Studying the Ancient Israelites: A Guide to Sources and Methods
Matthews, Victor H.

Grand Rapids: Baker, 2007 pp. 232. $21.99


Description: Archaeology wont prove or disprove the Bibles 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.
