With each passing year, archaeologists and historical scholars uncover more evidence that the people, places, and events presented in the Bible are verifiable historical facts. This engaging, full-color resource presents 101 undisputed examples of those people, places, and events to help ground your reading of the Scriptures in the historic record. The proofs include

  • Scripture references
  • full-color photos
  • a brief discussion of the evidence
  • a list of other places in the Bible the person, place, or event is mentioned
  • and a list of sources to consult for further information and verification

This fascinating volume is not only a strong apologetic for the historicity of the Bible but is also the perfect resource for the layperson who wants to enhance their personal Bible study and for those teaching Sunday school or leading a group study.

Daniel Hays is a reliable and careful biblical scholar whose writings I have used and have recommended to others. Here is another fine, accessible work--this time on historical and archaeological evidences for Scripture. This book is a valuable guide for Christians and non-Christians alike who are interested in seeing how solidly the Bible is rooted in history. I look forward to having this book with me the next time I visit Israel!

—Paul Copan, Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics, Palm Beach Atlantic University, and author of Is God a Moral Monster? Making Sense of the Old Testament God

A Christian’s Guide to Evidence for the Bible is, simply put, a terrific resource! I salute and applaud J. Daniel Hays for putting together this beautifully illustrated volume that, with great thoughtfulness, clarity, and organizational skill, illuminates key literary, historical, and geographical aspects of challenging biblical texts related to 101 people, places, and events. Drawing on his years of teaching, research, and travel, Hays has provided a marvelous gift for students, teachers, and scholars of both the Old and New Testaments. I am delighted to recommend this wonderful work.

—David S. Dockery, Distinguished Professor of Theology, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary; president, International Alliance for Christian Education

For those who already believe, apologetics provides an external witness to an internal reality. The same can be said for A Christian’s Guide to Evidence for the Bible. It is a witness for those who are searching and an affirmation for those who are already convinced. By providing this accessible scholarship, Hays has given a great gift to the church. I have benefited from his books for years, and this work is no exception. Read and be encouraged!

—Dr. Steven Smith, senior pastor, Immanuel Baptist Church, Little Rock, Arkansas
