The key difference from other theological works is the way that the real historical cultures and issues of the Old Testament are brought to life with cutting edge insight that explains what people were actually living through, and what obscure references in the Old Testament actually mean.
This kind of knowledge can only be provided by someone who is actively involved in archaeology, and familiar with the real findings and latest discoveries from digs across the Levant.
I found the book immensely helpful, as it did not only outline different arguments from scholars, but provided the evidence to support views, and engaged directly with debates relating to Carbon dating, the resting place of Noah's ark, the creation narrative, ancient legal systems, and a myriad of other topics.
This work is suitable for church ministers and Christians who need to provide facts for why they believe in the Bible, students of theology and the Bible, and would be an excellent assisting aid to lecturers and teachers of the Bible in educational institutions.
