What does W.G. Dever know?,
This review is from: What Did the Biblical Writers Know (Paperback)
Oh dear. This book does not even begin to answer the question it poses on its cover. Unfortunately, instead of answering that question, the author engages in an extended rant against other scholars in different field over issues he doesn't appear to understand.
If you want to find out what the biblical writers knew and when they knew it, there are plenty of good introductions to biblical studies. This isn't one of them.

I am interested in this book as it is indicated on Wikipedia that it summarises the arguments against 'minimalists'. I glanced at a copy today, it looked like the worst sort of ad hominem rant - if Dever is the standard bearer for the maximalists they have surely lost the argument.
