Although scholars have for centuries primarily been interested in using the study of ancient Israel to explain, illuminate, and clarify the biblical story, Megan Bishop Moore and Brad E.

    Fantastic book. The breadth and accessibility of this overview of the current state of research is incredible. The suggested reading at the end of each chapter provides a wonderful selection of equally readable texts.

    This was a beast, but worth the read. The title of this book says it all. Biblical History is something different than Israel's past. At least, that is what the general trend in OT scholarship is today. This book covers the trends in OT scholarship concerning the history of the Old Testament/Israel. It describes the different viewpoints held by scholars before the 70's and after. One of the great things about this book is the overview of history of scholarship concerning Israel's past.

It describes the different viewpoints held by scholars before the 70's and after. One of the great things about this book is the overview of history of scholarship concerning Israel's past. Generally, this volume is descriptive in nature, and every chapter is broken up into generally the same sections covering different periods of Israel's history. For example, the reader will find a section on say, the Monarchial periods, and they will find pre-1970 scholarship and then post 1970 scholarship. Generally, this trend will be kept throughout the book. The volume is a large volume and has a tendency to repeat itself often, sometimes at length (a paragraph or two). They probably could have made this volume shorter by cutting out the repetition. However, the intended audience for this book is the college/seminary student and the repetition could be for instructional purposes.

    Really great, readable, and accessible introduction to modern scholarship's various positions on Israel's history. Lots of further reading suggestions that I will be sure to follow up on.
