Immensely readable and digestible in just a few sittings, this book examines the complete history of ancient Israelfrom Abraham to the Roman destruction of the Second Temple in 70 . Offers highest-quality authorship from respected leaders in their fields. Provides numerous color and black-and-white photos, maps, charts, and timelines.
It covers ancient Israel from its beginnings (a rather murky past) until the destruction of the second temple in . . 70. Where the history is not well-established, the author presents the different theories and the evidence (biblical and extra-biblical) behind them. I'm using it to elucidate my study of the Old Testament, and it's been hugely helpful. What additional detail can we gain by recourse to the archeological record? Can it be used to help us better understand of the motivations and life styles of the Bible's writers or its actors? For the faithful of course, no recourse to an independent archeological record is necessary.
