Product description

"This book, by the doyen of British Old Testament scholars, is the product of profound and extensive study, not only of the Bible, but of the religions and cultures of the Ancient Near East. Professor Hooke was the first English scholar to draw attention to the links between the early religion of the Hebrews and the ritual and mythology of the Babylonians and Assyrians, in a book which earned him an international reputation. In recent years, while still taking an active part in Old Testament studies, to which he has made many notable contributions, he has also devoted much time and thought to an examination of the documents of the New Testament, taking into account all the recent developments in historical, textual, and theological studies. His wide learning and his distinctive and original approach, informed throughout by a deep religious experience, have borne fruit in a challenging and profoundly moving book which traces the course of Divine Revelation from the earliest time to its crown and culmination in Christ, with special reference to the symbols and images in which that Revelation has been expressed."

Book in fair condition - there is wear to the dust jacket, page foxing and an inscription on the first page.
