I have The Ancient Gods Speak; I'm curious to know if it was culled from entries in the Oxford Encyclopedia or if it's entirely independent...

(Redford's one of my favorite authors, by the way, even if I frequently need a dictionary and other reference materials close at hand when I read him.)

Yes, _The Ancient Gods Speak_ was culled from the 3 volume encyclopedia. The articles are reproduced in their entirety, but are lacking the included bibliography at the end of the article. Instead, _Ancient Gods_ has a general biblio at the end of the book.

It's been reprinted as a very inexpensive paperback under a different title now, and for the life of me I can't remember the new title. Sad

Thanks!

While looking on Amazon to see if I could come up with another title for The Ancient Gods Speak (I couldn't), I bumped into this by Redford: A History of Ancient Egypt: Egyptian Civilization in Context (List Price: $120.24 - and that's the paperback price!) Shocked Anyone familiar with it?
