Summary

Did you know the ancient Canaanites invented the alphabet? 

The Bible references Canaan several times. For example, God commanded the Israelites to destroy the Canaanites following the Israeli flight from Egypt. 

However, the actual history of this civilization doesn’t quite match theological sources. For one thing, the Canaanite civilization consisted of a multitude of different peoples from the same ethnic group but different cultures. 

The region also had frequently redefined borders, and very few written records remain of Canaan, making it difficult for scholars to research. It can therefore be hard for people to find an easily understood and cohesive resource on this fascinating civilization. 

But that is about to change. In this new captivating history audiobook, you will discover the truth about the ancient Canaanites. 

The Ancient Canaanites: A Captivating Guide to the Canaanite Civilization That Dominated the Land of Canaan Before the Ancient Israelites includes: 

  • Revolutionary findings provided by modern archaeological detective techniques
  • A simple explanation of what Caanan is and where it's located
  • Fascinating discoveries of Canaanites artifacts
  • Remarkable insights into their government and social structure
  • Startling theories about the Bronze Age collapse
  • What there is to know about the culture of the Canaanites
  • The main conflict with Canaan that occurs early in the Bible and more shocking mentions in the Bible
  • Religion and beliefs
  • And much, much more!

Truthful, helpful

The Ancient Canaanites is a well-researched account of the Levant and its civilizations. Mr. Editors account is concise, and his review is well documented.

interesting topic

An excellent and comprehensive review of history about the ancient near east. Lands of Canaan are an interesting topic for everyone avid for knowing who those Canaanites were, what they believed, how they lived, and to what extent they were present in the culture of the world that follow their time. Five deserved stars.

Thanks to the Author

It included knowledge I had not heard of before but was established by the author. I was very excited about hearing a different point of view of this culture because in the Old Testament it appears they were only referred to in a negative light.

Overall great book

The great merit of this book is that the scholarly opinions presented are supported by enough data, but not too much. For all that it contains a very academic conversation.

Land of Canaan

The Author has explained, in detail, how we have all been misled by incorrect English translations of key terms in Joshua and elsewhere about the Amorites, Canaanites Amalekites and others, and the Conquest itself. The Conquest is NOT what you thought it was.

best book

I used to remember how fond I was with the Bible, but I couldn’t seem to find the time to study it closely. And now, I came across the book of Canaanites and it piqued my curiosity. This is the best book I’ve read about the subject and I’m looking forward to more of the author’s works.

Pretty amazed with this history audio book.

I’m pretty amazed with what I’ve just heard from this audiobook especially on the Canaanites artifacts. I immediately searched for them in the web. I came to love the Canaanites more after hearing this.

Fine job here.

I pretty think Captivating History did a fine and accurate job with this book considering the narrating time was only close to two hours. How they were known as, what their culture was, and their beliefs are just some of the interesting topics here in this book.

Captivating!

Listening to this brought peace in my heart. I’m not a religious person, but after I heard this, I want to know more about the Bible and more of the Canaanites history.
