London and New York: Sheffield Academic Press, 2002. First Edition. Softcover. Octavo. 282pp + series list. From the publisher: "John Day's magnum opus considers in detail the relationship between Yahweh and the various gods and goddesses of Canaan, including the leading gods El and Baal, the great goddesses (Asherah, Astarte and Anat), astral deities (Sun, Moon and Lucifer), and underworld deities (Mot, Resheph, Molech and the Rephaim). Day assesses both what Yahwism assimilated from these deities and what it came to reject. More generally he discusses the impact of Canaanite polytheism on ancient Israel and how monotheism was eventually achieved." Bump to upper corner, otherwise appears unread, in near Fine condition.
