Overview

Bible Archaeology: An Exploration of the History and Culture of Early Civilizations by Alfred Hoerth, John McRay

A complete overview of the history and findings of biblical archaeology, Bible Archaeology draws together the archaeological research into the principal sites in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Palestine, Persia, Anatolia, Greece, and Italy. Hoerth and McRay explore the histories, cultures, and social forces of these early civilizations, using full-color maps, photographs, and diagrams to walk you through the various archaeological digs.

This volume enables the reader to place the biblical narratives firmly in their historical context and cultural setting. The authoritative but accessible text brings familiar Bible characters brilliantly to life.
