Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1064-1065 Bible Archaeology

Not all of our Book & The Spade listeners are on the same page. Biblical Archaeology can be a complicated subject. But it’s an important subject. There are a variety of books about Biblical Archaeology and one of the best introductions to the subject may be the new book by retired Wheaton College archaeology professors Al Hoerth and John McRay. It’s called Bible Archaeology, An Exploration of the History and Culture of Early Civilizations, published by Baker Books. It is beautifully illustrated and written from an archaeological perspective, rather than a Biblical perspective.

I’ve bumped into Al Hoerth once or twice in the Holyland when our visits coincided. This is his first time as a guest on THE BOOK & THE SPADE.
