Ancient Israel: From Abraham To The Roman Destruction Of The Temple, 3rd Edition
Ancient Israel: From Abraham to the Roman Destruction of the Temple, 3rd Edition
Considered the leading book on the subject, this book is an authoritative exploration of the complete history of ancient Israel—from Abraham, the first Hebrew, to the Roman destruction of the Second Temple in 70 A.D. It offers superlative authorship from acknowledged leaders in their specialties, from a wide range of nationalities, faiths, and backgrounds. The book is quite manageable in length and is packed with vivid color and black-and-white photographs, maps, charts, and timelines.
"The book arrived and I am enjoying it immensely. It is one of the better resources on the background of the Old Testament and I'm especially impressed by the parade of authors. If I have occasion (I hope) to teach Old Testament Survey, this will definitely be one of my texts." -- Professor Harry Hight, Virginia Highlands Community College
