The Cambridge ancient history by John Boardman( Book )

25 editions published between 1923 and 1989 in English and held by 1,367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume III of The Cambridge Ancient History was first published in 1925 in one volume. The new edition has expanded to such an extent, owing to the immense amount of new information now available, that it has had to be divided into three parts. Volume III Part 1 opens with a survey of the Balkans north of Greece in the Prehistoric period. This is the first time such a survey has been published of this area which besides its intrinsic interest is important for its influence on the cultures of the Aegean and Anatolia. The rest of the book is devoted to the tenth to the eighth centuries B.C. In Greece and the Aegean the main theme is the gradual regeneration from the Dark Age and the emergence of a society in which can be seen the beginnings of the city-state. During the same period in Western Asia and the Middle East the Kingdoms of Assyria and Babylonia rise to power, the Urartians appear, and in Palestine the kingdoms of Israel and Judah flourish. In Egypt the country's fortunes revive briefly under Shoshenq I. The final chapter in this part deals with the languages of Greece and the Balkans and with the invention and spread of alphabetic writing

An introduction to the Bible by Stanley Arthur Cook( Book )

34 editions published between 1945 and 2002 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book endeavors to provide a very general introduction to the Bible including the Apocrypha. A brief outline of the English Bible is followed by a digression on other sacred lore, indicating some of the topics prominent in other great historical religions and illustrating the background upon which the Bible is now placed, a short account of the growth of the Bible, the canon, text and interpretation, leads to a rapid survey of the books of the Bible and the Apocrypha. A fuller chapter deals with the phraseology, and more particularly with the main ideas which serve to interrelate the canonical, apocryphal and apocalyptic writings. A chapter on Jerusalem and Mt. Zion strengthens this interrelation. Two concluding chapters offer remarks on our approach to the Bible, urging that with all our advances in scientific and other knowledge the Bible remains, as before, the Word of God. - Preface
