The Lost World of the Israelite Conquest

The Lost World of the Israelite Conquest

Holy warfare is the festering wound on the conscience of
Bible-believing Christians. Of all the problems the Old Testament poses for our
modern age, this is the one we want to avoid in mixed company.

But do the so-called holy war texts of the Old Testament portray a
divinely inspired genocide? Did Israel slaughter Canaanites at God's
command? Were they enforcing divine retribution on an unholy people? These
texts shock us. And we turn the page. But have we rightly understood them?

In The Lost World of the Israelite Conquest, John Walton and J. Harvey
Walton take us on an archaeological dig, excavating the layers of translation
and interpretation that over time have encrusted these texts and our
perceptions. What happens when we take new approaches, frame new questions?
When we weigh again their language and rhetoric? Were the Canaanites punished
for sinning against the covenanting God? Does the Hebrew word herem mean
devote to destruction"? How are the Canaanites portrayed and why? " And what happens when we backlight these texts with their ancient context?

The Lost World of the Israelite Conquest keenly recalibrates our
perception and reframes our questions. While not attempting to provide all the
answers, it offers surprising new insights and clears the ground for further
