#1306 – The Future of Biblical Archaeology +10 with prof. James Hoffmeier
Ten years ago a bunch of archaeologists gathered in suburban Chicago for a conference on The Future of Biblical Archaeology. At that time, the Minimalists were in ascendance and the future didn’t look real bright.
Today the situation has improved. Just how much? I talked with professor James Hoffmeier of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, the organizer of the conference, for some historical perspective.
Prof. Hoffmeier is the excavator of Tel el-Borg, in the Northwestern Sinai region. We got an update on archaeology in that region also.
