    This book is largely an account of archaelogical findings which test (and corroborate) the accuracy of biblical accounts, mostly in the Old Testament era, of historical events. It has the merit of having been written by a journalist instead of an academic, thereby making it very readable. It is well-researched. The author does not overstate the results and does not attempt to hide points of controversy. One note of criticism concerns the revised edition, which the author did not do. The added chapter (1980) on the Shroud of Turin, which the publisher breathlessly announces as showing that the way is open to authenticating the relic as the true burial cloth of Jesus, can mislead the unwary reader. In 1988, the Shroud was tested (and results independently verified) by the method originally noted by the author (carbon 14 dating) and found to have originated no earlier than 1260 C.E. The relic is, therefore, a fake. Recent attempts to duplicate its appearance using materials and techniques available to a medieval artisan have shown promise. Those who continue to defend the Shroud's authenticity are left mostly flailing. This to one side, even advanced students of the Bible will find the material stimulating and informative. Highly recommended.
