Product Description

Lobbying for a reformating of archaeological findings to fit into a strict biblical chronology, short chapters look at Egypt, Hittites, Ur, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Petra, The Phoenicians, The Dead Sea Scrolls, and Israel. Written by Australian missionary David Down, short excerpts of his travels are included as well. Full-color pages with photographs of the sites and artifacts; 96 pages with glossary & index; hardcover.

This leveled book can be used in three ways: The yellow area features the basics to be read by everyone, and is written at a 5th-6th grade level; the grayish area is for 7th & 8th grades, and the text on white background is for 9th-11th grade.

If the Bible is true, shouldn’t archaeologists find some evidence of it? In The Archaeology Book, David Down shares some of that evidence in a multi-level book for students from grade five through adulthood.

The cover is attractive enough for the book to be a coffee table book. Filled with interesting and lovely photographs and drawings, The Archaeology Book has chapters on what an archaeologist does, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and nine biblical cultures from Egypt to Persia.

Down divides the book into yellow sections for fifth and sixth grades, gray sections for seventh and eighth grade, and white sections for older levels. Also, many pages have a beige section which carries a journal entry from one of Down’s archaeological digs. This colorful design gives the pages a crazy-quilt look but allows students to read at their level. The text is very readable, informative, and interesting, unlike your average history or science textbook. The journal entries give it a personal touch.

Down takes a strong biblical position and explains seeming discrepancies between some archaeological interpretations and the Bible, as one would expect from Master Books. One thing that I deeply appreciated was his maintaining the use of B.C. and A.D. in his dating rather than the updated secularized versions of B.C.E. and C.E.

This does not look much like a textbook—too colorful, too interesting—but each chapter begins with a box containing questions asking who, what, where, when, and why for that chapter. You can also download a free study guide at www.masterbooks.org to accompany the book. It includes words to remember, questions, and activities, such as making an Egyptian brick or tracing your family tree.

I enjoyed reading the book, and my fourth grader nabbed it when I wasn’t looking and read all of the journal entries before I found out what had happened to the book. She wants to look at it more, which will be great.

This enjoyable, fascinating book belongs in homes, home schools, church schools, and libraries. It is a good science and history book but is also interesting reading. I could see it being used as part of a Sunday school or youth group Bible study on the various biblical cultures. Highly recommended. Debbie Wilson, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
