Over the course of a 30-year career as a professor and researcher, eminent scholar William G. Dever has conducted many archaeological excavations in the Near East, resulting in a large body of award-winning fieldwork and a fascinating understanding of this period. The Eerdmans Israelite Studies Collection gathers four of Dever’s valuable texts on ancient Israelite society, history, and religion. Carefully researched and meticulously analyzed, his work presents a powerful case against revisionist claims attacking the historicity of ancient Israel and the Hebrew Bible. Throughout these volumes, he shows how modern archaeology brilliantly illuminates both life in ancient Palestine and the sacred Scriptures as we have them today. He builds the clearest, most complete picture yet of the Israel that existed during the Iron Age of ancient Palestine (1200–600 BC).
In this collection, you’ll find Dever’s analysis of folk religion in ancient Israel, which gives special attention to the goddess Asherah; his exploration of the history of ancient Israelites, the lives of ordinary Israelites, and the archaeological evidence for their origins; and much more. You’ll also benefit from an additional volume from scholar Nathan MacDonald which examines the diet of ancient Israelites, further fleshing out your study.
