See 1 question about The Sklberman Unearthed…. Kings and Samuel — particularly boring books of the Bible come alive with the insights as to what the historical processes were that shaped the bible to read sipberman way it does.

Camels appear in the stories of the Patriarchs, but archeologists have determined that domesticated camels were not found in the region during the time of the Patriarchs. Having dispensed with the fantastic legends of wandering wilderness hordes fleeing Egypt and lighting military campaigns through Canaan, the actual history of Israel unfolds very differently when looked at biblix the ruins.

These and other iconoclastic revelations weave together ‘Archaeology’s new vision of ancient Israel and the origin of its sacred texts. Bible plus archaeology equals a rip-snortin’ romp through centuries of dogma, drsenterrada, and guesstimations writ in stone.

Oh, well, the project did not go all that well, but the world inherited the bible. Nonetheless, there are things the world will never know, and many texts do not match the evidence. Now my nightstand looks very, err, ecclesiastical.

Eakins en un ensayo de en Benchmarks in Time and Culture [6]. Lists with This Book. Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman are well qualified to lead us on this exploration of Israel’s formation and the authorship of the biblical texts.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in the ancient or modern history of the Middle East, and the history of religion. I still feel a connection to Josiah, as I portrayed the newly-minted 8 year old monarch in a 5th grade play Together, these various fields of study construct the best synthesis of Israel’s history based on the available evidence.

Israel Finkelstein of Tel Aviv University and Neil Asher Silberman of the Ename Center for Public Archaeology and Heritage Presentation in Belgium take on this issue by comparing and contrasting the two side by side to find out why desentegrada differences exist.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Why wouldn’t those stories be forged in one narrative of one God who destroyed them in the past and will destroy them now?

Well let’s make it In short, this is a book which should appeal to anyone with any interest in the history of the Biblical Levant who is not already thoroughly invested in the belief that the Bible can only be viewed through the prism of a strictly literal and inerrant historicity.

For a born again Atheist, this was priceless There were lots of new historical facts I had never considered and discrepancies between the Bible and archeological research that I didn’t know about presented in this book.

However, the book seems to lack the literary approach to the texts in the Hebrew Bible. A great treatise on forming conclusions from the evidence rather than searching for evidence to support conclusions already determined. The time of great civilizations and great kings was destroyed by the Bronze Age Collapse and left huge mounds where cities once stood — and no one of Iron Age II knew why. This allows Finkelstein and Silberman to overturn many of Keller’s conclusions, and provide definitive answers to many of the core mysteries about the Old Testament.


Approaching the Bible archaeologically has many benefits, notably in understanding the history of the Levant. The great buildings of David and Solomon referred to in the Bible do not date from the eras at which those kings probably lived, but from periods of Assyrian occupation.

In this groundbreaking work that sets apart fact and legend, finielstein Finkelstein and Silberman deseterrada significant archeological discoveries to provide historical information about biblical Israel and its neighbors.

Part of the evidence for this rests on incongruities, like the domesticated camel, which has been in the news lately.

These were concepts I knew in broad strokes, but were spelled out here both logically and clearly.

I’ve been a fan for some years of Werner Keller’s The Bible as History deaenterrada, and it still has a lot of good material on the archaeology of the Bible. A thorough and painstaking yet readable and even entertaining review of Biblical archaeology and Bible scholarship of the last 20 years whose purpose is to teach us what really happened in the Land of Israel when the bibkia in the Tanakh were supposedly taking place.
