Archaeology and the Old Testament
Alfred J. Hoerth
From The Publisher:
Hoerth surveys the entire Old Testament, pointing out relevant archaeological material and explaining how it enriches biblical studies. In an attempt to bridge the Old and New Testament worlds, the author devotes the final chapter to examining the intertestamental period.
Archaeology and the New Testament presents the results of scholarly research, including the most recent archaeological discoveries, yet it remains readable and accessible. It boasts over 250 illustrative items charts, photographs, line drawings, and maps. In addition, it includes a helpful index and bibliography.
"Alfred Hoerth has been perhaps the most important influence on students in evangelical biblical archaeology over the past thirty years. No other teacher has prepared so many of us for careers that touch upon this descipline in one way or another. It is a great pleasure to welcome this well-written and illustrated volume that expresses in print those clear and enthusiastic presentations that first interested and excited many of the present generation of biblical scholars and archaeologists."
Richard S. Hess, professor of Old Testament, Denver Seminary
"Teachers and students alike will welcome this combination of Hoerth's informed scholarship and engaging style of presentation as he skillfully guides them through the many facets of biblical archaeology. His careful selection of material and his sensible approach to showing the reader how to use that material to gain understanding of the Old Testament combine to make this a superb introduction to the discipline. Hoerth's archaeological expertise is evident on every page. His years of teaching experience also yield their subtle fruits as he masterfully intertwines the biblical story with the history and culture of the ancient Near East. Archaeology and its finds become the tools of his craft as he artfully portrays the rich culture of the biblical world."
John H. Walton, professor of Old Testament, Moody Bible Institute
