Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This collection of Middle Eastern texts, which are analogs to parts of the Old Testament, is comprehensive, arranged in order according to the canonical text that each in some way parallels, and supplemented by notes that point out specific points in common and identify where the Middle Eastern text was found. This volume is an important and convenient supplement to the study of Hebrew scriptures which puts those scriptures in context and enables the reader to discover what is and what is not distinctive in Hebrew scripture. Essential.
