4.0 out of 5 stars interesting presentations from some of the great minds of a biblical archaeology 27 Nov. 2014
By Lynne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book includes presentations of three great scholars in the field of Biblical scholarship and biblical archaeology. Each presents his views on the origins of the Israelites and the Bible as a source for historical information on the origins of that people. The theories are thought provoking and generally well supported in the space allowed. The book makes it clear that the true history and origins of the Israelite people and their religion is still open for debate. I would recommend this book to all who have an open mind regarding the origins of ancient Israel and the biblical narrative.

5.0 out of 5 stars A marvelous work 25 Feb. 2014
By Nicholas Finke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a record of a symposium about what the archaeology of Bronze and Iron Age Palestine can or cannot tell us about the origins of the nation of Israel. There is a fairly wide range of opinion expressed. The great merit of this book is that the scholarly opinions presented are supported by enough data, but not too much. For all that it contains a very academic conversation, it is still quite readable for a non specialist reader such as myself. I strongly recommend it.
5.0 out of 5 stars This book is worth reading multiple times 1 Sept. 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I purchased the Kindle version after reading this book at my church library because the information is worth reading multiple times. There are not many history books on ancient Israel that I have liked, but this one is solid and in to the point. There is a lot of comparison with the canonical versions in Judges and Joshua and various interpretations of archaeological data to date. Don't pass this up if you are studying Israel for lay or professional ministry even if it is not assigned reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenge your mind to "New Thinking" 8 Aug. 2014
By June E. Redburn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Enjoyable lecture series given by three insightful experts in ancient history and archeology. Interesting to see each build his case using archeological data and extra-biblical texts. The three come to differing conclusions which is thought provoking. A wonderful read!
5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to Biblical archeology 22 Jun. 2014
By DAVID J. KARLEN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an excellent review of Biblical archeology and the history and development of Israel. The authors separate what we have learned from the archeological record vs the biblical narrative. I found this book to be very illuminating and I highly recommend it to any one interested in ancient religions and cultures.
