Publisher's Description

The texts from ancient Ugarit are among the most important modern discoveries for understanding the Bible. For more than thirty years, Stories from Ancient Canaan has been recognized as a highly authoritative and readable presentation of the principal Canaanite myths and epics discovered at Ugarit. This fully revised edition takes into account advances in the reading, understanding, and interpretation of these stories since 1978. It also includes two additional texts, expanded introductions, and illustrations. Coogan and Smith have collaborated to bring this classic up to date in order to provide accessible and accurate translations of these texts for a new generation of students.

Editorial Reviews

"In its new, second edition, Stories from Ancient Canaan should become a textbook of choice for all students interested in the cultures of the biblical world. Everything in the book has been reconsidered, revised, and updated to reflect the latest scholarship. It is a pleasure to welcome back an old friend, and that in a sparkling new dress which will ensure its continued long life and value." Peter Machinist, Hancock Professor of Hebrew and Other Oriental Languages, Harvard University
"The authors have provided us with a resource that will deepen readers’ appreciation of the literary creativity and cultural contributions of the people who lived in the centuries before the biblical traditions emerged. Highly recommended for all readers interested in cultural and religious history." Douglas A. Knight, Drucilla Moore Buffington Professor of Hebrew Bible and Professor of Jewish Studies, Vanderbilt University


"Stories from Ancient Canaan has remained one of the best presentations of Ugaritic texts since its first appearance. In this welcome new edition, the translations have been updated to reflect the great progress in Ugaritic studies over the past three decades, but they retain their wonderful freshness and accessibility." John Huehnergard, Professor Emeritus of Semitic Philology, Harvard University; Professor of Middle Eastern Studies, University of Texas at Austin

    As a history major in college this is an excellent book. It provides background, context and the translated text of the Ugaritic stories but with a proper balance not to be dry.

    I was looking for a book to find actual quotes a professor (he spoke ancient Greek, Latin and Ugaritic) provided.
