God and Man in Akkadian and Hebrew Prayers

Anna Elise Zernecke’s Gott und Mensch in Klagegebeten aus Israel und Mesopotamien. Die Handerhebungsgebete Ištar 10 und Ištar 2 und die Klagepsalmen Ps 38 und Ps 22 im Vergleich (AOAT, 387; Münster: Ugarit-Verlag, 2012 [or is it 2011?)) is out. I’m not completely sure this is news but it is news to me. Used volumes are already available from Eisenbrauns! The table of context entices.
Based on Zernecke’s chapter, “A Shuilla: Ishtar 2 ‘The Great Ishtar Prayer’” in Alan Lenzi, ed. Reading Akkadian Prayers and Hymns: An Introduction (Ancient Near East Monographs, 3; Atlanta: Society of Biblical Literature, 2011), 257-290, Gott und Mensch in Klagegebeten could be an abnormally interesting work indeed.
