Anyone acquainted with the problem of death in the HB will know how formidable and tortuous a task it is to write about it. In this recent contribution to the subject, S. provides a fresh and detailed look at Judahite mortuary practices with special emphasis on the Iron Age bench tomb...S. has proffered some interesting ideas in a valuable contribution to the growing body of literature on this topic, and one that will likely generate further research. * Seth Cole, Journal for the Study of the Old Testament *
Suriano is to be commended for this effort to bring social and archaeological questions to bear on the meaning of the Hebrew text. He has made an impressive contribution to the study of death in ancient Israel. * Matthew McAffee, Welch College, Bulletin for Biblical Research *
