Drawn upon by top grammars, monographs, and commentaries, the Journal of Northwest Semitic Languages contains valuable articles dealing with linguistic, translational, literary, text-critical, historical, religious, and cultural issues related to Ancient Near Eastern texts and societies, as well as articles addressing theoretical issues underlying these fields. This collection includes 37 volumes in 55 issues of this important journal—more than 9,000 pages and hundreds of articles! Contributors to the JNSL include the most advanced scholars in the field of Near Eastern studies, making this the preeminent journal for linguistic, interpretive, exegetical, and historical studies of Northwest Semitic languages and their importance for understanding the context and language of the Hebrew Bible.
Combined with a wealth of resources for Hebrew, Aramaic, Ugaritic, Akkadian, and other Semitic-language studies, the Logos edition of the JNSL is the academic standard for Ancient Near Eastern scholarship. The Logos edition of the JNSL is an essential addition to the libraries of anyone wanting to go deeper into Ancient Near Eastern studies, including biblical languages, comparative Semitics, Old Testament background, textual criticism, and more.
