The Oxford History of the Biblical World

Edited by Michael D. Coogan

For more than a century, archeologists have been unearthing the tombs, temples, texts, and artifacts of the ancient Near East and the Mediterranean world. Using new approaches, contemporary scholars have begun to synthesize this material with the biblical traditions. The Oxford History of the Biblical World incorporates the best of this scholarship, and in chronologically ordered chapters presents the reader with an integrated study of the history, art, architecture, languages, literatures, and religion of biblical Israel, placing early Judaism and Christianity in their larger cultural contexts.
