    This book would be better known andcontroversial if it was not so dry in its presentation Basically it says that there is no archaeological evidence to support the Biblical story of the birth of the Jewish faith which, of course, knocks the pins out from under Christianity and Islam as well, since all three great world religions essentially look to the Old Testament and believe in the same God Whether one believes or disbelieves the premise, this is fascinating stuff for anyone interest This book would be better known andcontroversial if it was not so dry in its presentation Basically it says that there is no archaeological evidence to support the Biblical story of the birth of the Jewish faith which, of course, kno...

    When reading the Bible, you re not engaging in an activity normal people do with their normal books The Bible isn t normal It s an enigma It s something out of place in our time, out of context Produced in a literary world unlike our own, it s not strictly history and not strictly fiction The challenge of understanding which is which, or when and why it was written is pretty well insurmountable with the helping hand of modern archaeology, but a damned nightmare without it Archaeologist When reading the Bible, you re not engaging in an activity normal people do with their normal books The Bible isn t normal It s an enigma It s something out of place in our time, out of context Produced in a literary world unlike our own, it s not strictly history and not strictly fiction The challenge of understanding which is which, or when and why it was written is pretty well insurmountable with the helping hand of modern archaeology, but a damned nightmare without it Archaeologists Israel Finkelstein and Neil Silberman have put their heads together to provide the common man a survey of recent findings on the historic...

    This was a really smooth read beautifully and concisely written I ve been a fan for some years of Werner Keller s The Bible as History, and it still has a lot of good material on the archaeology of the Bible But Finkelstein and Silberman take the scholarship into the 21st century A tremendous amount of archaeology has been done in Israel since Keller s book was written 1960s and last revised early 1980s This allows Finkelstein and Silberman to overturn many of Keller s conclusions, and This was a really smooth read beautifully and concisely written I ve been a fan for some years of Werner Keller s The Bible as History, and it still has a lot of good material on the archaeology of the Bible But Finkelstein and Silberman take the scholarship into the 21st century A tremendous amount of archaeology has bee...
