Item Description...
Overview
With beginning students in mind, the editors have compiled this collection of primary source documents to serve as a window into the Ancient Near East.

Publishers Description
Essential to a proper understanding of the Old Testament is a knowledge of the political, historical, and theological environment of the ancient Near East. While there is an abundance of material explaining this environment, primary source texts are often unavailable or inaccessible to the beginning Old Testament student.
This volume in the Encountering Biblical Studies series fills that void. "Readings from the Ancient Near East" takes the student through a wide variety of primary source texts from the ancient Near East that illuminate every book of the Old Testament. It is the companion volume to "Encountering the Old Testament," coauthored by Bill Arnold and Bryan Beyer.
The editors have compiled this volume with the beginning Old Testament student in mind. The selections are intended to move a learner with little or no knowledge of the ancient Near East to a basic understanding of its significant texts and authors.
Texts spanning more than two thousand years include Sumerian creation accounts, epic literature from Mesopotamia, cultic ritual texts from Egypt, and prophetic references from Syria. "Readings from the Ancient Near East" will surely become a standard text for professors, students, pastors, Sunday school teachers, and serious lay readers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good Primary Source Material  Apr 27, 2008
This book is good for doing research in Ancient Near Eastern relgions and culture. Not much is given in terms of connection with biblical material, but it's not meant to be. It's a collection of very diverse primary sources that put the Tanakh (Old Testament) into its greater context - Ancient Near Eastern culture. I would recommend it for anyone doing research in that area. Its not as bulky, robust, and expensive as some other source collections, but it still offers a nice array of materials for a good price.
 
For mythological buffs!  Jan 24, 2008
Readings... is a collection of ancient writings derived from the Babylonians, Egyptians, Assyrians, etc. that all tell of the mythological beginnings of the earth, mankind, and ancient history. The entire book contains these writings with some photos/lithOgraphs of their sources. Although it was required reading for my Christian Bible course, I found it totally un-Christian. If you are looking for truth or fact, I do not recommend it. However, if you are interested in what ancient tribes, peoples, fancied and wrote about, then you would find it noteworthy.
 
Good but boring  Nov 5, 2006
This book is kinda boring, i wish there was some sort of way that the ane texts would have some sort of commentary and if it has some more connection with the bibical writings, a correlation between the two would be more benefical to the biblical reader.
