Studying The Ancient Israelites
Full Product Description
Unfortunately, as readers seek this kind of understanding, they are confronted with a variety of competing opinions and methods regarding the culture, history, sociology, and geography of the biblical story. Does archaeology "prove" the Bible? Is the Bible history, and if so, what kind? How should the Old Testament be approached as literature? These and other questions are addressed in 'Studying the Ancient Israelites', which provides a guide to the tools, methods, and goals of the study of ancient Israel. The book also examines the insights that can be gained from geography, archaeology, literary study, sociology, and historiography as well as the limitations of each of these disciplines. Here is an excellent text for Old Testament study.
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.
Studying The Ancient Israelites by Victor H. Matthews was published by IVP in October 2007 and is our 51210th best seller. The ISBN for Studying The Ancient Israelites is 9781844742257.

Studying the Ancient IsraelitesCarole Burrows, via The Good Book Stall
I have come across so many people who are put off reading the Old Testament, from Sunday School teachers and even clergy, through to under-graduates. This book should help such people as, although it is sufficiently detailed to be of value to students, it is written in a style which is accessible and interesting to the general reader. The book puts the Scriptures into their context of history, culture, sociology, geography, archaeology and literature, and guides the reader through both the insights and the limitations that the wider view provides.
