Couverture
Scepter Publishers, 2003 - 630 pages
"The historical books of the Old Testament recount the fortunes of the people of Israel from the conquest of the promised land onwards. The First Book of Chronicles gives the background of the chosen people of God and the families that made up the twelve tribes, and records the career of David. Second Chronicles begins with Solomon in all his glory and ends with Israel's ignominious deportation to Babylon. Ezra-Nehemiah records the epic rebuilding of Jerusalem and its temple after the seventy-year Babylonian exile. The final books, Maccabees, give vivid accounts of the Jewish experience at a time when Greek successors of Alexander the Great sought to stamp out all traces of the religion of Moses and replace it with a cosmopolitan pagan ethic." --Book Jacket.
