author of The First Historians: The Hebrew Bible and History
The boldest and most exhilarating synthesis of the Bible and archaeology in fifty years.
John Shelby Spong
author of Here I Stand: My Struggle for a Christianity of Integrity, Love, and Equality
A bold and provocative book, well researched, well written, and powerfully argued. It challenges many of the assumptions developed by the literal religious minds of the ages, opening traditional possibilities to new conclusions.
Los Angeles Times
A brutally honest assessment of what archaeology can and cannot tell us about the historical accuracy of the Bible...presented with both authority and panache.
