Designed as a supplementary resource for students who have an interest in the ancient Near East and biblical history, this volume provides a basic introduction to the historical, archaeological, and socio-contextual aspects of ancient Israel during its early foundation period through the end of the monarchy in Judah. Victor Matthews integrates extra-biblical information on the physical realities of geo- and super-power politics, international and interregional movement of peoples, and the evolutionary process of complex states in the ancient Near East with information from biblical narratives in order to explore the development of ancient Israelites' identity, cultural traditions, and interactions with other major cultures. In particular, he examines aspects of everyday life in both village culture and urban settings as a key to the development of social, legal, and religious traditions and practices. The History of Bronze and Iron Age Israel features an easy to navigate format, fairly non-technical language, and a series of informative insets that highlights important methodological concepts and comparative material.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Victor Matthews has produced an accessible, fair, and balanced study of the history of Bronze and Iron Age Israel. Besides his fluency with the extra-biblical and archaeological tools needed in examining these periods, Matthew particularly incorporates memory studies to help students understand the different functions of foundation stories in their retellings in the course of Israel's history. Highly recommended!"--Gale A. Yee, Nancy W. King Professor of Biblical Studies Emerita, Episcopal Divinity School
