Getting a fix on the social context of the Hebrew Bible is imperative for anyone reconstructing either the "story" of the text or the "history" behind the text. Resources in this area often prove overspecialized and arcane, and can require highly sophisticated skills in cultural anthropology or Semitic languages just to read the table of contents. Social World of Ancient Israel, 1250-587 BCE, offers those interested in learning about the biblical world a more user-friendly framework for viewing the broader picture; at the same time it relies upon the latest methodologies of cultural anthropology and biblical analysis in its presentation. Painting a picture in broad but precise strokes, the authors portray the landscape of ancient Israel in new and exciting colors that expert and student alike will appreciate.

The Sumerians, the pragmatic and gifted people who preceded the Semites in the land first known as Sumer and later as Babylonia, created what was probably the first high civilization in the history of man, spanning the fifth to the second millenniums B.C. This book is an unparalleled compendium of what is known about them.

Professor Kramer communicates his enthusiasm for his subject as he outlines the history of the Sumerian civilization and describes their cities, religion, literature, education, scientific achievements, social structure, and psychology. Finally, he considers the legacy of Sumer to the ancient and modern world.

"There are few scholars in the world qualified to write such a book, and certainly Kramer is one of them. . . . One of the most valuable features of this book is the quantity of texts and fragments which are published for the first time in a form available to the general reader. For the layman the book provides a readable and up-to-date introduction to a most fascinating culture. For the specialist it presents a synthesis with which he may not agree but from which he will nonetheless derive stimulation."-American Journal of Archaeology

"An uncontested authority on the civilization of Sumer, Professor Kramer writes with grace and urbanity."-Library Journal

The Tabernacle dominates fifty chapters in the Old Testament, while all of creation requires only two. Yet attaining an understanding of the design and significance of God's first house among His people gets scant attention in most churches today.

A proper understanding of the Tabernacle provides a graphic understanding of God's redemptive program. It clearly pictures sinful man, holy God, and the incredible price required to bring the two together. A grasp of the Tabernacle's sacrifices, services, and priesthood is prerequisite to a proper understanding of more than half the book of Hebrews, and countless other New Testament passages.

While numerous books have been written on the Tabernacle, most focus on its services, virtually omitting the priesthood and the various sacrifices. Newer Tabernacle books are often sketchy in their content, overly fanciful in their typology, and include exaggerated anti-types of Christ that the text never intended.

David M. Levy provides a resource equally helpful for those with little Bible knowledge and those with many years of personal Bible study, promising to challenge the reader with the significance of the Tabernacle.
