Reviews - What do customers think about Education in Ancient Israel: Across the Deadening Silence (The Anchor Yale Bible Reference Library)?
Solid work of scholarship Sep 17, 2009
A well-conceived book that demonstrates the author's first-class scholarship. There are many interesting insights. The author reminds the reader that much is "conjectural" as sufficient evidence is lacking for hard and fast conclusions (p. 4ff). One concern is over the author's misrepresentation of the events at Southern Seminary (p. 142-43).
Thorough and enlightening Apr 19, 2009
I read this book as part of a masters research project on the development of early Christian scripture and worship practices. The author does an outstanding job presenting the development of literacy and education in the ancient Near East. I found the book not only a valuable resource, but Dr. Crenshaw's writing style also makes it a pleasure to read. This volume has found a permanent place in my library and I am sure it will serve as a reference for future projects.
