Product description

Review

This excellent, comprehensive, and well-written volume will be an invaluable aid to students and an indispensable reference for scholars.
John H. Hayes
coauthor of A History of Ancient Israel and Judah
The rapidly changing scenario of biblical history is certainly in need of a clear, balanced, and comprehensive explanation. This book fills that requirement, providing a first-class resource for the scholar and the student, and I can recommend no better book for a new generation of biblical historians. Biblical History and Israel s Past will not be sitting on my bookshelf. It will lie permanently on my desk. . . . A splendid achievement.
Philip Davies
author of The Origins of Biblical Israel
In this highly readable and remarkably comprehensive study, Megan Moore and Brad Kelle have put in their debt all biblical scholars, whether or not they are specialists in the study of ancient and/or biblical history. The book is a one-stop shop in the changing state of the study of Israel s past since 1970, but it also includes Moore and Kelle s own judicious commentary and prognostications for the future. This volume is not to be missed!
Brent A. Strawn
coeditor of Qumran Studies: New Approaches, New Questions"

This volume is not to be missed!
"Bibliotheca Sacra "
This well-written and well-published volume is essential to anyone eager to keep abreast of the current issues and trends in Old Testament scholarship.
"Religious Studies Review"
Well-written and informative. . . . The book should serve well an advanced undergraduate classroom as well as graduate and seminary courses on the history of Israel and Judah.
"Expository Times"
Moore and Kelle have provided the much-needed service of gathering the bulk of the debates and arguments on Israel s past and its relationship to the Bible into one place. This book could serve as both an effective course textbook and a reference work, and it will continue to be a meaningful resource for years to come.
"Catholic Biblical Quarterly"
Provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art survey for the discipline of biblical history and it provides a resource for the new approaches and methodologies that have burgeoned since 1970. . . . Scholars and students alike will want to have this volume within arm s reach as they engage in the story of Israel s past.
"The Bible Today"
This is one research-laden book that makes compelling reading. It deserves a prize, and should be on the shelf of every practitioner of biblical interpretation, history, and theology.
"Review of Biblical Literature"
This is an important book. . . . It is informative and clearly written, and it summarizes complex discussions in digestible formats. . . . I hope that this book will find an abundance of readers.
"Choice" (American Library Association)
This clearly written book presents a detailed, comprehensive survey of the many debates taking place among scholars who study ancient Israel from a historical-critical perspective. . . . The volume is important reading for anyone interested in understanding the wide range of viewpoints and the various trends within this important area of study over the past four decades. Recommended.

This book fills that requirement, providing a first-class resource for the scholar and the student, and I can recommend no better book for a new generation of biblical historians.
