers in detail the connection among Yahweh and the different divine beings and goddesses of Canaan, including the main divine beings El and Baal, the incredible goddesses (Asherah, Astarte and Anat), astral gods (Sun, Moon and Lucifer), and black market gods (Mot, Resheph, Molech and the Rephaim). Day evaluates both what Yahwism absorbed from these divinities and what it came to dismiss. All the more by and large he examines the effect of Canaanite polytheism on antiquated Israel and how monotheism was in the long run accomplished.
