The Bible and Our World: Ancient Lessons for Today
The Bible and Our World presents three stimulating and timely lectures from the Biblical Archaeology Society’s annual Bible and Archaeology Fest seminar. Two of the lectures grapple with how Biblical passages can be applied (and misapplied) to contemporary social debates and world events, while the third examines ancient words that are still found in the English language today.
