The second period of Hebrew history, with which this volume deals, was Israel’s heroic age—when physical strength, courage, and patriotism were the prominent virtues, but when deeper spiritual and ethical qualities were only partially developed. It was during this period that the Hebrews most resembled their neighbors in character and faith. This volume, which follows the model of the preceding one, follows the history through the division of the kingdom. It commences with the story of the crossing of the Jordan, adding to it—as with other stories—an explanatory discussion. Contents include:

  • The Settlement and Conquest of Canaan
  • The Founding of the Hebrew Kingdom
  • The Decline of Saul and the Rise of David
  • The Political Events of David’s Reign
  • The Splendors of Solomon’s Reign

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.

Praise for the Print Edition
