Overview

One of the most fascinating aspects of biblical research today involves Near East discoveries and how they cast light on the Bible. This text by Raymond E. Brown is a handy guide which discusses twenty-five of the most significant archaeological and documentary finds of our times, and explains how they broaden our knowledge of the biblical world. This book provides helpful photographs and illustrations to enhance your study, as well as an insightful introduction by the author in which Brown recounts how for himself, reading of such discoveries sparked him to commit his life to formal Bible study and helped him develop his cardinal principle of biblical interpretation: viewing the Bible as the “word of God” involves a combination of divine inspiration and human time-conditioned perception.
