Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

John Walton surveys the cultural context of the ancient Near East, bringing insight to the interpretation of specific Old Testament passages. This new edition has been thoroughly updated and revised throughout.

Anyone seeking a better understanding of how the Hebrew Bible achieved its singular vision of the divine and forged a language that still speaks to many today should welcome this second edition of John Walton's book. It delivers succinct presentations of major literary achievements among neighboring cultures even as it clarifies the many ways Israel shaped individual meanings and teachings from or against them.
--Jack M. Sasson, Vanderbilt University (emeritus)

This is an amazing book. It takes the reader on a tour of the world of the Bible in a way that makes ancient texts come alive.

--Karel van der Toorn, University of Amsterdam
