This book, termed "an authoritative work" (Cyril J. Barber, "The Minister's Library"), is a prominent example of how the science of archaeology has performed a revolutionary ministry in clarifying vast sections of biblical history. Especially in Old Testament backgrounds, a flood of light has been shed upon the ancient world in which Israel lived. In this work Unger clarifies one of the most misunderstood epochs of Old Testament history: the general period from 900 B.C., during which the Aramaeans rose to power in Damascus, until 732 B.C., when the city-state of Damascus fell to Assyria. It comprises another thrilling story of archaeological illumination of Bible history. With a happy faculty for popularization, Unger has, according to Kenneth L. Barker's introduction, produced a "work of careful scholarship," "thoroughly documented." All Christians can read this book with interest as well as profit.
