The book is accessible to non-experts and a judicious examination of the terms justice and righteousness , broaden the field of inquiry from books that focus on the law to include natural law. Its discussion of the similar approaches to social justice between Israel and her neighbours is significant. --Timothy J. Stone, Reviews in Religion and Theology, volume 20, Issue 1, 2013
"...Williamson's short book has a particular prescience as he offers coordinates in his final remarks for critically reading Israelite natural law traditions alongside the more contemporary language of human rights..." --Richard P Whaite, Theological book review, Vol. 24, No 2, 2012.
'...its accessibility, clarity, and short size enable a reader to acquire a "sense" of ethics in the OT and scholarship on the topic with relative ease. This is not an easy task, so this makes the book quite valuable...[...] For those looking for a short introduction to ethics in the OT and the field, He Has Shown You What is Good is a very helpful resource. For evangelical educators training students for ministry, you could have your students read this book, identify a point of interest, and then pursue that topic further in the growing field of OT ethics...' --Andrew T. Abernethy, Trinity Journal, Spring 2013
[He Has Shown You What is Good] will prove liberating to others who desire a critical focus on the biblical text that remains sympathetic to its theological visions for justice in our world. --Joseph Ryan Kelly, Journal for the Evangelical Study of the Old Testament, vol 2.1, June 2013
