Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is a unique and important commentary. It is a milestone in the collection and comparative interpretation of ancient Near Eastern texts, pictures, and other archaeological materials as well as geographical, historical, and cultural information as they relate to the Old Testament. There is nothing else like it available today. The interpretations provided are usually cogent and convincing. Where there is legitimate debate, the explanations generally show due caution. There will always be disagreements between scholars on such matters, but the many comparative and archaeological resources assembled in these volumes make it a veritable gold mine for those who desire to take the ancient context of the Lord’s work and word seriously in their study, teaching, and preaching of Holy Scripture.” -- Richard E. Averbeck

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent commentary providing cutural and contemporary literature background to the Old Testament.
It really helps to understand the world that the Hebrews lived in. I highly recommend it anyone who is wanting to know more than just an explanation of the scriptures. It is like studying the American Civil War by knowing what Europe was doing at the time, especially England. I think you can understand why the Hebrews acted as they did when you know more about the life and pressures around them. I find it very interesting to know that much of the Bible is written in the same format as other literature of the same time, and then read that other literature. Details of everyday life make the people of the Bible come to life even more. The research is tremendous!
