Since the 1970s, archaeologists have made great strides in recovering the lost world of the Old Testament. Experts understanding of ancient Israel and its neighbours, and Bible tales, have been changed by these discoveries. This book looks at how the Bible came into existence. The authors assert that Abraham, Isaac and jacob never existed, David and Soloman were merely Chieftans and not kings and the Exodus never happened. They claim, through archaeological evidence, that the Bible was created by the people from the southern nation of Judah, in a last ditch attempt to keep their faith alive.
