From the Back Cover: Archaeological investigations of the past 150 years have yielded much evidence on the ancient Near Eastern world of the Bible. Such evidence is fascinating, but its significance is often difficult to ascertain. Mesopotamia and the Bible brings together an international group of esteemed scholars who explore the points of connection between the Bible and its ancient Near Eastern context, specifically upper Mesopotamia and surrounding areas. Each of these scholars seeks to integrate the disciplines of Assyriology and biblical studies, with full respect for the methodologies, contributions, and limitations of each. The result is a fascinating look at ancient Mesopotamia that will be appreciated by students, scholars, and all those interested in the world of the Bible.
