About this title:

Synopsis:

Engage the results of ree decades of dialogue, discussion, and debate within Syro-Palestinian archaeology and ancient Israelite history

This book brings together for the first time an emerging centrist paradigm that the material cultural data, the biblical traditions, and the ancient Near Eastern written sources are all significantly relevant to the historical quest for Iron Age Israel.

Features

  • Balanced approach to the question of the relevance of the biblical account for reconstructing early Israel's history
  • Organization by time period for easy comparison of Finkelstein and Mazar's positions
  • Introductory essays for each section give overviews of the archaeological theories
