About the Author
Werner Keller (1909-1980) was a German civil servant, journalist, and anti-Nazi resistance fighter. In 1955 he published The Bible as History, his best-known book, which correlated the text of the Bible with the results of archaeological diggings in the Middle East, and has been translated into more than 20 languages and updated in two revised editions. He is also the author of The Etruscans. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

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.
