For anyone that likes ANET, COS, Baal Cycle, Ugarit, Canaanite Inscriptions, Amarna, etc.  this resource is a 'sleeper':

https://www.logos.com/product/7338/prophets-and-prophecy-in-the-ancient-near-east 

It's actually two resources, original texts and translations. Although the author has collected those associated with 'prophets', there's quite a bit of overlap with other issues as well. 

I put 'prophets' in quotes because the concept of a prophet is far more variable outside Christian tradition (even jewish usage in 2nd Temple / DSS is quite variable).

Anyway, it's quite afffordable, includes the associated sources, and very readable even on an iPod.  Plus includes a Libronix version too!

Recommended.

(I'm sure David Paul will be along shortly.)

"God will save his fallen angels and their broken wings He'll mend."

It's a good price—the same as Books-A-Million.  You can view that TOC here:

Peace and Joy, Denise!                              Thanks so much for "bumping" this book!                        I have it; however, although I'm quite interested in the subject, I have never read the book.

                        So ...    thanks, indeed!               Just moved it up exponentially to a much higher priority of things I'd love to pursue when able ...   *smile*

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........
