I certainly enjoyed it.

The Canaanites (Israel) were a relatively disorganized bunch who fought among themselves as much as they did others. Therefore, Egypt had a very large say in the politics of Canaan. If you want to read a great book and discover who the Canaanites were and some of their history, I suggest you purchase this book.

Decent book if you want a quick overview

The author tells the story of Israel's conquest of the land of Canaan, but what do you know about the Canaanites? The Book
is only one source among many used to discover who these people were. This book reveals many things about them I did
not realize.

What I liked about this book is the proof given about the ancient Israelitess starting !!! Not the lies taught by the elites who know that civilization began with Africa!

Only referred to in a negative light.

Book was easy listening. I like history and it was direct and to the point. It contained information I had heard of before and I am following him already, indeed a verified person. I was very interested in hearing a different point of view of this history because in the Old Testament it seems they were only referred to in a negative light.

I am pleasantly surprised.

This is a very good and informative book about the old Israel. As most people think, The Ancient Israel were a one people. However the Israelites were a collection of tribes that occupied The Levant area. (The Ancient Israel) Tells the colorful story of how they survived.

A history I was't aware.

Everyone's heard of the Ancient Israel Canaanites thanks to the Captivating History author team, but I'm sure only a few know much if anything about them. This helped fill in all the blanks I had.

Helps in understanding this era in the Near East.

3 hrs and 19 mins, concise, but informative for one whose primary interest is events going on in other parts of Eurasia at the time.

It is a very good book.

This is a very informative about history of Israel, brief history which is helpful in the study of the Bible. Highly recommend it. Wish it had been a little deeper.
