Biblical Archaeology: Vol. 2
Famous Discoveries That Support the Reliability of the Bible
Dr. David Elton Graves
Thousands of artifacts have been discovered that relate to the Bible, but few of them make the news headlines. Revisionist scholars often seek to undermine and downplay the relevance of many of the discoveries, believing that Sodom never existed, the Exodus never happened, Jericho never fell to the Israelites, and David was never a great king. Volume one presented the recent finds from the last 20 years, while this work also challenges the minimalist views by bringing together many of the famous discoveries from the last 100 years highlighting the notable finds that are relevant to the claims of the Bible. Experienced archaeologist David Graves has again assembled a helpful collection of discoveries that will take you on a journey to confirm the historicity of the biblical events and people of the past. Graves will explore the full range of over 160 famous archaeological discoveries, from pottery, tablets, inscriptions, seals, ossuaries, through to coins, manuscripts, and other artifacts.
This insightful book will:
* Illustrate archaeological finds with more than 160 pertinent photographs
* Provide numerous detailed maps, and carefully crafted charts
* Include a glossary defining technical archaeological terms
* Provide extensive footnotes and bibliography for future study
* Include a helpful subject and important author index
This invaluable resource provides an interesting and informative understanding of the cultural and historical background of the Bible illustrated from archaeology. This is an accessible resource intended for laypeople who want to know more about archaeology and the Bible, whether in seminary courses, college classrooms, church groups or personal study.
