:For many today, history holds little application to modern existence, and so many are biblically and historically uninformed. Archaeology-the systematic study of the material remains of human behavior in the past-provides a helpful corrective on these two fronts. The Bible can be understood without the use of outside sources and does not need to be proved. Yet archaeologist and professor John Currid shows how his field of study plays its part in restoring our understanding of ancient life and events. He gives background on the geography of the land of the Bible and a history of its excavation; describes archaeological sites throughout the land; and introduces discoveries connected to agriculture, architecture, ceramics, burial practices, and more. This introduction can be used by students as well as anyone interested in deepening their knowledge of the land of the Bible and the insights archaeology gives us on Scripture.
Dr. John Currid (Ph.D., Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago) is Carl McMurray Professor of Old Testament at the Charlotte campus of the Reformed Theological Seminary. A graduate in Syro-Palestinian Archaeology, he has extensive archaeological field experience. He was the Director of the Agricultural Project at Tel Halif, Israel; Field Archaeologist of the UNESCO Project at the excavation of Carthage, Tunisia; and staff archaeologist at Tell el-Hesi and Bethsaida, both in Israel.
He has written Genesis vols 1 and 2; Exodus vols 1 and 2; Leviticus and Numbers (Evangelical Press Study Commentary Series), and serves as editor for that series. He has also written two books in the discipline of archaeology Doing Archaeology in the Land of the Bible (Bakerbooks) and Ancient Egypt and the Old Testament (Bakerbooks), and has recently published another book about suffering Why Do I Suffer?: Suffering and the Sovereignty of God (Christian Focus Publications).
