"This engaging book highlights how archaeological artifacts and texts can be used to piece together a picture of the biblical past. The authors present information in a clear, balanced, and highly readable format that will have broad appeal. . . Can be used as a textbook as well as a supplement to guidebooks on visits to museums and archaeological sites."
William G. Dever, University of Arizona
"Lost Treasures of the Bible is ingenious, filling a need that both scholars and laypeople have probably felt quite often. You have a memory of an artifact illustrating life in biblical times, but what exactly was it? And how can you access it conveniently? In this veritable Larousse Arch?ologie, dozens and dozens of relevant artifacts are located in their present whereabouts, described, illustrated from original museum sources, and discussed with admirable balance for their relationship to both the Old and New Testaments. A great general reference work and fun to browse through as well!"
