Penchansky's Twilight of the Gods is the first accessible book that shows how to interpret the difficult texts (those depicting other gods, and those claiming Yahweh is the only God) within the context of this new understanding of Israelite religion, where polytheism and monotheism existed simultaneously and with great conflict.
