ABOUT THIS BOOK

A critical resource for students and scholars of the ancient Near East and the Bible


Josette Elayi’s Sennacherib, King of Assyria is the only biography of Sargon II’s famous son.
Elayi traces the reign of Sennacherib in context in order to illuminate more fully the life and contributions of this warlord, builder, innovator, and social reformer—a unique figure among the Assyrian kings. Elayi offers both an evaluation of this royal figure and an assessment of the Assyrian Empire by interpreting the historical information surrounding the decisive events of his reign.


Features:



  • Exploration of why Sennacherib did not seize Jerusalem or remove Hezekiah from the throne

  • An extensive investigation of annals, royal inscriptions, letters, palace reliefs, clay tablets, and excavation reports

  • Maps and tables
