Horowitz's Mesopotamian Cosmic Geography has just gone on prepub. 

https://www.logos.com/product/49697/mesopotamian-cosmic-geography

This is a semi-technical ancient Near Eastearn work looking at how Assyrians and Babylonians understood the universe. Cited a good bit by John Walton and others. If you're doing any work on Genesis 1 (as I am), it's important.

I am unsure what you are asking, and why you are asking it. This isnt the place for personal attacks... but I don't think that is what you are trying to do... right (I hope)?

He clicked on my Faithlife profile, where I am listed as a "friendly heretical Christian, grad work in Semitics." IOW, I'm one of few Mormons on the message board, though I know a good number of users. Consider it a tongue-in-cheek description ;)

Thanks for this recommendation! For those who complain about Logos prices, see what this book costs in other formats.

yes that's right Ben. Just a curious statement you made. I would never attach another. Though I'm not Mormon, I have 'strayed' far from the 'flock' due do some pretty $%^&^* treatment from my so called board several years ago. However, due to that pleasant experience, I have studied a fair amount of so-called 'heretical' teachings. To be honest, some of it makes better sense than the typical Sunday school 'stuff.'

I'll leave it at that...

I want to plug Mesopotamian Cosmic Geography on prepub again, per the OP.

I checked on Amazon, where it's selling for only $250! Indifferent

So save yourself 90% and preorder on Logos
