In this groundbreaking work that sets apart fact and legend, authors Finkelstein and Silberman use significant archeological discoveries to provide historical information about biblical Israel and its neighbors. In this iconoclastic and provocative work, leading scholars Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman draw on recent archaeological research to present a dramatically revised portrait of ancient Israel and its neighbors. Challenging the fundamentalist readings of the scriptures and marshaling the latest archaeological evidence to support its new vision of ancient Israel, The Bible Unearthed offers a fascinating and controversial perspective on when and why the Bible was written and why it possesses such great spiritual and emotional power today.
Israel Finkelstein is a professor of archaeology at Tel Aviv University. He is a leading figure in the archaeology of the Levant and the laureate of the Dan David Prize in the Past Dimension -- Archaeology. He is the co-author, with Neil Silberman, of The Bible Unearthed Free Press, and the author of many field reports and scholarly articles. It challenges many of the assumptions developed by the literal religious minds of the ages, opening traditional possibilities to new conclusions.

The Bible Unearthed: Archaeology's New Vision of Ancient Israel and the Origin of Its Sacred Texts
The Bible is both a religious and historical work, but how much is myth and how much is history? When and why was the Old Testament written, and by whom? What do contemporary archaeologists know about the Patriarchs? The Exodus?
The Bible Unearthed
Much of the archeological speculation is out of date published , having been superseded by new discoveries that fill in the lacunae that the authors attempt to patch with speculation and A nice survey of the current state of archaeology associated with the Tanakh, avoiding both extremes of the current debates. None of the findings would be all that surprising to readers who approach Israel Finkelstein , Neil Asher Silberman.
