Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

#1307 Lawrence Geraty – A Life in Archaeology, and the Archaeology of Eilat Mazar

Lawrence Geraty

Lawrence Geraty

Prof. Geraty has been an archaeologist and the president of a University, as had Benjamin Mazar, the grandfather and mentor of Israeli Archaeologist Eilat Mazar. Geraty also served as the president of The American Schools of Oriental Research, a rare honor for an evangelical archaeolist and former pastor. This was the second of my interviews with leading American evangelical archaeologists, as part of my research for the Eilat Mazar profile in the November issue of Christianity Today.

Prof. Geraty discusses his background in Biblical Archaeology, and his connections to the Mazar family.
