Israel’s history is—to a large degree—the world’s history, because the people and events in the history of Israel and the texts which describe them have reached to the far corners of the world. Yet the history of Israel remains under-studied, under-appreciated, and often controversial. Who were the Israelites, and what kind of world did they inhabit?
The 19-volume History of Israel Collection brings together the most important scholarly works on Israel’s history. This collection contains the contributions of 90 scholars—biblical scholars, historians, archaeologists, and sociologists—in both edited volumes and book-length monographs. In addition to the Hebrew Bible, these scholars take into account a wide range of literature from the ancient Near East—including Eblaite, Amorite, Ugaritic, Akkadian, Phoenician, and numerous other sources—plus the latest archaeological and historical findings from the Near East.
With the Logos Bible Software edition, you have unprecedented access to the most important scholarly material on the history and culture of the ancient Near East in general and Israel in particular. The powerful search tools in your digital library help you locate the specific material relevant to your study. All references to the Old Testament are directly linked to the Hebrew texts in your library, along with your preferred English translations. What’s more, double-clicking any word in any language automatically opens up your preferred lexicons and searches for a match—giving you access to definitions, etymology, and usage examples. These advanced tools make the Logos edition of these important works on Israel’s history an important addition to the libraries of scholars, pastors, and students of the Old Testament.
