"A sober, disciplined, well-reasoned response to the so-called minimalists who have dominated recent discussion of the history of ancient Israel. A Biblical History correctly insists that the 'historical reliability' off ancient texts largely depends on which testimonies to trust. The consequence is that the skepticism that his long dominated Old Testament discussion can no longer claim a privileged position – either epistemologically or morally – but in fact is an ideological advocacy. This book will need to be taken seriously and will be welcomed by all those who engage such issues of the historicity of the biblical text." – Walter Brueggemann, William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary
"Although not everyone will agree with this 'maximalist' history of ancient Israel, I cannot imagine a more honest, more comprehensive, better documented effort from a conservative perspective. For more than a decade now, radical revisionists have claimed that a history of ancient of biblical Israel can no longer be written and that historians can be either critical or confessional, but not both. A Biblical History proves the revisionist wrong on both counts." – William G. Dever, Professor Emeritus of Near Eastern Archaeology and Anthropology, University of Arizona
