For the past 200 years archaeological work has provided new information that allows us to peer into the past and open chapters of human history that have not been read for centuries, or even millennia. The archaeological remains from the Ancient Near East in particular can produce valuable information that improves our understanding of the Bible. In The Archaeology of the Bible James K. Hoffmeier provides the reader with an incisive account of archaeology's role in shaping our understanding of the biblical texts.


Following an overview of archaeological techniques and usage in biblical interpretation, the author takes us through the Old and New Testaments and examines archaeological evidence that underpins certain biblical themes and narratives. Fundamental issues addressed throughout include how archaeological discoveries relate to biblical accounts and the compatibility of using scientific disciplines to prove or disprove a religious book such as the Bible.Interspersed with boxed features that provide more detail on geographical settings, cultural practices and biblical narratives, The Archaeology of the Bible is an ideal introduction to the societies and events of the Ancient Near East and how they affect our interpretation of the Bible.
