Item Description...
Who was Hammurapi, and what role did his famous "law code" serve in ancient Babylonian society? Who was the mysterious Merodach-baladan, and why did the appearance of his emissaries in Jerusalem so upset Isaiah? Who was Nebuchadnezzar II, and why did he tear down the Solomonic temple and drag the people of God into exile? In short, who were the Babylonians? This engaging and informative introduction to the best of current scholarship on the Babylonians and their role in biblical history answers these and other significant questions. The Babylonians were important not only because of their many historical contacts with ancient Israel but because they and their predecessors, the Sumerians, established the philosophical and social infrastructure for most of Western Asia for nearly two millennia. Beginning and advanced students as well as biblical scholars and interested nonspecialists will read this introduction to the history and culture of the Babylonians with interest and profit.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Clear, Concise and Thorough!  Oct 8, 2008
This book was written for a very general audience. For scholars, it might serve as good quick reference. For average Bible students, it offers about as much information as they need. Bill T. Arnold is one of the most respected Old Testament scholars in the business. Any thing he writes is worth reading. His style of writing is very clear and to the point. He packs a lot of information into this 104 page book on ancient Babylonia. He discusses all the relevant geography, religion and and history without academic jargon. The title of a book carries a certain promise that the author needs to fulfill, which he does. When you get done reading this, you will be able to answer the question: Who Were The Babylonians?
