Editorial Reviews

Book Description

This 1895 work considers the history of Palestine in the context of new archaeological material coming to light in the course of the nineteenth century. Sayce's approach opposed the 'higher criticism' of the Old Testament; in his opinion, 'in the narrative of the Pentateuch we have history and not fiction'. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This is / in my opinion / an outstanding review of the geography / peoples / keaders / military conflict. It does not seem to be the best organized or most clearly presented throughout this text. I am not qualified to address the accuracy of all of this content but it certainly is impressive. I recommend it. A minus to B plus.

This is the second book by this author that I have read, and it would appear that this book was written earlier than Sayce’s book on the nations around Israel, although it covers much of the same territory. It would appear that in the years between the publication of this book and the other, that there were some additional translations made between the two books that showed some of Hammurabi’s further career that was not known when he wrote the first book. It is striking that the two books (and no doubt other books of the author that I have yet to read yet) demonstrate a couple of truths that it is difficult to fully understand in our present time for many believers. For one, this author, among others [2], demonstrates the truth that archeology has tended by far to confirm the truth of the Bible. It is strikingly ironic that from the 19th century onward, the empirical evidence for the truth of the Bible increased even as the general cultural attitude towards accepting and applying the truths of the Bible became more and more imperiled by a corrupt culture.

This book, even if it contains a lot of information I had read from the author before (including a lot of primary sources like early transcriptions of the El Amarna Letters), has some significant pleasures to offer the reader. Among these pleasures is the fact that the author gives a lot of praise to fellow archeologists like Petrie and Pinch. Sayce himself was a recognized expert in several ancient languages and also for his insights in helping to solve many of the puzzles he encountered during his time, and he was secure enough as a researcher to give unstinting praise to other researchers for their expertise, which is not always a quality that is found among those who are eminent scholars.
