Forwarding an up-to-date, conservative position on matters relating to ancient Israel's past from two distinguished Old Testament scholars, Walter C. Kaiser Jr. and Paul D. Wegner, A History of Israel, Revised Edition provides a comprehensive introduction to the history of ancient Israel—from the creation account in the Early Bronze Age through the Jewish Wars of the Intertestamental Period. This thoroughly revised edition focuses on Old Testament texts as well as ancient Near Eastern literary and archaeological sources to highlight important modern controversies surrounding this portion of Scripture. Topics treated include current approaches to the study of Israel's history, common fallacies in modern, secular biblical studies, and the evidence for the historical authenticity of the Old Testament accounts. This volume also includes over 600 photos, charts, and maps that serve as visual aids.
With clarity and skill, Kaiser and Wegner not only carefully defend the historicity of Scripture, but also successfully situate the redemptive history of the Old Testament in its broader ancient Near Eastern context. For all serious students of the Bible—from students and scholars to pastors and informed lay-readers—A History of Israel is an accessible, well-organized, fascinating, and invaluable resource.

"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 Israels history come alive."
