My interest in the bible is always to find how it and history go together.

Religious beliefs were not part of why I bought it.

It was a bit hard going and there were times when it was repetitive but overall it was very much of an eye opener regarding the historical times of events.

A book of excellent scholarship and hard work.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent archaeological view of the Bible. The author compares archaeological data and other ancient writings with the Bible and notes the eerie agreement between accounts. While the author readily shows when various accounts disagree, this book tends to support the historical accuracy of the Bible. This is a very good suplement to the Bible.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The media like to promote the idea that science has disproved the Bible. Werner Keller, in a most readable way, reviews the finds of archaeologists over the past century , showing that their work support the Biblical accounts.

To give two examples only, the Hittites - unknown to the historians - were found to be a once powerful empire, just as the Bible records. An inscription excavated in Corinth confirms that Gallio was the proconsul of Achaia (in AD 51) as stated in Acts.

Keller throws light on a number of events. For example, 'manna', which fed the Israelites in the desert, can be purchased today - it is the secretion of the tamarisk tree. It has to be collected early in the morning before ants devour it.

Intelligent, revealing, and as fun to read as an archeological mystery novel .. this is a must for anyone regardless of one's religious standpoint, for this "novel" deals with reality, not metaphysics. It is one of the most enjoyable books in my library.

Format: Hardcover
An interesting book , in which allowances have to be made for the fact that it was first published in 1956 (I have just read the 1967 impression).
Keller outlines the historical backdrop to the Biblical narrative , while providing fascinating archaeological and historical evidence to prove that 'The Bible is right after all!', as the author writes in the introduction.
For those who claim that the book is discredited by how long ago it was written , the passage of time since then has strenghtned , not weakened the case for the Bible as history.

Part of the evidence presented by Keller includes Egyptian narratives that speak of similar events to those in the Exodus and Babylonian narratives that speak of similar events to those in the Bible narrative.
Keller writes of a Mesopotamian story about a baby in the bullrushes , and go's throught the plagues of Egypt describing how each one of them , with the exception of the death of the firstborn , is born out by phenomena in Egypt-each plague has a parrallel seen in Egypt.
Further the author explores the phenomenon of manna in the desert , and how it has been collected in the Sinai by later explorers.
The age of Solomon and the biography of Cyrus the Great are explored.
It is interesting that in the Persian records Cyrus was to be killed as a baby on order of his grandfather but the would be executor had no heart for the deed.
Could the Allmighty have spared Cyrus for the task of letting the Jews return to Israel and rebuild Jerusalem
The book go's up the destruction of Jerusalem in 66 CE , before exploring various scientific phenomenon , which go to prove the truth of the Bible.
Interestingly gardeners and workers sometimes still find medallions with Roman descriptions in the soil of Israel today.
This book is a good primer to the subsequent works of this nature.

Format: Hardcover
This exciting book brings a new dimension to the bible. It gives the reader 'archeological confirmation' to the timing and reality of biblical events, showing in some cases (eg falling of the walls of Jericho) how God may have used nature's powerful forces to bring his work into reality.
