The object of this study is the ideological role of Aram according to their representation in Genesis through 2 Kings. The rare historical sources of this era indicate the kingdom of Aram-Damascus caused Israel and Judah a lot of trouble. However, this book maintains that the functions and image of Aram in the Bible are more often positive than not. The author is an ordained minister of the Church of Sweden.
