Craig Evans is a talented scholar and skillful author, explaining how the objections of biblical skeptics have been overblown, and how archaeology fully agrees with the biblical narrative.

I liked the detail of the literary and archeology findings discussed in this book. It will be a good reference during travel to Isreal.

This is a well-written and, in general, quite convincing book. The author clearly has the goal of using archeological information to support the accuracy of the gospels, but he doesn't stretch the facts excessively in order to accomplish his purpose. There is a lot of quite interesting information in this book so I strongly recommend it.

This is just a really great book, the author very knowledgable. The way he describes and defines people and locations, it feels like you were there such a long time ago. Not as dry reading as I thought it might be.

For anyone who is interested in the times and places in which Jesus and his disciples lived. There is no religious OR anti-religious agenda here, just a straightforward look at what archaeology can tell us about Bible times. It is written with academic rigor, but not in jargon; it is intended for nonarchaeologists and students. Excellent resource!

I cannot begin to explain how much I enjoyed and appreciated this book. Rather than arguing with those who would denigrate the historical Jesus and reduce him to a mischevious country bumpkin, Evans simply refutes the various arguments given by people like the Jesus Seminar by outlining what archaeology says about the time of Jesus. I especially appreciated the photos.
