  • (Heritage: Civilization and the Jews series, Part 1) Profiles the life and culture of the ancient Near East--Egypt, Canaan and Mesopotamia--and recalls the Exodus as a crucial event in Israel's self-conception and as a metaphor for all human freedom. Recounts the history of the Israelite people in the Biblical period, their transformation from a loose confederation of tribes into a united nation. Examines the birth of monotheism and its growth into the dynamic national religion and concludes with the exile of the people to Babylonia.
