Product Description

Ancient artifacts and the Bible illuminate each other in various ways, but it can be difficult to understand how this process works and how archaeological discoveries should be interpreted. In this book, Matthieu Richelle provides a concise, up-to-date introduction to the relationship between archaeology and the Old and New Testament Scriptures. He shows how historic physical artifacts and the biblical texts illuminate one another—creating a fascinating "dialogue" that sheds light on the meaning of both.  What emerges is a rich and balanced picture that enlivens our understanding of the Bible’s message, increases our appreciation for the historical and cultural contexts in which it was written, and helps us be realistic about the limits of our knowledge. This work is revised and updated from the original French translation.

Endorsement

“In an age of ever-increasing specialization, Matthieu Richelle exhibits his masterful control over both the biblical text and the material culture. Moreover, he demonstrates the value of studying the Bible and archaeology together, in order to reveal the most that we can learn about ancient Israel and its most precious legacy, the literary productions that eventually emerged as the books of the Bible.”

—Gary A. Rendsburg, Blanche and Irving Laurie Professor of Jewish History, Rutgers University

 

“Timely. Judicious. Lucid. A rising star in French biblical scholarship offers an excellent, up-to-date teaching book on the nature of archaeology, the evidence with which it works, and the kinds of insights it can provide biblical scholars. Richelle's welcome, moderate approach is exemplified in his superb survey and evaluation of contemporary positions surrounding the kingdom of David and Solomon.”

—David M. Carr, Professor of Old Testament, Union Theological Seminary
