Book Reviews - The Oxford History of the Biblical World by Michael David Coogan

UK Kirkus Review » 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.
