Reviews - What do customers think about Israelite Religions: An Archaeological and Biblical Survey?

Informative  Jan 31, 2008
I am a "minimalist" in analyzing the archaeology and Near Eastern references to the Bible, and Hess probably would fall into a centrist-to-maximalist" position. This book, nevertheless, is a cornu copiae of contemporary information which is presented in a logical and will-referenced order. When the author says there are six points to a position, he CLEARLY numbers them, quite unlike many other authors who seemingly forget that they promised a specific number of items. He is one of the few to connect the archaeological discoveries at Emar with Biblical notions. He is generally not "preachy" but occasionaly lapses into a sort of "believer" mentality. His easy writing ability makes the book immensely readable, even for regular folks. Well worth the purchase. I bet it would be fun to be a student in one of his seminars!
