Oxford University Press 1998 0195087070 / 9780195087079 1st Printing Hardcover VG+/VG+; Light shelf wear, tight and clean, nice copy  
Chronologically arranged, integrated study of the history, art, architectur e, languages, literature and religions of biblical Israel and early Judaism and Christianity in their larger culural contexts ; 9" - 11" ; 643 pp; Here, in one impressively illustrated volume, leading scholars offer compelling glimpses into the biblical world, the world in which prophets, poets, sages, and historians created one of our most important texts-- the Bible.

For more than a century, archeologist s have been unearthing the tombs, temples, texts, and artifacts of the ancient Near East and the Mediterranean world. Using new approaches, contemporary scholars have begun to synthesize this material with the biblical traditions. The Oxford History of the Biblical World incorporates the best of this scholarship, and in chronologically ordered chapters presents the reader with a readable and integrated study of the history, art, architecture, languages, literatures, and religion of biblical Israel and early Judaism and Christianity in their larger cultural contexts. The authors also examine such issues as the roles of women, the tensions between urban and rural settings, royal and kinship social structures, and official and popular religions of the region. Readers will find that 200 photographs, line drawings, and maps as well as an insert containing 25 color photographs vividly illustrate the history discussed.

Understanding the biblical world is a vital part of understanding the Bible. Broad, authoritative, and visually engaging, The Oxford History of the Biblical World will illuminate for any reader the ancient world from which the Bible emerged.

Sacred Geography:   A Tale of Murder and Archaeology in the Holy Land , Fox, Edward
4 Fox, Edward Sacred Geography: A Tale of Murder and Archaeology in the Holy Land
Metropolitan Books 2001 0805054936 / 9780805054934 1st Edition; 1st Printing Hardcover VG+/VG+; Like new  

A true murder mystery that unfolds in the astonishing world of biblical archaeology, a field rife with skulduggery and intrigue.

Biblical archaeology has for centuries been subject to the manipulations of adventurers, generals, and statesmen, all seeking to further their own aims. Now more than ever, digging into the land of the Bible is a weapon as two rival nations seek to prove their claims to its treasures.

The most recent casualty in this bloody tug-of-war is Albert Glock, a prominent American archaeologist, shot dead in the West Bank in 1992, who had devoted his life to helping Palestinian archaeologists find evidence of their historic roots. Edward Fox investigates the puzzle of Glock's murder and its background in the explosive cultural politics of archaeology in the Holy Land. Fox reveals the strange subdiscipline of biblical archaeology -- a field rich in obscure mystics, greedy opportunists, and religious charlatans. He pursues the various suspects in Glock's death -- Islamic zealots, Jewish extremists, and rival archaeologists -- only to find himself caught in an expanding labyrinth of deceit. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 254 pp
