MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations

"From the 'picnic-type excavations' of early digs to the sophisticated archaeological methods of today, the artifacts recovered from Bible lands have revealed a new perspective for understanding biblical text. Here, in the only book of its kind, all the resulting information has been gathered and arranged in order, from Genesis to Revelation, by chapter and verse. Interspersed among these pages are photographs of the ruins, inscriptions, and biblical sites that give a tangible and immediate sense to the peoples, culture, and places of sacred history. As a succinct and valuable summary of archaeological discoveries to date, this volume records findings which have helped scholars understand biblical times more accurately. It explains documents which have given an otherwise unattainable clarity to antique customs and thought, and it deciphers the meaning of many passages whose interpretation has been obscured or stymied by the lack of similar keys. Originally published in Spanish, 'Archaeological Commentary on the Bible' is here translated into English, adapted and updated to make the information as accurate and timely as possible."--Amazon.com.… (more)
