"A History of Israel is in every sense of the word a classic in the literature of theological education. Its substance and form express John Bright's conviction that Israel's faith was an essential factor in shaping the course of that people's story. It remains a refreshing alternative to the secularism and skepticism of much current writing about Israel's history."
James Luther Mays, Cyrus McCormick Emeritus
Professor of Hebrew and Old Testament,
Union Theological Seminary, Richmond, VA.
Unsurpassed for nearly half a century, and now with a new introduction and appendix by William P. Brown, Bright's A History of Israel will continue to be a standard for a new generation of students of the Old Testament.
Until his death, John Bright was the Cyrus H. McCormick Professor of Hebrew and the Interpretation of the Old Testament at Union Theological Seminary, Richmond, VA.
