Item description for Archaeology and the New Testament by John McRay...

Overview
Can a new understanding of Scripture be wrung from ancient stones and papyri? Systematically exploring sites and finds from NT times through the first years of the early church, McRay discusses excavation methodology, first-century social structure, and archaeology's contribution to textual criticism. Includes dozens of maps, diagrams, and charts; over 150 photos; glossary; and extensive notes.

Publishers Description
Veteran archaeologist John McRay sheds light on the biblical text by examining archaeological discoveries in "Archeology and the New Testament." As he tours sites associated with the ministry of Jesus, the journey of Paul, and the seven churches of Revelation, he shows the pervasive influence of society, architecture, and religion on the peoples of the first century and on the New Testament. The book includes maps, charts, diagrams, a glossary of terms, and more than 150 photographs that help the ancient world come alive. Now in paper.

Great lessons for newcomers to archeology  Apr 16, 2001
After reading Archeology and the Old Testament by Hoerth, this book fills out the needed holes. For a newcomer to the field of archeology this book helps to understand some of the basics. Very well put together and infromative. The development of ideas is clear and insightful. This book is a winner, and I recommend this for any student of the Bible who seeks to teach the Word of God in it's context. You will find yourself quoting from this book in your sermons!!!

Quick Review  Jun 12, 2000
An up to date discussion of the more important archaeological finds relevant to New Testament studies. Packed with social and cultural insights and written clearly.
 
A thorough, well written and illustrated work.  Aug 8, 1999
Although a scholarly, the author has done an excellent job of thoroughly presenting the current state of the archaeology of the New Testament in a manner both the scholar and layman will find approachable and thrilling.

The author handles all significant topics of New Testament archaeology from the life of Christ to the missionary journeys of the Apostle Paul in a systematic manner. For example, the author discusses and illustrates where Christ was templed by the devil from the pinnacle of the temple. In another example, fascinating pictures of 1st century life come alive through discussions of the dates and events that occured as Paul lived and shared the word of God with people at the various cities on his journeys. This weaving of biblical passages with the archaeological data make the book readable and sheds new light on the Bible and the historical sites.

There are detailed discussions of the city planning, civic centers, housing, commercial activities, entertainment, and the methods and difficulties of travel in the Roman world. There is a special chapter on archaeology and ancient documents.

The book is very well illustrated and includes detailed maps of most archaeological sites. There are many photographs and numerous Endnotes for further study.
