Editorial Reviews

"The book arrived and I am enjoying it immensely. It is one of the better resources on the background of the Old Testament and I'm especially impressed by the parade of authors. If I have occasion (I hope) to teach Old Testament Survey, this will definitely be one of my texts." -- Professor Harry Hight, Virginia Highlands Community College
