Reviews

'The information is presented in clear, jargon-free prose ... the end result is a pleasure to read, as well as thought provoking.' Minerva '... highly welcomed by biblical scholars and archaeologists ... it covers an impressive wide range ... the biblical scholar cannot but be grateful to the authors for providing such a well-written overview of the cultural realm bordering the biblical world. Several state-of-the-art photographs, drawings, maps and charts round off this beautifully produced volume whose affordable price will ensure its widespread and well-deserved distribution.'
