    DescriptionThis is a text-only paperback edition of The Oxford History of the Biblical World. a comprehensive survey of the world from which the Bible emerged. Chronologically ordered, it is an authoritative synthesis written by leading scholars and incorporating the latest archeological discoveries and current methodologies. Chapters present a readable and integrated study of the history, art, architecture, languages, literature, and religion of biblical Israel and early Judaism and Christianity in their larger cultural context. For the paperback edition the maps and tables will remain intact. However, Coogan selects an eight-page black and white insert from the original art program. The art insert compiles the most visually compelling and historical important items that are illustrative of the text.

    Review quote
    this work is one of solid scholarship. It is informative and very suitable for student use and for the general reader. James Barr, Times Literary Supplement This is a significant contribution to the field, and will be very helpful to students of biblical studies, and for others who seek an up-to-date and comprehensive "history of the biblical world". Joseph Sobb, Journal of Religious History
    Review text
    In the tradition of Oxford Histories, this well-illustrated and authoritative volume brings together a series of expert scholars to discuss key aspects of a topic. This is an American production and all bar one of the 13 contributors teach in the United States. Here they provide personal but learned and reliable guides to the history, art, architecture, languages and literatures of the Holy Land in the centuries surrounding the birth of Christ. Collectively they evoke that world vividly and make accessible the latest research into the life and religion of early Judaism and Christianity, providing the cultural context for the most important of all our books: the Bible.
