The Raging Torrent brings together all the cuneiform historical texts composed during the 9th to 6th centuries BCE that relate to Ancient Israel. This is the period during which Assyria and Babylonia cast their imperial shadow over the Near East and brought the kingdoms of Israel and Judah under their control. Some of the texts have direct bearing on biblical accounts, but the net has been cast wide, beyond the borders of Ancient Israel, to include texts dealing with Tyre, Damascus, Ashdod, and others.

The English translations of the texts have been based on the latest scholarly editions of the original documents; each is accompanied by an introduction and an explanatory note that enable the reader to follow the course of events. The critical treatment of the individual documents clarifies the nature of these building blocks of history, a task that is the prerequisite for erecting the historical edifice.

Illustrative material—maps and photographs of relevant artifacts—provide additional accessibility to the sources of this intriguing period in the history of the ancient Near East.
