While this short book does supply some much needed translations for the lay reader of Assyrian myths that share many similarities with the Bible and clearly indicate that many of the Biblical stories are transmuted myths from a prior age and pagan religion , the author of the commentary somehow believes that the fact that the stories exist in a prior form proves the truth of the Bible--or was he just protecting himself from accusations of irreligion?
Babel and Bible A quick but fascinating read. One wonders why this information is either ignored or suppressed as it would certainly enhance our understanding of those Christian myths seemingly at odds with our western cultural understanding of them.
