Product description

Drawing on many years of research and experience, James K. Hoffmeier takes the reader on a fascinating journey around the archaeological remains of the Ancient Near East. He provides the reader with a review of Bible history and examines the role of archaeology in understanding the biblical text. Beginning with Genesis and the origins of the world, "The Archaeology of the Bible" follows the Bible narrative right through to the early churches of Revelation. The book is divided into three sections and is interspersed with stories from the author's own experience as an archaeologist, which bring the thrill of archaeological discovery vividly to life. Beautifully illustrated with photographs, charts, maps, diagrams and illustrations of sites, "The Archaeology of the Bible" is a book for anyone interested in learning more about the societies and events of the Ancient Near East and how they affect our understanding of the Bible.
