Archaeology of the Bible

Published by National Geographic
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

Chapters, beginning with the dawn of human civilization and ending with present day and the future of archaeology, chronicle hundreds of sites and artefacts found in Sumer, Babylon, the Second Temple, along the route of the Exodus, and in many other regions across the Middle East. Timelines bridge hundreds o years and several empires, maps give readers a visual sense of location, while hundreds of photos and illustrations of rare artefacts and ancient places add to the visual splendour. It concludes with details of what remains to be found and the evolving dynamic of biblical faith in an increasingly scientific world in which archaeologists make daily breakthroughs.
