Product Description

The biblical Exodus and Conquest stories are dramatic and memorable, but are they "historical" in the modern sense? Is corroborative evidence available? Do these narratives about ancient Israel matter in the 21st century? Renowned archaeologist Dever seeks to answer these questions via a synthesis of biblical text and external data uncovered in archaeology. Drawing on thirty years of archaeological fieldwork in the Near East, Dever amasses a wide range of hard evidence for his own compelling view of the development of Israelite history. Well written, scholarly, and accessible. Includes over fifty photographs, diagrams, and maps that help bring the archaeological record to life. 268 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.
