Written by two leading Old Testament scholars and widely used throughout the world, Philip Davies and John Rogerson's The Old Testament World describes the historical, social, and cultural setting in which the Old Testament was written and examines the major genres of literature that it contains. Ideally suited for college-level introductory classes, it illuminates the literature of the Old Testament by showing how it was shaped by the events, social structures, and religious and intellectual ideas of the ancient civilizations and cultures in which it was produced.

Philip R. Davies is Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies at the University of Sheffield in England. He is the author of numerous influential books and articles on ancient Israelite history and religion.


John Rogerson is Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies at the University of Sheffield in England. He is author of more than a dozen books, including the Oxford Illustrated History of the Bible.
