2 Coogan, Michael David The Oxford History of the Biblical World
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.
