5.0 out of 5 stars Consise and interesting, 12 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Archaeology of the Bible (Hardcover)
I bought this book as reading material for a BA in Bible Archaeology that I am working on. The author makes the valid point that it need not be about trying to prove every word of scripture to be literally true, it is also not about trying to disprove scripture as many seek to do, its about what does archaeology have to teach that can help me understand what the bible teaches in a better way. Genesis, teaches a literal 6 days of creation say some, science suggests otherwise, does this negate Genesis? Not at all, because what Genesis teaches is that when nothing else existed God did and that he did something that brought about what we call life! Hoffmeier, explains the history of Biblical Archaeology, its strengths and limits, and goes on to explore some of the discoveries that have been made. Great introduction!
