Ancient Israel and its Literature
The Ancient Israel and Its Literature series publishes monographs, revised dissertations, and collections of essays on the history, culture, and literature of ancient Israel and Judah, particularly as these are reflected in or inform our reading of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. Works on the social world of the biblical writings, the ancient Near Eastern context in which ancient Israel and Judah originated and lived, biblical or theological themes, or other comparable areas of study will also be considered.

The SBL AIL editorial board is led by series editor Thomas C. Römer (University of Lausanne) and includes the following members:
Suzanne Boorer, Murdoch University
Mark G. Brett, Whitley College
Marc Brettler, Brandeis University
Cynthia Edenburg, The Open University of Israel
