This book is an excellent resource for pastors, theologians, and apologists. It provides exactly what Mr. Walton chose to deliver. He compares other Ancient Near East texts with similar Biblical passages, comparing and contrasting them. He provides specific sourcing information and introduces each ANE text by topic. This is useful because some may claim, "Passage X from the Bible is clearly a copy of ANE text A." This is the book you want to verify those claims.I would like to have seen a little...
An astonishingly good read setting Israel, her faith and her Scriptures into the ANE context. Such a helpful book to read and to help put the OT into context.
Helpful, not altogether interesting for me, but a good resource for my shelf.
