Description

Covering the period of the thirteenth century B.C.E. to the fall of Jerusalem in 586 B.C.E., Isserling, a senior scholar, synthesizes the social, historical, geographical, and archaeological materials relevant to studying ancient Israel in its ancient Near Eastern context. Isserlin has an accessible style and brings the latest in biblical research to students and general readers. The stunning array of 85 photographs-plus maps, line drawings, and charts-make this a rich resource for scholars as well.

Endorsements

"The Israelites has many strengths. Chief among these is the breadth of its coverage...Isserlin makes more use of archaeological data than any comparable work I know. If the average reader of BAR...wants to purchase a single reference work, it should probably be Isserlin's The Israelites."
-- William G. Dever, Biblical Archaeology Review

Reviews

"Written in an accessible style, ... The Israelites is an excellent introductory text for college and/or seminary students. It is also useful for educated laypersons, especially Sunday school teachers who desire challenges for both themselves and their students. The 85 glossy black-and-white photographs, maps, line drawings and charts are worth the cost of the book!"
