The Bible is a touchstone of religious belief, literary accomplishment, morality, and history unlike any other. Biblical interpretations have changed over the millennia, but the past 100 years have witnessed some of the most important transformations in our perspective, and no recent influence has been greater than archaeology.

What Archaeology Tells Us About the Bible. In the mid-20th century, the unearthing of the Dead Sea Scrolls-to cite just one of many modern finds-deepened our understanding of the Biblical world, its peoples, and their beliefs. Since then, new evidence has appeared-the Tel Dan inscription, the Merneptah Stele, and the Gabriel Revelation-with each revelation providing richer insights into the scriptural narrative and the way these stories were written and handed down, confirming the details of historical events and personages, or clarifying the meaning and chronology of biblical ideas.

NEW, Unread, & Perfect, a Hardcover Book with a Perfect Dust Jacket ... what ARCHAEOLOGY Tells Us about the BIBLE
  • As a few reviewers have pointed out, this book contains some major factual and errors, some of which were corrected in its second printing. I wonder if these were made because of inadequate proofreading by the authors or is partly due to problems with the publisher, National Geographic. Unfortunately, dealers of used copies do not usually give enough information to potential buyers.

    As the cover indicates and the contents reveals, the stress of this work on the Hebrew Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls is their being preludes to, and forecasters of, Jesus and Christianity. I believe the work's title should have reflected this. Moreover, ancient Judaism and ancient Jewish society are not looked upon very accuratey or favorably, and seem more in tune with works written several decades ago. Nevertheless, despite these drawbacks it is an interesting read with plenty of engaging, large, color photos. Those seeking more accuracy should look elsewhere, such as the works of other Christian scholars like Kitchen, Dever, and Graves.

  • This is a great book with large photos on heavy paper. The print is a nice readable size and the text is easy to read. Seeing the locations and inscriptions deciphered is an interesting glimpse of these early days and the idolatry that is always condemned in the Bible during these times. It also gives credence to the historical accuracy of the Bible, written by men, inspired by God.

  • This book provides a very informative look of the preaching of the gospel. I enjoyed it very much

  • It looks really good. Beautiful illustrations. Very inviting to look at. Have been too busy yet to really spend time with it.

  • A treasure to have in ones library. Marvelous pictures too. Clear to the point honest text with real scholarship behind it.

  • The photo on page 157 is not the "Dome of the Rock" as labeled, but is actually the Al-Aqsa Mosque (the Dome of the Rock is the gold colored dome in the center of the temple mount). Also, the Temple Mount is not "southeast" per page 156, but northeast; the Goliath inscription on page 153 is not "prior" but after, etc.

    The photos in the book are good, and the text is readable, but the book needs editing (e.g. see prior reviewers comments about upside down photos).

    If technical mistakes are corrected, it's a good idea. Sorry, but please try again.

  • I love this book. Not only does it make a lovely coffee table book - it is extremely interesting to read. Anything about Biblical archaeology is of interest to me and this is the focus of The Letter and the Scroll. If all things Biblical interest you or just archaeology in general - you'll love this book. It makes a lovely gift for anyone with interests in this area and displays beautifully.

  • Excellent put together Pictures say a thousand words the information made for easy reading as you steped back in time
