Most Helpful Customer Reviews

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By James D. Crabtree VINE VOICE on December 31, 2012
Format: Paperback
This book is interesting but on the surface it appears to be simply a book about the history of the ancient near east, which in my mind covers the Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Persian and Assyrian civilizations prior to the Christian era. It does indeed cover this geographic area and this period in time, but each chapter looks at a civilization and its relationship to Judea and the ancient Israelites. As such, it is well-written and the maps included with it are excellent. However, it does spend much time discussing Scripture and comparing it to known ancient texts and very little time on the cultures of the Near Eastern empires, something I would expect of a good history text. While a good book I think it would mostly appeal to the Biblical scholar.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This concise book introduces the reader to the important people groups of the region. The historical material is presented clearly. The parallels to material in the Hebrew Bible is laid out in a straight forward manner.
