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."
