Out this week in the Review of Biblical Literature, Robert B. Coote’s (Senior Research Professor of Hebrew Exegesis and Old Testament at the Graduate Theological Union) review of Israel and the Assyrians:

‘Crouch’s overall argument is judicious, refreshingly disputatious, and convincing… Besides fulfilling its purpose of rebuttal, the book is useful as an excellent and up-to-date advanced introduction to the literature on ancient Near Eastern treaty and oath forms as these relate to the Bible. Its value is immense.’
