Item description for Jerusalem in Bible and Archaeology: The First Temple Period (Symposium Series (Society of Biblical Literature), No. 18.) by Andrew G. Vaughn & Ann E. Killebrew...
What are archaeologists and biblical scholars saying about Jerusalem? This volume includes the most up-to-date cross-disciplinary assessment of Biblical Jerusalem (ca. 2000-586 B.C.E.) that represents the views of biblical historians, archaeologists, Assyriologists, and Egyptologists. The archaeological articles both summarize and critique previous theories as well as present previously unpublished archaeological data regarding the highly contested interpretations of First Temple Period Jerusalem. The interpretative essays ask the question, "Can there be any dialogue between archaeologists and biblical scholars in the absence of consensus?" The essays give a clear "yes" to this question, and provide suggestions for how archaeology and biblical studies can and should be in conversation. This book will appeal to advanced scholars, nonspecialists in biblical studies, and lay audiences who are interested in the most recent theories on Jerusalem. The volume will be especially useful as a supplemental textbook for graduate and undergraduate courses on biblical history.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jerusalem in Bible and Archaeology: The First Temple Period (Symposium Series (Society of Biblical Literature), No. 18.)?
Biblical Studies and Archaeology Aug 5, 2005
This symposium provides the reader with a breadth of opinion on the archaeological evidence and interpretation in Jerusalem. The editors have brought together the work of biblical scholars and archaeologists with diverse opinions about how to interpret archaeology and the relation of findings to biblical texts. Authors deal with Jerusalem from the Bronze Age through the end of the first temple period. Not a text I would recommend to the novice. Some basic understanding of major archaeological features of the city and Hebrew Bible, especially (1 Samuel thru 2 Chronicles) are required.
