About "Ancient Israel's History: An Introduction to Issues and Sources"

Top biblical scholars and historians have created this readable, substantive text introducing students to the current and relevant issues related to the study of ancient Israel. Value is placed on the Bible's historical contribution without overlooking critical issues and challenges in understanding Israel's history.
- Koorong

:The history of Israel is a much-debated topic in Old Testament studies. On one side are minimalists who find little of historical value in the Hebrew Bible. On the other side are those who assume the biblical text is a precise historical record. Many serious students of the Bible find themselves between these two positions and would benefit from a careful exploration of issues in Israelite history.

This substantive history of Israel textbook values the Bible's historical contribution without overlooking critical issues and challenges. Featuring the latest scholarship, the book introduces students to the current state of research on issues relevant to the study of ancient Israel. The editors and contributors, all top biblical scholars and historians, discuss historical evidence in a readable manner, using both canonical and chronological lenses to explore Israelite history.

Illustrative items, such as maps and images, visually support the book's content. Tables and sidebars are also included.
