Ancient News: From Eisenbrauns, an Imprint of PSU Press

in this issue

general news

Welcome to the November issue of Ancient News, the month of meetings, with ASOR, ETS, and AAR/SBL all starting this week. Dr. Jennifer Singletary, our new acquisitions editor, along with Patrick and Heather will be at ASOR; I’ll be joining them for AAR/SBL (booth 638), which starts on Saturday. You can see the books we’ll be bringing with us to ASOR here; the AAR/SBL list is here. Watch your inbox for more details, including the coupon code to receive the discount in case you can’t attend in person.

A few titles didn’t make it through the printer in time for the conferences; we’ll feature those next month. But, I would like to draw your attention to a title that barely made it, Phyllis Bird’s Harlot or Holy Woman. We are offering it at 50% off if you use coupon code BIRD19 through December 31st. Of course, if you are attending the conferences, you can purchase or order it at 50% off as well.

The latest 10-day sale features selected Festschriften at 40–50% off. I’ve listed some of the titles below, but take time to visit the sale page to see them all. Sale ends November 30th (so I guess it is a 16-day sale!).

Speaking of sales, we added a couple of new features to the website this month: Ancient Ancient News, an archive of past issues of Ancient News, for those of you who can’t get enough, and a summary sales page so you won't miss any of our specials. Bookmark it!

We received a few reviews of Eisenbrauns books this month. I’ve included an excerpt from two of them below. Use coupon code NR18 for 30% off. If you happen across a review of an Eisenbrauns book, please let me know about it via email!

Rounding out this month’s Ancient News is a pair of PSU Press books new in paperback that you might find interesting. Use coupon code NR18 to receive 30% off. You might also find the current two-week sale of interest: Religion Around titles at 30–50% off. The sale ends November 30th.

The Southern Levant under Assyrian Domination

The Southern Levant under Assyrian Domination

“With regard to Assyrian involvement in the southern Levant, this volume provides both broad overviews of the data as well as in-depth studies on particular topics. Although each essay has its own merits, a strength of the book is the diversity of approaches employed in analyzing the various data in order to reconstruct Assyrian domination.”—Anthony P. SooHoo, Pontifical Biblical Institute, in Orientalia 88.1 (2019): 132–39.

Jehoiachin in Biblical Theology

“In summary, this is a worthy attempt at a constructive biblical theology focused on the figure and theme of Jehoiachin. Patton has certainly convinced me that the figure of Jehoiachin in the biblical text is more significant than often thought. Furthermore, by paying close attention to references and allusions to Jehoiachin, Patton offers a unique look into the theme of exile in biblical literature . . . this remains a significant work and a unique one in its focus on the figure of Jehoiachin. Readers interested in a biblical theology of exile or in seeing how a biblical character may take on significant reverberations throughout the biblical text will find this work interesting and insightful.”—Benjamin J. M. Johnson, LeTourneau University, in Review of Biblical Literature, November, 2019.
