Features include ; Over 2000 photographs, drawings, maps, diagrams and charts provide a visual feast that breathes fresh life into the text. ; Passage-by-passage commentary presents archaeological findings, historical explanations, geographic insights, notes on manners and customs, and more. ; Analysis into the literature of the ancient Near East will open your eyes to new depths of understanding both familiar and unfamiliar passages. ; Written by an international team of 30 specialists, all top scholars in background studies.
