Item Description...
Overview
From the tumbling walls of Jericho to a Jewish girl who became the queen of Persia, the historical books of the Bible are intriguing and unquestionably fascinating. In this companion volume to his Handbook on the Pentateuch, veteran Old Testament professor Victor Hamilton demonstrates the significance of the messages contained in these biblical books. To do so, Hamilton carefully examines content, structure, and theology using rhetorical criticism, inductive Bible study techniques, published scholarship, archaeological data, word studies, and text-critical evidence. Hamilton details the events and implications of each book chapter by chapter, providing useful commentary on overarching themes and the connections and parallels between Old Testament texts. Using theological and literary analysis, this comprehensive introduction examines historical issues, attempting to uncover and discover their thrust and theological messages. For those who wish to do additional research, each chapter is appended with a bibliography of recent, relevant scholarship. Undergraduate students of advanced biblical studies will find this volume enlightening and helpful as they forge their way through the historical books, and pastors will find useful insight for their encounter with and exposition of this portion of Scripture.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not perfect, but still one of the best  Sep 12, 2007
I really like the overview that Hamilton gives on all the books. I don't agree with all of his statements, but he does a great job on summarizing the 12 books of history.

Go to a good library and read it, and then judge for yourself. It has been an immense help to me in my teaching ministry.
 
Apalled  Sep 1, 2007
I bought this book as a requirement for a masters level class for the Baptist Seminary I attend. The book at first glance seems to be conservative and orthodox, but buyer and reader beware! It reads like a novel and treats the Word of God like one. The author considers himself to have written a "unique" and intriguing history of Israel. The history of Israel is already intriguing and inpsired by God. He views Samuel as a bitter, vindictive old man, and reads between the lines to trash the normal understanding and interpretation of biblical events and history. Rather than simply summarizing the history of Israel in a scholarly fashion, Hamilton takes it upon himself to write something "new", using nuanced language to subtily cast doubt on standard, logical, and faithful interpretations; for example.. he tries to make David and Solomon look vindictave to establish their kingdoms, when in reality it was God who established them and sanctioned the removal of enemies. He villifies Samuel, making him look like an enemy of Saul, when in reality Samuel weeps over Sauls removal as king. ( this part is left out). The book is an excellent example of the abuse of scholarship and elite academic snobbery.
