Reviews - What do customers think about The Philistines: Their History and Civilization (Schweich Lectures, 1911)?

Great Book  Mar 8, 2005
This is a very impressive study on a culture with its own origins (the Philistines also known as the Pelest were a migrating peopel from Ancient Greece). The book studys their religion, way of life, history, and people. A Great Book!
Fill Your Head With Hair, Long Beautiful Hair  May 13, 2004
I picked up this book on these Samson-Blinders at the library the other day. It had obviously been rebound, but was in great shape. When I opened it I found it dates from 1914! And, stranger still, was recently in print. Author R.A. Stewart Macalister (M.A., F.S.A., Professor of Celtic Archaeology, University College, Dublin) was interested in the Philistines from a Biblical perspective, which was almost all there was in 1914 regarding the Philistines.

The then-recent finds of the upper Euphrates basin and adjoining regions have helped shaped the view of the Philistines. However, it's not all that different from 1914, as most of what we know of the Philistines originated in the Bible. Without the Bible, the Philistines would be at best obscure.

This is still a useful book despite being seemingly out of date, and despite his reliance on the conventional pseudochronology (he was after all pre-Velikovsky).
