While idolatry remains a continual threat to God’s people, Israel faced a strong temptation because of the surrounding Canaanites and their religious practices. One such example that occurs frequently in the Old Testament is the worship of the Canaanite goddess Asherah, whose poles were set up even in the temple during the last days of the kingdom. Dr. Walter A. Maier III joins us to discuss idolatry and Canaanite religion in particular and what we can learn from Israel’s example today.
Hosts: Rev. Willie Grills and Rev. Zelwyn Heide
