Product description

Dr. Gallagher brings together both Biblical and Assyrian sources on Sennacherib's 710 campaign against Judah, Philistia and Phoenicia. Part of the Assyrian materials are new, which enables the author not only to give valuable and fresh insights into the event itself, but also to offer new, carefully supported interpretations of the relevant Isaiah oracles, and of both the Assyrian, and Biblical narratives of Sennacherib's campaign.
