Book Description

March 1, 2009 0800623576 978-0800623579 1
A state-of-the-art introduction to the archaeological exploration of Syria-Palestine from ancient times to current excavations, Stones and Stories introduces students to the history and methods of "biblical archaeology." By correlating cultural patterns in different archaeological eras with cultural patterns in the biblical narratives, Benjamin describes the assumptions and methods that have guided both scholars and amateurs the faithful, the skeptical, and the curious.

Lavishly illustrated, Stones and Stories is simultaneously an accessible introduction to archaeological method and an overview of what archaeology has shown us regarding the worlds of the Bible.

The Bible is not to be disregarded as a source for history, even for non-believers. "Stones and Stories: An Introduction to Archaeology and the Bible" discusses how archeologists have used the stories within the Bible to gain a greater and more complete understanding of human history. With plenty of photos and discussions of artifacts as well as a history of archeology in the Middle and Near Easts, "Stones and Stories" is of strong suggestion for any with a professional or amateur interest in archeology.
