  • This well-known book is a vivid and engrossing account of the life story of ancient Israel from the time of the Exodus from Egypt to the eve of the Christian era.

Fully revised and updated to take account of the latest archaeological findings and most recent changes in biblical interpretation this book will remain a major work of scholarship.
