Inaccuracies and Misprounciations Abound

Very easy research could have made this book accurate. Very simple research could have helped the narrator with correct pronunciations. There are too many errors about history where I'm well studied, for me to trust the information on areas with which I'm less familiar. So sad to have spent the money and time on this book.

worst narrator

This guy couldn't mispronounce more words if he tried. I'm not talking crazy weird biblical names, I'm talking normal 10th grade vocab. It's super annoying!!!

Ignoramus narrator

Mr Patton has absolutely no comprehension of pronunciation. Hearing “Levant” as “leavent” over and over again, along with other garbling of Greek and Hebrew names is too much.

good information terrible pronounciation

it almost seems purposeful given the insanely high number of misspronountiations words. if you can get past that, it's a good summary of the history of ancient Israel and Judah

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.

Facts about Israel.

The author knew his subject and presented it in a logical manner which was easy to follow. He presented the facts without a flowery dissertation. A good, easy read.

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.
