The Land that I Will Show You is a collection of 17 articles by colleagues and former students of Professor J. Maxwell Miller, who taught at the Candler School of Theology, Emory University. The papers deal with the history, chronology, geography, archaeology, and epigraphy of ancient Israel and its setting in the Levant, and range from broad methodological discussions of historiography to focused analyses of individual texts or historical issues. A review of Miller’s career and a select bibliography of his publications are also included.
