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!

Inaccurate

White people narrative. And the Canaanites continued to exist after the establishment and destruction of Israel and Judea. The title itself is wrong. I couldn’t listen to the whole thing. Misrepresentation. And it’s now agreed that the Hyksos didn’t bring the chariot to Egypt. It’s also now agreed that Megiddo had no intention of reveling or attacking Egypt. Etc etc etc

Everything was as expected

you surprise, and on a new path. A deeply engrossing book, as I found it difficult to put it down. I recommend this series highly as the author has credibility and thoughtfulness.

Nice book

The book makes it clear that the true history and origins of the Israelite people and their religion are still open for debate.

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.

Nice

Very enlightening. Short but I liked that. I required to have the broad picture of the Canaanites and this book is great for that purpose.
