In this much-anticipated textbook, three respected biblical scholars have written a history of ancient Israel that takes the biblical text seriously as an historical document. Whilst also bearing in mind nonbiblical sources and taking note of what disciplines like archaeology, anthropology, and sociology suggest concerning the past, the authors accomplish that throughout the context and paradigm of the Old Testament canon, which is held as the main document for reconstructing Israel’s history. In Part One, the authors set the volume in context and review past and current scholarly debate about learning Israel’s history, negating arguments against the use of the Bible as the central source. In Part Two, they are seeking to retell the history itself with an eye to the entire factors explored in Part One.
