The Kregel Pictorial Guide to Old Testament Archaeology
An Exploration of the History of the Civilizations of Bible Times
by Alfred Hoerth
In this informative and colorful introduction to Old Testament archaeology, author Alfred Hoerth explores the history, culture, and social forces that shaped the biblical world. Beginning with Abraham, this concise guide follows the Bibles chronology, up to the return of the exiles in 536 BC. For each biblical era, the author examines the archaeological evidence related to the Bible and from neighboring nations, cultures, and people’s such as Mesopotamia, Sumer, Egypt, the Hittites, and the Babylonians.
Richly illustrated with color maps, photographs, illustrations, and diagrams, The Kregel Pictorial Guide to Old Testament Archaeology makes archaeology accessible and is the perfect resource for either personal or classroom use.
Alfred Hoerth is the former director of archaeology at Wheaton College, where he taught for almost thirty years. He is the author of Archaeology and the Old Testament, co-author of Bible Archaeology and co-editor of Peoples of the Old Testament.
