Customer Review

on 18 February 2011
I once heard a christian apologist confidently proclaim that there was nothing in biblical archaology that disproved the Old Testament account of Israelite history. 'The Bible Unearthed' certainly casts a shadow over such bold pronouncements.

This book makes a brilliant case for not taking the Old Testament as historical. For example, there are plenty of Egyptian texts (eg the Tel-el Amarna letters), and writing in tombs that provides a good insight into the land of Canaan. Nothing in them mentions an exodus or conquest! And wheras the Old Testament describes the Canaan cities as strong, with high walls, archaology reveals they were weak and lacking defensive structures. Clearly the biblical account is lacking...

Read this book. It's fascinating, intriguing and eye opening.
