Background to the Bible

Authors: Chris Sinkinson, Clive Anderson, Brian Edwards

Product code: B533

Archaeology is never a static science. Every year and throughout the year, towns, items and artifacts are unearthed that throw important light on the background and context of the Bible.

Background to the Bible is a companion to the popular Evidence for the Bible that was published in 2014.

That publication could not possibly cover all the evidence supporting the trustworthiness of the Biblical record, and new discoveries are constantly coming to light in the vigorous and enlightening science of archaeology related to the Bible.

In Background to the Bible we have added new information to encourage an informed journey through the pages of the Bible.

For serious study or for relaxed and informative reading, this book will prove invaluable to all who have an interest in understanding what lies behind and around the events recorded in the Bible, which is the world’s most influential and widely sold, distributed and translated book.
