Tendrils of musky incense curl about you in Baal's temple of seven elements. You light an oil lamp in reverence to the ancient deities. Have you ever wondered who were the deities in the land of Canaan before the Bible? A practical and well-documented guide, this work combines history and archaeology of the Canaanite world with modern insight.
