However, if you are looking for a basic summary of current scholarship on old testament chronology, along with lots of great photos and maps, this is a great book to buy. The text is organized well and the photos really enhance the learning experience. I bought this because I needed to get a very quick summary of the kings and I was not disappointed. I also feel more confident that I would be able to follow a more scholarly treatment of the problems in old testament chronology having read this book.
I give it three stars for one reason -- it is a useful basic reference. In my research I use it to give me a chronology of the kings and for the maps. Other than that, it is not very worthwhile.
In short, this is a limited perspective that bypasses some essentials of the story it is telling.Read more ›
I happily recommend this book.
Illustrations throughout bring the narrative to life- maps, photos of the land, reproductions of artworks from those on ancient texts to more recent works, contemporary artefacts...
Interesting and informative. NOT a book arguing for Christianity or Judaism, just a historical background to the Scriptures- you can read and make up your own mind on those!

An excellent member of this long-running series. The text is clear and direct, the timelines well laid-out. A great introduction to the Hebrew kigndoms.Published on March 10, 2013 by Dr Garry
Obviously due to the size of the book, not all the information on each ruler can be in this book. This is a good expanded overview with images and historical information. Read morePublished on November 7, 2011 by carolinaautoguy
This is a major disappointment for several reasons. The overwhelming majority of the book is a secular rehash of what is in the Bible, but with liberal scholarship and scepticism. Read morePublished on April 4, 2006 by Hazekel
