Overview

A History of Israel refutes many of today's common misconceptions about Israel and sets down an accurate account of its history, from the Patriarchal Age to the birth of Christ, based on Holy Scriptures. With his customary thoroughness and attention to detail, Walter C. Kaiser, Jr., has carefully research his subject, assembled the facts, and conveyed his findings in a convincing narrative style. Kaiser not only uses the Bible as a resource, but also supports the Scriptures' historical claims with ancient Eastern documents and compelling archaeological evidence. 

The complete chronological history of Israel presents and explains:

* Current approaches to the study of the history of Israel
* Common fallacies found in modern secular historical study
* The most convincing proofs for the historical authenticity of the Bible

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This fascinating, highly readable book will enrich anyone’s understanding of the Old Testament because it calls on a vast wealth of historical material from nations and cultures surrounding Israel to paint a vivid background picture against which to read each section of the Old Testament, all the while upholding the complete truthfulness and historical accuracy of the biblical text.” 
 
—Wayne Grudem, research professor of theology and biblical studies, Phoenix Seminary


“The history of the core events of the Old Testament is under question these days. Many scholars argue that the account of the patriarchs, the Exodus, the Conquest and other important stories of the Old Testament did not take place. Walter Kaiser and Paul Wegner render the important service not only of defending the historicity of Scripture, but also of situating the redemptive history of the Old Testament in its broader ancient Near Eastern setting. I recommend this book to all serious students of the Bible.”
 
Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry professor of biblical studies, Westmont College


“In this thorough revision of A History of Israel, Walter Kaiser and Paul Wegner clearly and skillfully introduce readers to significant biblical history and background. These two gifted, faithful, and conservative Old Testament scholars have produced a volume that is accessible, well organized, and helpful to students, pastors, and informed church leaders. The maps, pictures, and illustrations make Israel’s history come alive.”

Christopher W. Morgan, dean and professor of theology, School of Christian Ministries, California Baptist University
