2nd Reprint. [First: 1938] Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The book begins with a general survey of the geography of Palestine and the setting of the country in the Ancient World of the Near East. It then follows the history behind the Bible narratives from the earliest times to the final dispersion of the Jews in A.D. 135, and concludes with an account of the subsequent history of the country and the present position there. Four years spent in Egypt and Palestine have enabled the writer to portray vividly the setting of the story, and have given him first-hand knowledge both of recent archaeological discoveries and of the modern situation. The book is intended to be of use not only to teachers and students, but to the increasing number of people who wish to know something of the light modern research throws on the Bible.”
