In this volume, Anthony J. Frendo argues that archaeological evidence should be taken into account when approaching the Bible to attain a more reliable reconstruction of the Scripture of ancient Israel. Illustrations are taken from the history of pre-exilic Israel and the importance of studying text with artifact is demonstrated through a detailed case study about the location of the house of Rahab as depicted in Joshua 2:15.
