A fair and balanced appraisal of the comparison of history (i.e. excavations and discoveries, both physically, linguistically and culturally) against the contents of the Bible. The author and the translator both get credit for bringing to life a) the tension and excitement of the archeological “treasure” hunts for physically historical clues to the realities of life in the fertile crescent over the last 4,000 years; b) the exciting interpretations of both the realities and inferences uncovered by the archeological discoveries.

Though first published in 1955, it has been updated several times to take into account new archaeological discoveries. As such it remains the standard text on biblical investigation.

I liked this the best of the three biblical archaeology books I read this spring, even though it is the oldest.
However, Keller's procedure was to first produce the "good news" for believers in the historical accuracy of the Bible, and then undercut and dismiss it with some "bad news" derived form newer discoveries (or speculations).
This was especially noticeable in Chapter 8 on Joseph, and also Chapter 9 ( )
