       God in Translation: Deities in Cross-Cultural Discourse in the Biblical World offers a substantial, extraordinarily broad survey of ancient attitudes toward deities, from the Late Bronze Age through ancient Israel and into the New Testament.

Looking closely at relevant biblical texts and at their cultural contexts, Mark S. Smith demonstrates that the biblical attitude toward deities of other cultures is not uniformly negative, as is commonly supposed.

He traces the historical development of Israel's 'one-god worldview,' linking it to the rise of the surrounding Mesopotamian empires. Smith's study also produces evidence undermining a common modern assumption among historians of religion - that polytheism is tolerant while monotheism is prone to intolerance and violence.
