Evidence for the Bible
Archaeology is like looking through a window into the past. By uncovering the remains of buildings and household bits and pieces of previous civilizations we learn who the people were and when and how they lived.
In Evidence for the Bible these once darkened windows are dusted and made clear, helping us discover archaeological finds that confirm or illustrate the biblical account. The authors’ purpose was to provide a reliable summary of the up-to-date positions in laymen’s terms, with added reference books suggested for deeper study into the various subjects addressed.
A burned and broken wall embedded with arrows and sling stones tells of a city taken by storm. A scribbled message on a piece of pottery reveals the urgency of the hour. Palace inscriptions and clay tablets in a royal archive reflect a well-organized central government. Inscribed silverware, jewelry, and household items illustrate the domestic life of the inhabitants.
Archaeology throws dramatic light on the biblical record.
The evidence will surprise and inform you as you turn over the soil of history from the pages of your Bible. The witness of the trowel authenticates and illuminates the people and events, lifting them from the pages of the Book and setting them in the context of time and place. Join us on an exciting journey with this evidence from the past.
