Written for a knowledgeable general readership, Professor Dever reinvigorates discussion of the origins of ancient Israel. Dever rejects both the revisionists who characterize biblical literature as pious propaganda and the conservatives who are afraid to even question its factuality. Through his exhaustive examination of the archaeological evidence, he instead seeks to approach the biblical text and the external data with no preconceptions, singling out where the two lines of evidence converge.
