Much of the Old Testament turns out atypical to up to date readers. Alternatively, as we start to remember how ancient people viewed the world, the Old Testament becomes more clearly a book that stands within its ancient context as it also speaks against it. John Walton provides here a thoughtful introduction to the conceptual world of the ancient Near East. Walton surveys the literature of the ancient Near East and introduces the reader to a number of beliefs about God, religion, and the world. In helpful sidebars, he provides examples of how such studies can bring insight to the translation of specific Old Testament passages. Students and pastors who need to deepen their figuring out of the Old Testament will find this a helpful and instructive study.
