Imperative to reaf the Old Testament. Cover parallels with neighbouring cultures, differences and the setting in which the OT was written. Together with Waltons Ancient Near Eastern Thought opens up the OT world and brings the meaning into focus.

Highly recommended.

Whether you are a seasoned scholar or just getting your feet wet in biblical theology this is an excellent book that helps readers understand a commonly misunderstood topic; the relationship between biblical Israel and it environment on a literary and conceptual level. Highly recommended!
