Editorial Reviews

ADRIS Newsletter
... as exhaustive and comprehensive as is humanly possible. This is easily the work to consult...
Biblical Archaeologist
...indispensable...
Choice
Both undergraduate and research collections.
Religious Studies Review
...the two volumes belong in every major research library and will be a valuable investment for any scholar engaged in serious research on Jerusalem.
Revue Biblique
...tremendous debt of gratitude we owe to Purvis for opening windows we did not know existed.
Library Journal
Developed from reading lists for a Boston University undergraduate course, this is a comprehensive but not exhaustive bibliography of the city of Jerusalem from ancient times to the present. Biblical, Jewish, Christian, Moslem, and modern periods are amply covered in entries whose format includes author, title, publisher, and copyright, but no annotations. Entries are primarily in English, although a few other Western languages and translations from the Hebrew are also used. An excellent bibliography that should be purchased by academic and seminary libraries but is too specialized for public library collections. Robert A. Silver, Shaker Heights P.L., Ohio
