"Useful indexes of subjects, biblical references, and authors complete this valuable volume. The proceedings of this seminar demonstrate that the comparison of biblical and Mesopotamian canons of literature continues to be a fruitful enterprise. It also provides additional testimony to the valuable contribution by W. W. Hallo to biblical as well as cuneiform studies." -- The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
"A. Wendell Bowes makes a valuable contribution regarding divine kingship in 'The Basilomorphic Conception of Deity in Israel and Mesopotamia'. . . . the comparative approach suggests avenues of discussion and opens areas of interdisciplinary dialogue that genuinely deserve widespread attention." -- Journal of the American Oriental Society
