Item Description...
Overview
This readable guide for students of the Old Testament deals with the world of the ancient Near East as it directly relates to the Bible, introduces the study of Israelite history "from the ground up," and shows how the Bible can (and cannot) be used as a historical source.

Publishers Description
Archaeology won't prove or disprove the Bible's truth claims. But archaeology, combined with other bodies of evidence like historical geography, extrabiblical texts, anthropological insights, and careful study of the writings of ancient Israel, allow us to reconstruct a reasonable picture of the ancient Israelites: how they lived, what they thought, and what their Scriptures mean.
In "Studying the Ancient Israelites," a seasoned professor uses accessible writing and an inviting page design to introduce students and serious readers to the foundations of our understanding of the people of the Old Testament.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good General Overview of What is Envolved in the Study of the Israelites.  Oct 9, 2009
This book explains the various aspects of the study of Ancient Israel by different possible approaches. It also spells out the different limiting factors and the things that may well be impassable obstructions to the complete understanding of what went on in that so distant past, as in the inevitable degradation of the evidence.
