The accounts of the Holy Land's history in the Bible have for years been taken for granted, but recently, a body of dramatic discoveries has raised the 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 startling 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 times - and may find their solutions there as well.

Marcus's extensive research included visits to digs in Egypt, Jordan, Israel and the West Bank, where she interviewed archaeologists, Bible scholars, government officials and historians.

[A] readable and absorbing survey...correcting the distortions which the Bible has introduced into our understanding of the history of the region...is a humane and worthy purpose, and I hope her book helps to achieve it.
