Editorial Reviews

Review

Jodi Magness, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
"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!"

This book is a wealth of information on Biblical archaeological finds in museums today. I only wish there were more pictures. If you are an evangelical conservative like I am and like to keep up with what is happening in the Biblical archaeological world this book is a great resource. We have a small museum in our church with over 150 artifacts so it's great to have this on hand for questions that come up. The only other problem I have is the liberal slant on the "Biblical Significance" sections. But discernment is always needed when studying about Biblical subjects.

Extremely helpful overview of archaeological discoveries, their significance, present location in museum, etc. Agree with another reviewer that more pictures, esp. in color, would greatly enhance the book.

I enjoyed this book very much.There are many articles in the popular literature which convey doubts as to what really happened in the Biblical books. This book shows scientific objectivity as to what objects are available to clarify some historical questions. Since the objects are already displayed in museums there is no ambivalence as to their authenticity.The language is clear and the tabular forms regarding the objects are wonderfully visual and clear.You see immediately the provenance, the age even the error possible in the age determination. It is scientifically a delight to read such a logical text. The sections on the Biblical connection are realistic. when this is uncertain the author does not mince words but says so. I can highly recommend this book to laypersons, any curious person interested in Biblical studies or the active archaeologist.
