Nathan MacDonald examines the term ‘monotheism’ and its appropriateness as a category for analysing the Old Testament. He traces the use of ‘monotheism’ since its coinage in 1660 and argues that its use in Old Testament scholarship frequently reflects a narrowed, intellectualistic conception of religion.
