Editorial Reviews

“It is an impressive and extremely important book. My only regret is that someone didn’t write these things long ago. Halpern shows himself to be a master of literature, history, Semitic linguistics, ancient Near Eastern texts, and archaeology. No one in his generation controls all of these tools of the trade as Halpern does.”

—Richard Elliott Friedman, University of California, San Diego
