Excerpt

Excerpt from: Hidden Riches: A Sourcebook For the Comparative Study of the Hebrew Bible and Ancient Near East

"The Scriptures are exceedingly "respiratory": They breathe in the culture of their times, and breathe it back out in a different form. To the reader who learns to breathe the same air--the one who becomes familiar with the context--it is increasingly hard to believe that he or she once read the Bible without it. Reading the Hebrew Scriptures in context is an intoxicating high, like breathing pure oxygen: Everything is clearer and sharper, and the energy is immeasurably higher."--from the introduction
