ROSSI, Luiz Alexandre S.  y  DAS NEVES, Natalino. Joel and the Hope in a Universal and Liberating God before the Ambiguity of Monoteism. Theol. Xave. [online]. 2017, vol.67, n.184, pp.461-479. ISSN 0120-3649.

The article aims to compare the results of Israel’s main political-reli- gious reforms in the name of monotheism with the message of Joel. It describes the reforms of Hezekiah and Josiah, and also the ethnic reform of Ezra and Nehemiah. Later, these reforms are compared with Joel’s universalist and liberating message, stressing on the pericopes of Joel 3,1-5 and 4,4-8. Thus, this is mainly a bibliographical research. The result of this research shows that the institution of monotheism was ambiguous and it oscillated between oppression and humanization. While Ezra and Nehemiah’s monarchist reform served to political and domination purposes, Joel’s message contributed to more inclusive and liberating actions.
