Rarely does anyone manage to credibly combine Ancient Near Eastern studies and Classical studies, but Cline balances well between the two in his archaeological research and many publications. As this thoughtful and well-written book FROM EDEN TO EXILE shows, Cline has also managed something even rarer: to sensibly communicate biblical problems without taking sides in religious controversy or demeaning others' ideas. The topography and texts are carefully allowed to speak for themselves. Enormously fascinating topics like the location of Eden and where Noah's Ark went - old favorites that have been mystifying for millennia and will continue to do so - will have Cline's readers note how fair he is to divergent opinions. Very refreshing to find a scholar with a such a readable voice.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
