As I pick up this view I am, at least initially, only intending to read parts of it for specific academic use, so any initial reaction will be based on segmented reading, however, if curiosity compels me to read the book in its entirety, I'll be sure to make note of this being a more thorough review.

The first few chapters of the book are background information, both on the geographic characteristics of the region and the role of the Hebrew prophet. While, without a doubt, this is the basic content needed for anybody who intends to study any of the prophets, the presentation on geography is lacking the most basic tools including maps. Pure description of terrain isn't helpful when the goal is to establish a memorable framework for readers to draw upon later.
