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 historic 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 examine to provide a dramatically revised portrait of historical Israel and its acquaintances. They argue that an important facts (or a telling loss of proof) at digs in Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon means that a number of the most famed tales within the Bible—the wanderings of the patriarchs, the Exodus from Egypt, Joshua’s conquest of Canaan, and David and Solomon’s significant empire—reflect the realm of the later authors instead of real historic proof.
Challenging the fundamentalist readings of the scriptures and marshaling the most recent archaeological proof to help its new imaginative and prescient of old Israel, The Bible Unearthed bargains a desirable and debatable point of view on while and why the Bible used to be written and why it possesses such nice religious and emotional energy at the present time.
