Interdisciplinary studies dealing with various aspects of the Hebrew Bible in relation to their literary, cultural, and historical contexts, especially the context of ancient Mesopotamia.

Reviews

"The conclusions are reached seriously and carefully. They throw light on major motifs of the Hebrew Bible, especially upon Israel's ritual. Two important articles research religious attitudes toward sickness and disease, topics seldom treated in biblical studies." - The Bible Today

"Scholars will find three or four of the articles to be of enduring value. . . . Perhaps the most valuable. . . contribution in the book is made by Marilyn Katz in "Problems of Sacrifice in Ancient Cultures.". . . . She demonstrates fluency in the secondary literature and insight into ancient cultures. This article should become a standard for future studies in this area." - Hebrew Studies
