Archaeology shows that the bible is historically accurate,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bible as History (Paperback)
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.
