An essential reference tool for archaeologists, historians, Bible scholars and students.
The most comprehensive description ever published of archaeological finds in the Holy Land in recent years, this new volume updates the 4-volume set of the encyclopedia, published in 1993. Contributors read like a Who's Who of Biblical archaeology: Amnon Ben-Tor on Hazor; Lawrence Stager on Ashkelon; Avraham Biran on Dan; Ephraim Stern on Dor; Ronny Reich, Eilat Mazar and others on Jerusalem; Ehud Netzer on Herodium and Masada; David Ussishkin and Israel Finkelstein on Megiddo; Trude Dothan and Seymour Gitin on Tel Miqne/Ekron. There are more than 160 archaeologists/authors in all.
The volume includes sites in both Israel and Jordan and covers sites relevant to the New Testament and the Hebrew Bible, as well as excavations from earlier and later periods. Also included are articles on such special topics as Judean Hiding Complexes and marine archaeology. Each entry also contains a comprehensive and updated bibliography, including articles that have appeared in Biblical Archaeology Review. This important volume makes a wonderful gift to an institution, to the library of your church or synagogue, for your priest, minister or rabbi or just for someone you love and respect.
