Israel and Babylon

The Babylonian Influence on Israelite Religion

by Hermann Gunkel and K.C. Hanson (ed.)

ISBN: 9780227173671

“Besides correcting the syntactical and stylistic deficiencies of the original English translation, Hanson’s main concern is to promote the enduring relevance of Gunkel’s scholarship. Given the accessibility of his translation, the helpful organization of references, and the concise contextualization in his foreword, he has certainly met this goal. […] We must thank Hanson for bringing back one of the great figures of OT scholarship, and we must thank Gunkel for reminding us that comparative study which exchanges the virtues of balance, honesty, and literary competence for the vice of public renown is detrimental for the state of scholarship and the life of the Church.”

Samuel Hildebrandt, University of Edinburgh, in The Expository Times,
Vol 125, No 6, March 2014
