This 2001 Chuen King Lectures that are presented in this volume offer you a brief but rewarding journey through the many centuries of the early "biblical" past, a past laboriously recreated and revitalized by generations of archaeologists, historians, and biblical scholars. In this tripartite monograph, Jack M. Sasson revisits diverse issues associated with the study of Ancient Israel: The art of history-writing as practiced by the Hebrews, the reconstruction of Israel's history in recent research, and the debates on the origin and early development of Hebrew monotheism. At the conclusion of each essay is a critical response from three biblical scholars currently active in the Hong Kong area: Archie C. C. Lee, Craig Y. S. Ho and Fook Kong Wong.

Resting upon the author's profound knowledge of ancient Near Eastern languages, literature, and practices, this volume will serve as a helpful, up-to-date, and accessible exploration of crucial themes in biblical research to anyone interested in the historical, spiritual, and cultural contexts of Israel within their ancient Near Eastern contexts.
