Item description for The Context of Scripture: Canonical Compositions, Monumental Inscriptions and Archival Documents from the Biblical World, 3 Vol Set by William W. Hallo, K. Lawson Younger, Howard Lindsay, Russel Crouse, Harald Psaier, Gregory Volk, Open University & B. Teissier...

"The Context of Scripture" presents the multifaceted world of ancient writing that forms the colourful background to the literature of the Hebrew Bible. Designed as a reference work for all engaged in the study of the Bible and the ancient Near East, and involving approximately 90 leading scholars, it provides reliable access to a broad, balanced and representative collection of ancient Near Eastern texts that have some bearing on the interpretation of the Bible. Translations of recently discovered texts are included, alongside new translations of better-known texts. The three-volume work features full cross-referencing to comparable Bible passages and bibliographical annotations with judicious commentary.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Context of Scripture: Canonical Compositions, Monumental Inscriptions and Archival Documents from the Biblical World, 3 Vol Set?

Context of scripture (3 books)  Jan 11, 2009
It was a present for my dad, so I just cast an eye over it...
But what I saw seems really interesting. Especially the 1st one. A lot of myths who help you to understand better the culture of this time... And have a new look on the Bible.
 
New Ancient Near East  Jul 29, 2001
This 3-book series is an extensive update of the classic Pritchard ANET (ancient near-eastern texts). Though some of the texts are shortened from Pritchard's volume, the new texts, number of texts, and more up to date translations and notes more than make this book worthwhile... if you can afford it :-) Otherwise, the 2 Pritchard paperbacks are quite reasonable.
 
Outstanding, it is on level with Prichards ANE Texts  Sep 4, 2000
It is Outstanding, it is on level with Prichards' ANE Texts -- though there is some repeatition of material. This Volume is an interesting read, diffentantly not an one nighter :-) A four day weekend should do it -- Though you will hate taking sleep breaks.
