Reviews - What do our customers think?
Slaying the Dragon  May 19, 2000
This book discusses many theories for the origin of torah stories. However, I found that the books' hypotheses differ widely from the most accepted scholarly accounts. I am not sure that I believed all of the proposals that the author puts forth. If you are interested in far reaching alternatives to tradiational scholarship, then this book is for you. If you wish to review a more classical account of biblical origins try Cyrus Gorden's "The Ancient Near East."
 
Batto is genius  May 10, 2000
I found "Slaying the Dragon" to be enlightening, and very informative. Batto's style of writing clearly presents the ancient near-eastern myths in a easy to understand fashion. His book is a must for any student of Hebrew scripture, and a key to understanding the origins of the Old Testament.
