Publishers Description
One of the premier historians of ancient Israel provides an overview of the issues involved in reconstructing the history of ancient Palestine. He demonstrates how one must integrate the study of geography, climate, archaeological discoveries, demography, oral traditions, and written documents-both biblical and nonbiblical-in order to provide the fullest picture of ancient Israel's experience. "The Bible is not a textbook in history, and it was never intended to be one. ... What is regarded as history can only emerge from the result of the historiographer's work. The task of establishing what happened in the past is the ideal, but it can be no more than an interpretation." - Gsta W. Ahlstrm

Reviews - What do customers think about Ancient Palestine (Facets)?

An Intro and footnotes -- Zero History Content  Jun 21, 2004
The big problem with this book is its misleading title:"Ancient Palestine: A Historical Introduction". Do you think you might get some history? Nay not so. This is merely 50+ pages of discussion explaining how difficult it is to get a true picture of ancient history. Good only for sending to a hard shell fundementalist who firmly believes every word in the Bible is gospiel truth. Lots of references to where the bible can't be historical accurate. Following what would be an introduction in a normal book, there is a page or two of one line chronological listings of historical periods. Thats it. If you think you are going to get a summary of Palestine History - you will be as shocked and disappointed as I was.
