Item description for Virtual History and the Bible by J. Cheryl Exum...

To mark the new millennium, "Virtual History and the Bible" asks where we are at the "fin de siecle" and how we got that way. What if important events in ancient history had turned out differently? How different might the present century be? What if Merneptah's scribes were telling the truth when they claimed, "Israel has been laid waste?" What if the exodus and conquest had really happened? What if we had no Assyrian account of Sennacherib's third campaign or the palace reliefs depicting his capture of Lachish? What if the Chronicler did use the Deuteronomistic History? What if Luke had never met Theophilus? What if Paul had travelled east rather than west? This is not fantasy or fiction. The sixteen essays in this volume, by eminent historians of the Bible, engage in serious scholarly inquiry into alternative historical scenarios and their potential consequences. The result is a trenchant demonstration of the ways historians set about working with the evidence in order to reconstruct the past. Contributors Keith W. Whitelam, Lester L. Grabbe, Susan Ackerman, Thomas L. Thompson, Ernst Axel Knauf, Ehud Ben Zvi, Diana Edelman, Robert P. Carroll, Niels Peter Lemche, Joseph Blenkinsopp, A. Graeme Auld, Philip R. Davies, Loveday C. A. Alexander, Richard Bauckham, John Dominic Crossan, Pheme Perkins.
