Considering Christianity and Islam but focusing primarily on Judaism, the authors explore the concept, nature, and meaning of idolatry that emerges in the Hebrew Bible. Ranging from the Talmud to Maimonides, Marx to Nietzsche to G.E. Moore, this brilliant account is especially timely in these days of implacable religious difference.
