This comprehensive classic textbook represents the most recent approaches to the biblical world by surveying Palestine's social, political, economic, religious and ecological changes from Palaeolithic to Roman eras. Designed for beginners with little knowledge of the ancient world, and with copious illustrations and charts, it explains how and why academic study of the past is undertaken, as well as the differences between historical and theological scholarship and the differences between ancient and modern genres of history writing. Classroom tested chapters emphasize the authenticity of the Bible as a product of an ancient culture, and the many problems with the biblical narrative as a historical source. Neither "maximalist" nor "minimalist'" it is sufficiently general to avoid confusion and to allow the assignment of supplementary readings such as biblical narratives and ancient Near Eastern texts. This new edition has been fully revised, incorporating new graphics and English translations of Near Eastern inscriptions. New material on the religiously diverse environment of Ancient Israel taking into account the latest archaeological discussions brings this book right up to date.

I n Africa: The Glory, the Curse, the Remedy; the author Anthony Agbo in a spectacular and inspirational detail researched the bible and rare ancient authorities to establish that God through the mouths of His Prophets, pronounced broad and far reaching curses on Africa and Africans, the result of which put the continent and her people in the negative side of all indices of human fortune, growth and development. Tracing the African family tree from the patriarch Noah through her phenomenal rise and greatness in ancient time, to her sudden downfall, the author in an amazing inspirational treatise, woven with extra-ordinary suspense unveiled: the character and activities of the enigmatic biblical figure, Nimrod, the great African and first world ruler, who built the Tower of Babel, openly confronted the God of Heaven and originated Idolatry, the worship of the “gods of wood and stone” thereby leading Africans astray; the identity and pioneering works of Tehuti, the great African who laid the foundation for all academic knowledge on earth, and who the ancient Greeks referred to as the “master of all masters” and the “greatest of all greats”; the journey of the biblical Ark of the covenant in the ancient time from Jerusalem to Ethiopia where it resides today; why and how God cursed Africa and how this curse has impacted on the lives and endeavors of the black race; what is it that can return Africa to future world dominion; etc. This is a book of extraordinary revelations about Africa and God, her glory and curse-propelled downfall as well as remedial prescriptions.

For over a decade, A Biblical History of Israel has gathered praise and criticism for its unapologetic approach to reconstructing the historical landscape of ancient Israel through a biblical lens. In this much-anticipated second edition, the authors reassert that the Old Testament should be taken seriously as a historical document alongside other literary and archaeological sources. Significantly revised and updated, A Biblical History of Israel, Second Edition includes the authors' direct response to critics. In part 1, the authors review scholarly approaches to the historiography of ancient Israel and negate arguments against using the Bible as a primary source. In part 2, they outline a history of ancient Israel from 2000 to 400 BCE by integrating both biblical and extrabiblical sources. The second edition includes updated archaeological data and new references. The text also provides seven maps and fourteen tables as useful references for students.
