Spanning 1500 years, this chronicle charts all the leaders of Israel from the ancestors through the united monarchy under David and Solomon, to the fall of Israel (to the Assyrians) and Judah (to the Babylonians), ending with the Second Temple Period, which saw Persian and Greek rule, and finally, Roman domination. The volume covers crucial questions in biblical scholarship, such as the fierce debates about interpretation of the Bible and how archaeology can inform our readings of Old Testament accounts, as well as the concept of kingship itself as it applies to ancient Israel.

Reviews for Chronicle of the Old Testament Kings: The Reign-by-Reign Record of the Rulers of Ancient Israel

The names of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will be familiar to most people from childhood readings of the Old Testament. But what did they actually do? What happened to their wives? Why did they often act in such seemingly bizarre ways? This book deals reign by reign with Israel's most prominent figures and leaders, examining biblical events in the light of more recent findings and scholarship, and setting the record in context. A useful and intriguing guide for both Old Testament beginners and those who want to colour in the often sparse biblical picture. (Kirkus UK)
