Welcome to the September issue of Ancient News. We’re beginning our 10-day sales again! A few of the titles are featured below, but be sure to click through to the whole sale to save 40% on some of our perennial best-sellers. Of course, you won’t want to miss our new and forthcoming titles, either. There’s sure to be something there to aid you in your research (or add to your wishlist!).

Have you read Bob Miller’ new book, The Dragon, the Mountain, and the Nations? (OK, I confess, I’m only partially through it right now.) There's a launch for his book on October 10, featuring a presentation by Tremper Longman and response by Bob, as well as a public lecture on the 15th. See Upcoming Events for details.

The Review of Biblical Literature posted reviews of three Eisenbrauns books in August. I’ve highlighted two of them below, with links to the full reviews.

Rounding out this month’s Ancient News are two new PSU Press books that you might find interesting. The second one, Robert the Devil, is a quick little read that I found enjoyable. The subtitle calls it a romance, but I would label it a morality tale or even a fantasy.

History, Memory, Hebrew Scriptures

A Festschrift for Ehud Ben Zvi

“It is a strength of this volume to offer the insights and suggestions found in studies dealing with the often-overlooked textual and epigraphic minutiae, the unsung ‘footnotes’ of biblical history and theology, which appropriately reflect the honoree’s intensive interest in and expertise over a myriad of textual and historical details relating to the Hebrew Bible. The book serves as a useful reference and develops many of Ben Zvi’s earlier textual observations. It will undoubtedly find a well-deserved place on the library shelves of many students as well as biblical scholars.”—Jeffrey P. Hudon, Andrews University in Review of Biblical Literature, August 2018
