By Neil Asher Silberman, Israel Finkelstein

During this groundbreaking paintings that units aside truth and legend, authors Finkelstein and Silberman use major archeological discoveries to supply old information regarding biblical Israel and its neighbors.

In this iconoclastic and provocative paintings, prime students Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman draw on fresh archaeological learn to offer a dramatically revised portrait of historical Israel and its friends. They argue that an important proof (or a telling loss of proof) at digs in Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon means that a few of the most renowned tales within the Bible—the wanderings of the patriarchs, the Exodus from Egypt, Joshua’s conquest of Canaan, and David and Solomon’s mammoth empire—reflect the realm of the later authors instead of real old proof.

Challenging the fundamentalist readings of the scriptures and marshaling the most recent archaeological facts to help its new imaginative and prescient of historic Israel, The Bible Unearthed deals a desirable and debatable standpoint on whilst and why the Bible used to be written and why it possesses such nice non secular and emotional strength this present day.
