David Noel Freedman editor of the Anchor Bible series Readable and Revolutionary. Finkelstein and Silberman have staked out an advanced position in some of the most controversial areas of biblical and archaeological research in our day. Boldly and provocatively, the authors challenge much of the received wisdom and confident assumptions of many in this discipline, and check off the hot-button points in sequence: the Patriarchs (forget it, or them); Moses and the Exodus (no evidence); the whole period of the Judges; the Monarchy, united or otherwise. In short, there is little to be said about Israel or Judah until the ninth century bce. In the end, a reconstruction and reconstitution of these ancient kingdoms is sharply etched and dramatically delineated once the debris of centuries (both ancient and modern) has been cleared. For those who like to be wakened in the morning with a spray of cold water, this book is highly recommended.
