A concise study on the history of Israel. This is one of my favorite textbooks from college from one of my favorite classes. Great read for any Bible student. ( )

A good history book of Israel from Abraham to right before Christ (i.e., including the period between the Old and New Testaments). Wood holds conservative Christian views on the Bible, chronology, and his writing reflects his confidence in the Bible as the Word of God. I appreciate that the book was organized around the biblical texts (including references at each heading, and more within the text). The layout is good: not distracting, but helpful for those whose primary knowledge of Israel's early history comes from the Bible. I also appreciate the footnotes (rather than end notes). Finally, I appreciated the maps, both within the text and the color plates at the end. The text was designed to be accessible (i.e., somewhat informal) to undergraduate college students, and I found it to be readable to this end; however, I read the book in college and was amazed at how much more I understood reading the same book sixteen years later. I would recommend the book for any adult who is at times confused by chronology and customs in the Old Testament (both those who are new to Christianity, and those who are not). The historical background can deeply enrich the understanding of a careful student of God's Word.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031034770X, Hardcover)

Since its first publication in 1970, A Survey of Israel's History has established itself as a popular and useful text in Bible colleges and seminaries. This revision by David O'Brien, which brings A Survey of Israel's History up to date, is certain to add to its value and continue its popularity. A chapter on the Intertestamental Period has been added. Numerous line-maps, charts, and diagrams help to clarity details. An extensive chronological chart provides an overall summary of names and dates. Authoritative, thoroughly biblical, factually sound, and movingly human -- A Survey of Israel's History will prove enormously helpful to the student of the Bible, and to anyone in search of a definitive history of the chosen people.
