Warfare in the Old Testament helps bridge the gap between the modern reader and the world of the Old Testament by using textual and physical evidence to describe ancient military practices. Seevers paints realistic picture of how Israel and the surrounding nations did battle, adding depth and impact to the relevant biblical accounts. Full of illustrations, this full-color volume explores the archaeological evidence and early writings that shed light on biblical warfare between Israel and its neighbors: Egypt, Philistia, Assyria, Babylon, and Persia. Of special interest are his treatments of the role that religion played in these ancient warfare practices.

About the Author:

Boyd Seevers (PhD, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) is an expert on ancient warfare and has participated in numerous archaeological excavations in Israel. He lived in Israel for eight years, during which time he was a visiting professor at Jerusalem University College. He is currently professor of Old Testament Studies at University of Northwestern-St Paul, where he was named teacher of the year in 2006 and 2012.

Review:

“The introductory historical narrative at the beginning of each part of the book provides an accessible and engaging introduction into the story, weapons, and tactics of the armies of Israel, Egypt, Philistia, Assyria, Babylon, and Persia. Moving beyond mere data, helpful graphics and thoughtful insights draw the reader into the world of ancient warriors and armies!” (Carl Rasmussen Jerusalem University College 2013-11-01)

"Dr. Seevers understands warfare and the humanity of those who partake in it. He connects biblical text, geography, archaeological evidence, and historical documentation in a manner that brings the Old Testament to life―vibrantly. Soldier and civilian alike stand to benefit from reading this book. " (Joshua Draveling, Sergeant United States Marine Corps 2013-11-01)
