"Neev & Emery have put together their considerable and extensive knowledge of the geological and environmental history of the Dead Sea region as background information that may help in understanding more about the fates of Sodom, Gomorrah and Jericho. . . .useful source material for anyone interested in understanding more about these events." --Geological Magazine
"I like this book because it is the best summary available in print of the interrelation among geology, climate, archeology, and writings, including biblical writings, for this special geographic region....Anybody who is interested in these must keep this book on his bookshelf."--Earth Science History
