    This book made the Old Testament of the Bible a much more believable as well as so interesting. Knowing the background of the civilization back in those times and how people lived and thought, brought the Old Testament of the Bible alive for me. How various beliefs in religion evolved in to the true one of Jesus Christ and God. Those people were very human and went through the same type of hardships as we are going through today - wars, ethnicities, etc. It was also amazing that those people could live through all their hardships and still live. I bought this book as a gift for a daughter of mine. I had borrowed the book from my Priest, and she expressed an interest in reading it, so got on the internet and bought the book for her for Christmas,. I am waiting to see what she has to say about it.

    Ancient Israel by Harry Orlinsky is the first book in the Development of Western Civilization series from Cornell University Press. In it, Dr. Orlinsky traces the steps of the Jewish people from their early origins in the Fertile Crescent, through Egyptian captivity, the Exodus, the period of the Judges, the Kingdom, the Babylonian exile and eventually to the Restoration.Like many scholars, Dr. Orlinsky dismisses the historical credibility of the supernatural events recorded in the Bible and doubts the direct, personal interaction between God and people. Even so, he affirms the Bible as "constituting unusually reliable historical documents of antiquity." This good little book is an easy to read, relatively short survey of the Old Testament. He intertwines the historical record with the prophetic message to form a clear picture of the ancient Jewish life.As good as this book is, Dr. Orlinsky, I'm quite sure, would recommend that you just go straight to the source. Want to know the history of ancient Israel? Just read the Bible.
