This book is part of the Biblical and Oriental Series by Mercer, which also includes The Growth Of Religious And Moral Ideas In Egypt, and The Book Of Genesis For Bible Classes And Private Study. Taken from the Preface: 'This little book, by a student and lover of these ancient peoples, can give only a glimpse of one of the most fascinating problems of Semitic culture. The religious and moral ideas in Babylonia and Assyria, not only because of their close and unique relation to the Old Testament, and through it to the New Testament and to Christianity, but also because of themselves, are second to none in human interest.' Contents include: Chronological Outline Of Babylonian And Assyrian History; The Idea of God in Babylonia and Assyria; The Idea of Man in Babylonia and Assyria; The Idea of Mediation in Babylonia And Assyria; The Idea of the Future in Babylonia and Assyria; and, The Idea of Morality in Babylonia and Assyria.
