Item description for Lost Treasures of the Bible: Understanding the Bible Through Archaeological Artifacts in World Museums by Clyde E. Fant & Mitchell G. Reddish...

Overview
"Lost Treasures of the Bible" contains detailed descriptions and photographs of biblically significant archaeological objects housed in more than 25 museums worldwide. This selection of 100-plus artifacts illuminates the history, culture, and practices of the biblical world as a whole.

Publishers Description
Lost Treasures of the Bible contains detailed descriptions and photographs of biblically significant archaeological objects housed in over twenty-five museums worldwide. This selection of more than one hundred artifacts - many of them relatively unknown - illuminates the history, culture, and practices of the biblical world as a whole. Each entry also includes a discussion of that particular object's relevance for understanding the Bible.

To assemble this amazing collection, Clyde Fant and Mitchell Reddish themselves traveled to each of these museums throughout the world. Their photographs, descriptions, and histories of the various artifacts enable readers to appreciate these significant objects to an extent not usually enjoyed by even the most experienced museum visitors.

For travelers visiting such famous museums as the Louvre in Paris, the British Museum, or the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, this volume will be an indispensable companion. Each artifact is located not only as to its museum site but also by its specific identification number, which is particularly valuable for smaller and lesser-known objects - true "lost treasures."

Fant and Reddish's Lost Treasures of the Bible will serve as an informative, accessible guide to globe-trotters and armchair travelers alike.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lost Treasures of the Bible: Understanding the Bible Through Archaeological Artifacts in World Museums?

Excellent  Feb 28, 2010
Extremely helpful overview of archaeological discoveries, their significance, present location in museum, etc. Agree with another reviewer that more pictures, esp. in color, would greatly enhance the book.
 
Unbiased review.  Jan 30, 2010
It is the best of its kind--actually, there isn't another. Brilliantly written, ingeniously devised, with excellent photographs throughout....oh...well...I am a coauthor.
 
A treasure for your Biblical library  Feb 2, 2009
This book is a wealth of information on Biblical archaeological finds in museums today. I only wish there were more pictures. If you are an evangelical conservative like I am and like to keep up with what is happening in the Biblical archaeological world this book is a great resource. We have a small museum in our church with over 150 artifacts so it's great to have this on hand for questions that come up. The only other problem I have is the liberal slant on the "Biblical Significance" sections. But discernment is always needed when studying about Biblical subjects.
