An Anniversary Collection volume
The author of this volume, though a comparison of scriptural quotations with all present knowledge of the historical backgrounds of the Bible, shows that the Semitic people and their religion were more closely allied to Arabia than to the cultures of Egypt and Babylon.
James A. Montgomery was Professor of Hebrew and Aramaic at the University of Pennsylvania.
