This up-to-date revision of a classic work draws on the latest archaeological and linguistic research to fill in the historical realities behind the great stories of the Bible.

This account of the historical context for the Hebrew Bible explores the diverse origins of such stories as the creation and the flood in the cultures of the ancient Near East. The authors show the striking parallels in the foundational stories told in the Egyptian, Persian, Greek, and Hebrew cultures of the time.

About the Author: Cyrus R. Gordon is professor emeritus of Mediterranean studies at Brandeis University.

Gary A. Rendsburg is professor of Near Eastern studies at Cornell University.
