Provan, Long & Longman - A Biblical History of Israel

I recently finished another book I was trying to read for my course. The full review can be found on my other blog.

It's basically a book by three Christian experts on the Old Testament, discussing how we can know about things in history, then working through what the Bible says about the history of Israel in the Old Testament andseeing how that fits in with other people's ideas, with archaeology, with other documents, etc.

It's very very good - a bit heavy going when it's discussing how we can know stuff about history, but generally an interesting and helpful read (and one I largely agree with).
