The Bible and Archaeology

Matthieu Richelle



2018, 152 Seiten


Eine ausgezeichnete Einführung in die Biblische Archäologie, mit Fallstudien zur Davidisch-Salomonischen Zeit.

Umschlagtext: "Ancient artifacts and the Bible illuminate each other in various ways, but it can be difficult to understand how this process works and how archaological discoveries should be interpreted. In this book, Matthieu Richelle provides an enlightening perspective on these issues, showing how texts and material culture are in a fascinating 'dialogue' with one another that sheds light on the meaning and importance of both. What emerges is a rich and balanced picture that enlivens our understanding of the Bible's message, increases our appreciation for the historical and cultural contexts in which it was written, and helps us be realistic about the limits of our knowledge."
