As a believer in the Bible, I would like to reassure those who still would like to know what archaeology has to say, that they can read this book and not lose their faith. Not because the book doesn't challenge some of the beliefs readers of the Bible might have, but because faith and science measure and discuss different things. In my view, knowing what honest examination of history tells us can enrich what we know from the Bible. We also don't need to worry about what God has told his prophets because of what someone without faith has thought up. We can consider and examine everything without having to set our faith aside. Ignoring history out of fear is, I believe, more damaging and a poor witness of our faith.
This book covers the period from the time of Abraham through the destruction of the second temple by the Romans.Read more ›
I am not sure if there is a more recent edition (this one is from 1988), but if not this should be of great assistance to any Bible student, pastor or teacher. I think the only other "helps" book that a person would need as a companion book to this one is a Bible book of ancient maps, so that one can follow the path from the days of "Abraham to the Roman destruction of the Temple."
After another few hours, I was completely convinced that this book excels far and above the others in my personal library. Without hesitation, I absolutely recommend it to anyone who wants an historical-archaeological book.
