"A most interesting read and a compelling empirically-based hypothesis that, more convincingly than previous attempts, brings biblical accounts into accord with modern scientifically-derived understanding of the cosmos. If supported by subsequent and exhaustive research, this is not only ground-breaking archaeology but a cautionary narrative for present and future generations. The fate of Tall el-Hammam/Sodom and its impressive, if unheralded, Jordan Valley Middle Bronze Age civilization will eventually be repeated. It's not a matter of 'if' but 'when'." -- Malcolm A. LeCompte, Ph.D., retired Associate Professor and former Research Director, Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Research, Elizabeth City State University, Elizabeth City, NC, and cosmic impact researcher.

Dr. Phillip J. Silvia is field archaeologist and supervisor with the Tall el-Hammam Excavation Project in Jordan. With a degree in Electrical Engineering from Northeastern University (Boston, MA), a Master of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (South Hamilton, MA), and over 40 years of experience in engineering, software development, project management, and pastoral ministry, Phil brought a unique perspective to his pursuit of a Ph.D. in Archaeology and Biblical History at Trinity Southwest University (Albuquerque, NM), focusing on the Middle Bronze Age civilization-ending destruction of the Middle Ghor, the event that destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities of the Jordan Valley plain north of the Dead Sea. This book, The Destruction of Sodom: What We Have Learned from Tall el-Hammam and Its Neighbors, presents the fascinating results of his dissertation research in an easy-to-read format that will undoubtedly add to the ongoing dialog concerning this ancient city.
