The Context of Scripture (3 vols.): Canonical Compositions, Monumental Inscriptions and Archival Documents from the Biblical World
Edited by William W. Hallo & K. Lawson Younger

The Context of Scripture compiles and makes easily accessible a significant collection of ancient writings with a view towards the parallels and relationships to the literature of the Hebrew Bible. Designed as a thorough and durable reference work, and involving sixty-three eminent scholars, it provides reliable access to a broad, balanced, and representative collection of ancient Near Eastern texts that relate to the interpretation of the Bible. Translations of recently discovered texts and new translations of better-known texts are included. The substantial three-volume work, with its specially designed page layout and large format, features cross-references to comparable Bible passages and new, up-to-date bibliographical annotations with judicious commentary. Its many distinct advantages over other collections will ensure the place of The Context of Scripture as a standard reference work for the 21st century. more...
