UBBL317 (Ruth & Esther): Old Testament Backgrounds/Atlases/Histories

This guide is intended to help those in UBBL317 begin their research on Ruth or Esther. Rev. 6/2022, Sharon Ralston

NOTE

Several of the resources listed in the boxes on this page provide some overlap in the kind of content provided in terms of background/ culture/daily life in Ancient Israel, as is the case also as far as what the "archaeology" books inform us about the history and material culture/daily life in Ancient Israel and the Levant.  See also the pages linked under the Commentaries tab on this research guide as those pages each also list a curated collection of monographs in addition to commentaries, some of which might deal with relevant background and/or history.
