Biblical historians saw history through the eyes of faith; their writings reflect and reveal their beliefs. Today's historian has to recognize this. Yet, while the historical books of the Bible may not be read as `pure' history they do undoubtedly reflect the events of their times. This far-reaching enquiry show how large parts of the Old Testament were inspired by the exile in Babylon, and how without the existence of the Roman Empire an obscure Jewish sect could never have developed into the dominating religion of the Western world. Now available in paperback.

Book Description British Museum Publications, London England, 1990. Cloth. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. Hardback. Price clipped to D/J. The author's masterly survey of two hundred years of biblical criticism shows that the biblical writers were not concerned with history or natural phenomena for their own sake, but with the community of Israel or with the church of Christ. While the historical books of the Bible may not, therefore, be read as 'pure' history, they were undoubtedly rooted in the events of their times. The author shows how large parts of the Old Testament were inspired by the exile to Babylon, and how without the existence of the Roman Empire an obscure Jewish sect could never have developed into the dominating religion of the Western world. The complex relationship between faith and evidence and between history and faith is the theme of this far-reaching and authoritiative work. Wth 2 maps and 3 tables. 272 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions etc.) Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
