Book List

The SOTS Book List provides short reviews of up to 500 books a year. It includes publications not only on the Old Testament directly but also on many related areas, including archaeology, epigraphy, Hebrew and related Semitic languages (especially Northwest Semitic), relevant ancient Near Eastern history and literature, the Hellenistic world, early Judaism, and social anthropology. The main value of the Book List is its comprehensiveness and its immediacy, in that it is usually among the first periodicals to review a book.

The Book List appears annually in June, and a copy is sent free to all paid-up members of the Society. It is also published as Issue 5 each year of the Journal for the Study of the Old Testament, included in the price of the annual subscription.
