The View From Nebo
How Archaeology Is Rewriting the Bible and Reshaping the Middle EastUnknown - 2001
The accounts of the Holy Lands history in the Bible have for years been taken for granted. But recently, a body of discoveries has raised questions about many of the most widely accepted Biblical narratives. Amy Dockser Marcus examines this research, which is changing not only our understanding of Scripture but the face of the Middle East today. Marcus takes the reader on a tour of the Old Testament to reveal new discoveries about the history of that time, and reminds us that the problems that plague the modern Middle East have their roots in Biblical timesand may find their solutions there, as well.
