    An interesting and thought-provoking book in the arena of both the modernist disdain for the reliability of the biblical texts as a source for doing history, and the postmodern skepticism to the possibility of reaching/revisiting the past. For many people, the first chapters seem quite long and tedious (just like reading N. T. Wright's "The NT and the People of God"). They are, however, the whole apologetic argument for the possibility of history that most conservatives are not developing. The v [...]

    Once the book actually starts reviewing the Biblical History of Israel, I found it a lot more interesting. The first 155 pages focus on justifying why historians should use the Biblical testimony when dissecting Israel's history. While I understand that that is a very important subject and the assault from skeptics on the text has been heavy, just one chapter (instead of three 50 + page chapters) may have been sufficient. Other than that this an essential book for the student of the Bible to put [...]

    A Biblical History of Israel by Iain Provan, V. Philips Long, and Tremper Longman III has been a useful and well-respected textbook for over a decade. It has been received with both praise and criticism for its unapologetic approach in the reconstruction of Israel by scholars and students alike, but the former has always seemed outweighed the latter. Now, significantly revised and updated, this second edition of A Biblical History of Israel proves to be more refined and useful than ever. If the [...]

    History is important. I know that many of us do not have fond memories of history class or for that matter the history teacher droning on for what seemed like an eternity about some minute point of days gone by. However unfortunate your experience with history class might have been, that does not negate the importance of understanding our past. This is especially true when it comes to engaging Scripture. Given the events recorded in the Bible are actual history, it goes without saying that if we [...]

    Chapter 1: The Death of Biblical History?K.W. Whitelam makes claims that biblical history is no longer viable, must move on to Palestinian history. The authors take to task this claim.First chapter essentially sets stage for the rest of the book. Authors are trying to revive biblical history while also challenging the presuppositions, biases, and methods of contemporary historiography of biblical history.I found this chapter kind of boring. Also seems to assume you are familiar with the field.Ch [...]

    I read a biblical history of Israel, in exchange for review from Edelweiss. The book was written by Iain Provan, V. Phillips Long, and Tremper Longman III. The book was published by Westminster John Knox Press. I chose this book because I read Israel at War for review and was confused. A lot of the information mentioned was new to me. I chose this book because it discusses the history of Israel versus the wars between Israel and other Arabian countries. The book is written from an academic, rese [...]

    I'm of two minds. I liked their work with the theory of how to write history (pushing back against supposedly scientific methods.) But I was a bit disappointed with the actual history. I was hoping to really get a nice picture that put the puzzle pieces together for me. Instead, it was so engaged with the nature of history that the history itself didn't really come to life. For many, the book will be worth reading for the theory alone. But for those that just want the history to come alive this [...]

    Four hundred pages. Ðe last hundred are endnotes, very informative & intereſtiŋ ones; ðe firſt hundred or ſo, an extenſive diſcußion on ðe hiſtoriography of ðe Hiſtory of Biblical Iſrael; ðe core two hundred is a very intereſting Hiſtory of Biblical Iſrael wiþ a keen eye on critical (& oðerwiſe) hiſtoriography.

    A dense, academic volume that surveys ancient Israel's history while dealing with historiography issues throughout. This book demonstrates the historical reliability of the Bible through a careful reading of the Scripture as well as extra-biblical historical sources.An updated edition is now available.

    Modern histories of Israel refuse to use the Bible. Provan rejects this modern notion and grounds the history of Israel in the Scriptures with a careful reading of the text along with a careful consideration of archeology and extra-biblical resources.

    Not the most gripping, but well-written. Robust defense of the Bible's historical testimony in light of today's scholarly (unfounded) skepticism.

    Probably the most balanced history of Israel I've read yet. Sound, logical, fair, but most of all inspiring.

    An in-depth evangelical look at the historiography issues that many of today's scholars use to argue the fallibility and errancy of scripture.
