Summary "The book relates individual episodes from the saga of Israel instead of narrating a formal, conventional history up to the present day. Each section deals with a different aspect of this journey through the decades. The subjects do not cover old ground and are intentionally revelatory as they relate the history of Israel in a vivid, engaging way"-- Provided by publisher
