I started a reply but something went wrong. If I duplicate, please overlook.
I'm glad you've read some of Kuhn. He's difficult but most rewarding! My book takes three deep authors--Higgins, Massey and Kuhn -- and then, with the addition of my own theologizing, make them intelligible to literate
searching folk today. The response has been tremendous to date.
Re. the Chosen people etc. Kuhn, rightly notes that the terms Israelites refers to those who are spiritually advanced and not in any way to a race of people. Truth is: we are all chosen people; all land is the "holy land" if you become aware of the divine within and without at that spot.
