Are there any commentaries that have history/origins of the ancient Israelite religion in the Exodus Christmas bundle?
I've been looking at some Psalms but don't have time right now to look up which one the professor referenced in the Old Testament class at the beginning of the semester, regarding "mountain-God". Ps 29 looks similar but NIB says it adapts some ancient Canaanite hymn.
Would the bundle be a good source for this kind of discussion? Out of the new ones, I have the Eerdmans Critical Commentary volume. The volumes I don't have I would value $449, so my "discount" would be 43.4% off for the 22 titles, which would be an average price of $11½ a volume. A deal is not good unless the discount is 60% off. I haven't yet calculated how much the discount would be compared to the reg. prices.

bump!
I'll spot the Ps reference while I study to take the test so it will probably be less than a week from now before I post.

Since the bundle is being offered for a while it's not or can't be as tremendous a deal as some short-term offers of bundles and individual titles. A few days ago I counted how I would value the items in the bundle (mostly based on just what they sound like from the titles) - as the discount I would be getting compared to how I value them would not be much greater than 40% I'm VERY hesitant. (The volume I valued the highest was the one by Origen in the Fathers of the Church -series.)

I'm unlikely to spend over a hundred US$ on Exodus during the next two months. Meanwhile there's time to figure out if there are any individual titles worth buying.
