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.
