David Down has experienced the wonders of archaeological discoveries in Egypt, the Middle East and Israel for over 48 years. David shares his latest discoveries in a monthly archaeology journal called "Diggings," and a bi-monthly magazine called "Archaeological Diggings" produced and distributed in the United States.
The large book, which includes plenty of wonderful, colorful pictures and illustrations that match the content of the book, is not so much about the kings of Israel as it is about the leaders of Israel, starting with Noah and progressing all the way to Jesus. Down concludes with a quick chapter on the Gospels, but goes no further into the New Testament.
The books subtitle, Revealing the Bibles Archeological History, describes Downs writing most accurately. While a great majority of the book consists of retellings or summaries of the biblical accounts, Down provides archeological evidence to accompany several of these accounts. According to Down, the traditional timeline of Egypt puts the Bible at odds with archeology and history, but when readjusted, as many modern archeologists believe it should be, history suddenly lines up with the Bible perfectly. This can be no coincidence, and the evidence Down presents will intrigue readers.
Downs book makes for a great read for those who want to brush up on the Old Testament, as well as for those interested in archeological evidence for their faith, as All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).
