Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Israel has been the focus of much international attention in recent times. Many people, however, still have little understanding of this great land and its rich history. Biblical expert Jack Finegan here offers a concise, factually-based account of the long history (nearly 4,000 years) of the land of Israel and its people. While both the biblical and the modern periods of this country have been the subject of many studies, few books do what this one undertakes to do - namely, to give a continuous story which shows what happened to Israel during the long period between biblical times and the present. In addition to history, this easy-to-read and illustrated guide takes a thorough and timely look at Israel's geography and archaeology as well as its crucial role in the Middle East.
