What reading level is Moral Transitions in Israel Between 1200 And 700 Bc book?
To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:

(a) The principle of blood- revenge has ever been a potent factor among heathen Semites. The original significance of the custom is not now discoverable. In 2 S. 21 : 1 ff. It would appear as if the putting of the murderer to death was originally regarded as a sacrifice by which the anger of the tribal god was appeased. The original absence of an ethical view-point is evident from the simple fact that no moral distinction is made between murder and unintentional manslaughter; even in Dt. 4: 41 ...ff. (a probable addition by "P") and Num. 35: 22 ff. The right of blood-revenge is still ideally recognized, although care is taken to make this right ineffective by providing an asylum for the manslayer in one of the "Cities of Refuge". Jahwism was thus able to give a milder form to this deeply rooted custom though not to abolish it entirely. Moreover, the growing necessity of a stable society put a check on indiscriminate blood-revenge.
20. (b) That the Hebrews as a race did not possess the genius for organization is undeniable.
