Product description

This revised edition, published in 1960, brings up to date a book first published in 1954 a concisely organized, simply written account of the society that produced the Bible. As the author traces the fluctuating fortunes of the Hebrews and Israelites between about 2000 and 300 B.C.E., the reader can see how Jewish religious concepts developed in the context of actual historical situations."

Review quote

"A first-class introductory work for the uninitiated, and one that can be read with profit by the mature student and scholar. Its brevity should tempt no one to disdain. In short compass this book contains the precipitate of years of study and reflection." Norman K. Gottwald, Review of Religion, March 1955 (reviewing the first edition)"
