For more than two hundred years controversy has raged over the reliability of the Old Testament. Questions about the factuality of its colorful stories of heroes, villains, and kings, for example, have led many critics to see the entire Hebrew Bible as little more than pious fiction. In this fascinating book, noted ancient historian K. A. Kitchen takes strong issue with today's "revisionist" critics and offers a firm foundation for the historicity of the biblical texts. In a detailed, comprehensive, and entertaining manner, Kitchen draws on an unprecedented range of historical data from the ancient Near East -- the Bible's own world -- and uses it to soundly reassess both the biblical record and the critics who condemn it. Working back from the latest periods (for which hard evidence is readily available) to the remotest times, Kitchen systematically shows up the many failures of favored arguments against the Bible and marshals pertinent permanent evidence from antiquity's inscriptions and artifacts to demonstrate the basic honesty of the Old Testament writers.  Enhanced with numerous tables, figures, and maps, On the Reliability of the Old Testament is a must-read for anyone interested in the question of biblical truth.… (mer)

This book is a polemic: it's proposition is that the documents of the Hebrew Bible properly reflect the times they purport to be writing about. The author proceeds to amass textual, archaeological and other evidence to support his thesis in detail. It is also a polemic because the author has specific opponents in mind and he curmudgeonly attacks their persons and not just their ideas. That is the least attractive part of the book, but it is testimony to the author's passion.



Whether or not you agree with Kitchen's faith, epistemology, archaeology or conclusions, I don't believe anyone can deny that the book -- especially the footnotes! -- is a masterful key to the primary and secondary literature on the Ancient Near East, especially as they relate to understanding the Bible in its ANE context. Speaking as a specialist in this area, I know of no better recent synthesis and summary of our current knowledge. A marvelous book, required reading for all interested in the ANE.



Oh, yes. I personally agree with Kitchen's polemics.
