Moore and Kelle provide a comprehensive yet accessible survey of the ways in which the study of the Old Testament and Israel's past have progressed since the middle of the twentieth century--trends that have till now been difficult for nonspecialists to access and follow. Beginning with the patriarchs and matriarchs, Moore and Kelle summarize major scholars, viewpoints, issues, and developments in the field of study for each major epoch of Israel's early history. Each chapter includes pull-boxes explaining key terms and concepts, discussion questions to deepen understanding, and suggestions for further reading.

-coauthor of Biblical Exegesis: A Beginners Handbook
This excellent, comprehensive, and well-written volume will be an invaluable aid to students and an indispensable reference for scholars.
-University of Sheffield
"The rapidly-changing scenario of 'biblical history' is certainly in need of a clear, balanced and comprehensive explanation. This book certainly fills that requirement, providing a first-class resource for the scholar and the student, and I can recommend no better book for a new generation of biblical historians. This book will not be standing on my bookshelf. It will lie permanently on my desk. I congratulate the authors on a splendid achievement.

-coauthor of Qumran Studies: New Approaches, New Questions
"In this highly readable and remarkably comprehensive study, Megan Moore and Brad Kelle have put all biblical scholars in their debt whether they are specialists in the study of ancient and/or biblical history (the two are not the same, as they rightly point out) or not. The book is a one-stop shop in the changing state of the study of Israel's past since 1970, but it also includes Moore and Kelle's own judicious commentary and prognostications for the future. This volume is not to be missed!

"The rapidly changing scenario of biblical history is certainly in need of a clear, balanced, and comprehensive explanation. This book fills that requirement, providing a first-class resource for the scholar and the student, and I can recommend no better book for a new generation of biblical historians.

"This well-written and well-published volume is essential to anyone eager to keep abreast of the current issues and trends in Old Testament scholarship."
Religious Studies Review
"Well-written and informative. . . . The book should serve well an advanced undergraduate classroom as well as graduate and seminary courses on the history of Israel and Judah."
"Moore and Kelle have provided the much-needed service of gathering the bulk of the debates and arguments on Israels past and its relationship to the Bible into one place. This book could serve as both an effective course textbook and a reference work, and it will continue to be a meaningful resource for years to come."
Catholic Biblical Quarterly
"Provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art survey for the discipline of biblical history and it provides a resource for the new approaches and methodologies that have burgeoned since 1970. . . . Scholars and students alike will want to have this volume within arms reach as they engage in the story of Israels past."
The Bible Today

"This is an important book. . . . It is informative and clearly written, and it summarizes complex discussions in digestible formats. . . . I hope that this book will find an abundance of readers."
Choice (American Library Association)
"This clearly written book presents a detailed, comprehensive survey of the many debates taking place among scholars who study ancient Israel from a historical-critical perspective. . . . The volume is important reading for anyone interested in understanding the wide range of viewpoints and the various trends within this important area of study over the past four decades. Recommended."
