Item description for Archaeology and Bible History by Joseph Free & Howard Vos...
Overview Using Bible history as the unifying element rather than a topical approach, this book shows how archaeological discoveries in Bible lands have helped to confirm the accuracy of Scripture. The authors also deal with issues of Biblical interpretation and criticism not strictly archaeological in nature. Free's text has been updated and revised by Vos.
Joseph P. Free's Archaeology and Bible History, first published in 1950, served well an entire generation of pastors, Sunday school teachers, laypersons, and college students by summarizing the history of the Bible and shedding light on biblical events through archaeological discoveries. The author demonstrated how such data helps us understand the Bible and confirm its historical accuracy. At times he also dealt with issues of biblical interpretation and criticism, always from a historically orthodox position. When the book was withdrawn from circulation in 1976 after the fourteenth printing, many hoped for the day when it would be revised and updated. That task has now been undertaken by one of Dr. Free's former students and a biblical archaeologist in his own right, Dr. Howard Vos. He has brought the archaeological and historical material up to date and has modified earlier archaeological interpretations where necessary. The bibliography has been almost totally replaced.
