The series Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für die alttestamentliche Wissenschaft (BZAW) covers all areas of research into the Old Testament, focusing on the Hebrew Bible, its early and later forms in Ancient Judaism, as well as its branching into many neighboring cultures of the Ancient Near East and the Greco-Roman world.

All three volumes constitute an excellent source for historical and literary similarities between ancient Greece and Israel. But the book has not been marketed well, is very expensive, and has remained obscure.
