Item description for The Future of Biblical Archaeology: Reassessing Methodologies and Assumptions: The Proceedings of a Symposium August 12-14, 2001 at Trinity Internatio by James K. Hoffmeier & Alan Millard...

Overview
Biblical archaeology has long been a discipline in crisis. "Biblical minimalists," who believe that the Bible contains little of actual historical fact, today are challenging those who accept the historicity of Scripture. In this volume Jewish and evangelical Christian archaeologists, historians, and biblical scholars confront the minimalist critique and offer positive alternatives. Bringing a needed scientific approach to biblical archaeology, the contributors construct a new paradigm that reads the Bible critically but sympathetically. Their work covers the full range of subjects relevant to understanding the context of the Bible, including proper approaches to scriptural interpretation, recent archaeological evidence, and new studies of Near Eastern texts and inscriptions.

An assembly of informed scholars  Aug 4, 2007
The scholars assembled for this conference and eventual published volume are all top-notch in their respective fields: Egyptologists, Assyriologists, Hittitologists, Ugaritologists, field archeologists. Although their views on the historicity of the Bible are conservative, they speak cautiously and ground their views on a wide variety of types of evidence, both artifactual and documentary. I cannot think of a better place for a general reader to find orientation in the current debates about what history lies behind the biblical witness.
 
Chronology Problems in Biblical Arrchaeology  Mar 16, 2007
Hooffmeier provides an excellent discussion of the status of ongoing work and problems but fails to address the chronology problems brought out by David Rohl in "pharaohs and Kings, by Roger Henry in "Synchronized Chronology - Rethinking Middle East Antiquity" and by Ted T. Stewart in "Solving the Exodus Mystery". Anyone seriously interested in the archaeology and History of Palestine from 2500 to 4000 years ago, should read these other books as well as Hoffmeier.
