A simple straightforward history of the Hebrews
By Randal J. Klocke on Aug 08, 2000
The Story of Israel is one of the textbooks for the Old Testament Survey course I teach at the community college. Because background information is essential to understanding the environment into which these people came (though VERY unpopular to students!), Dr. Tullock writes a brief but informative section on background. It is long enough to set the stage, but short enough to keep the students interested in the course. In an effort to keep the book short, Dr. Tullock does not cover everything, but does a great job overviewing and explaining the important spots. I am pleased with this book and plan to continue using it for the courses I teach.

I found the book to be a hard read on my iPad. Also, the author was a bit wordy. It was hard to follow the main events because the book got a bit too technical. However, it did what I needed for this class. I had hoped the price would have been cheaper but it wasn't too bad considering the $100+ paper edition.

Easy Easy Read

I had to use this textbook for a Hebrew History and Lit. class and it was a surprisingly easy read. Tullock does a great job painting a picture of what happened in history, and for those of us (me) who get easily confused when it comes to history (the whos, whats, and whens) I actually enjoyed reading it. It was like a novel.
Glad it came soon

Glad it came soon. There was highlighting in the book. But for the most part I'm happy with it.

I received great service and exactly what I had asked for. The book came even sooner than I had expected it would and it was very satisfied with my order .
