I am completing a book that provides an introductory level analysis of the evidence for the Old Testament and New Testament from archaeology and history. Lord willing, the book will be complete in a number of months. Its intended uses include:
1.) Providing an overview of this important subject for lost people who have intellectual objections to the Bible.
2.) Strengthening the faith of believers through a presentation of the historical evidence for the Bible, that they might in a greater way love God with their minds.
3.) Equipping believers to be able to deal with objections to the historical accuracy for the Bible that they encounter in evangelism.
My intention is to get the book in print after it is completed. At this time, however, I have posted online the section on the Old Testament or Hebrew Bible and archaeology. I have sought to write at a level the average believer and the interested unconverted person can understand, and have included many interesting pictures of historical finds that validate the holy Scriptures. If you want to know the answers to questions such as:
1.) Does archaeology support the Biblical record about the patriarchs (Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, etc.)?
2.) Is there historical evidence for Israel's exodus from Egypt?
3.) What are the earliest references to Israel in the land of Canaan in extrabiblical documents?
4.) Are there references outside the Bible to figures such as King David by name?
5.) What evidence exists for the Biblical period of the divided monarchy and the exile?
6.) Do the accounts of the Biblical prophets, like Isaiah and Ezekiel, receive validation from archaeology and history?
7.) Does archaeology demonstrate that Biblical prophecies are genuine supernatural predictions, so that the Bible is necessarily true?
I would encourage you to check it out. If you watched my debate with the Freedom From Religion Foundation President Dan Barker, "Archaeology and Prophecy Validate the Bible as the Word of God," I would also encourage you to check my new work out, as it covers a great deal more than what could be examined in the debate.
I have also included some very recent information that, as it receives continuing validation, could revolutionize debate on the historical character of the Old Testament, including the 15th century B. C. reference in early Hebrew or the proto-consonantal script to "Moses" by name.
