In this enduring classic, Alfred Edersheim explores the broad sweep of Old Testament history. He brings to his work his immense learning and familiarity with Judaism, as well as his love for Scripture and his desire for every Christian to know and understand the story of God's redemptive work in history.

This new edition of Edersheim's classic features the following improvements:

- Entirely reset in a modern and easy-to-read typeface
- Complete and unabridged in one volume
- Arabic numbers replace roman numerals
- New maps to provide for richer understanding

"In writing it "[Bible History: Old Testament]" I have primarily had in view those who teach and those who learn, whether in the school or in the family. But my scope has also been wider. I have wished to furnish, what may be useful for reading in the family, --what indeed may, in some measure, serve the place of a popular exposition of the sacred history. More than this, I hope it may likewise prove a book to put in the hands of students, to show them what the Bible really teaches."
--Alfred Edersheim

Review: Old Testament Bible History, Updated Edition

User Review  - Ron Thomas -

A good book and one that I can easily recommend. In 1992 I read the book while in S. Arabia; it was there that I recognized its value. It is not a critical work, but very useful. Read full review
