A Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2006 Description
This anthology of Sumerian literature constitutes the most comprehensive collection ever published, and includes examples of most of the different types of composition written in the language, from narrative myths and lyrical hymns to proverbs and love poetry. The translations have benefited both from the work of many scholars and from our ever-increasing understanding of Sumerian. In addition to reflecting the advances made by modern scholarship, the translations are written in clear, accessible English. An extensive introduction discusses the literary qualities of the works, the people who created and copied them in ancient Iraq, and how the study of Sumerian literature has evolved over the last 150 years.

Daily, each of us must choose between giving in to the world’s pressure to trust in ourselves, or yielding to God’s desire for us to hand control over our lives to Him. While following God’s directions when you don’t see immediate results can be difficult, the payoff will always be tremendous.

*use trials as opportunities to strengthen your faith
*leave a strong spiritual foundation for the generations that follow you
