This book challenges readers to consider whether archaeology explains the Bible.
Archaeology and the Bible examines new developments in archaeological finds in the Near East, particularly Palestine, that are related to the Bible. New methodologies, regional surveys and creative syntheses have all had an impact on traditional approaches to looking at these discoveries.
John Laughlin examines these new developments and discusses what they imply for biblical studies.
