Anyone wanting a concise, authoritative, and up-to-date account can do no better than to turn to Eric Cline. (Church Times)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Public interest in biblical archaeology is at an all-time high, as television documentaries pull in millions of viewers to watch shows on the Exodus, the Ark of the Covenant, and the so-called Lost Tomb of Jesus. Important discoveries with relevance to the Bible are made virtually every year--during 2007 and 2008 alone researchers announced at least seven major discoveries in Israel, five of them in or near Jerusalem. Biblical Archaeology offers a passport into this fascinating realm, where ancient religion and modern science meet, and where tomorrow's discovery may answer a riddle that has lasted a thousand years.
Archaeologist Eric H. Cline here offers a complete overview of this exciting field. He discusses the early pioneers, such as Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie and William Foxwell Albright, the origins of biblical archaeology as a discipline, and the major controversies that first prompted explorers to go in search of objects and sites that would "prove" the Bible. He then surveys some of the most well-known biblical archaeologists, including Kathleen Kenyon and Yigael Yadin, the sites that are essential sources of knowledge for biblical archaeology, such as Hazor, Megiddo, Gezer, Lachish, Masada, and Jerusalem, and some of the most important discoveries that have been made, including the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Mesha Inscription, and the Tel Dan Stele. Subsequent chapters examine additional archaeological finds that shed further light on the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, the issue of potential frauds and forgeries, including the James Ossuary and the Jehoash Tablet, and future prospects of the field.
Biblical Archaeology: A Very Short Introduction captures the sense of excitement and importance that surrounds not only the past history of the field but also the present and the future, with fascinating new discoveries made each and every season.

About the Series: Combining authority with wit, accessibility, and style, Very Short Introductions offer an introduction to some of life's most interesting topics. Written by experts for the newcomer, they demonstrate the finest contemporary thinking about the central problems and issues in hundreds of key topics, from philosophy to Freud, quantum theory to Islam.

One of the most appealing things about the Bible is its detailed, sometimes even over scrupulous, concern with the details of locations, buildings, and genealogies. Judaism and Christianity are religions that are squarely grounded in history and geography of ancient Near East. However, for the better part of the past two millennia there was a rather scarce physical evidence for most of the places and events that had been described in the Bible. That all started to change in the nineteenth century with the advent of what would now be considered the field of "Biblical Archeology." This is a rather fascinating topic in its own right, and this very short introduction does a great feat of introducing this discipline to the general readership.

The first part of the book deals primarily with the history of Biblical Archeology. Its origins can be found in the middle of the nineteenth century when Westerners started accessing Palestine in ever-greater numbers. Unsurprisingly, most of the early archeologists were in one way or another religiously motivated, and a substantial number of them were either ministers or had other religious background. Even thought these early Biblical archeologists were by and large amateurs, their work and contributions to the field were quite remarkable. Over time the field has substantially matured, and this book does a great job of describing its evolution and most significant developments and findings. This book is in fact a great introduction to all of archeology, as many of the methods and techniques that are described herein are applicable in other archeological excavations as well.

This book traces in a clear and concise manner archaeological phases from the middle ages to the present time. It is clear about who discovered what, it defines both sides of major controversies, it puts the magazine "Biblical Archaeological Review" and founder Herschel Schenks in a proper perspective. A student, using this book, would be able to pick an area to do further research. This is the best written overview of archaeology I ever read. Mike Tuccinardi

A really great short intro to biblical archaelogy -- a lot of information packed into this short book, but still very readable and enjoyable.

My only issue is I wish it had more of the actual archaeology and a little less of the history of the archaeologists.

This is an excellent book in every way. In only about 150 pages, it includes nearly all the important sites, methods, people and schools of thought. It's well organized and written very clearly. It's a perfect survey/summary of Biblical Archaeology today.

One important update is required, though. The last chapter speaks about forgeries, and it focuses on the very serious charges that were made against Oded Golan, an Israeli collector of antiquities. This book appeared in 2009, but readers should know that Golan was acquitted of all forgery charges in March 2012.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Eric H. Cline's "Biblical Archaeology" is fact-packed 8 août 2015
Par Thomas - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Author Eric H. Cline's 2009 book delivers exactly what is promised, a VERY SHORT INTRODUCTION to biblical archaeology. Even so, there is considerable information about the progressive stages in the development of archaeological methodology over the past 200 years, and descriptions of the significant finds and the people who made them. The charge by one reviewer, that this book is biased against the biblical account, is spurious. I found the book to be scrupulously neutral, and for the record, Cline appears to assume the existence of an historical Jesus, "As for the actual ministry established by Jesus and his followers, some of the most interesting archaeological evidence was uncovered in November 2005..." (p. 112). If there is any bias, it is in favor of archaeology that has no agenda beyond historical accuracy. Cline details several recent examples of fraud and forgery, and the methods by which these were exposed, which devotees of the History Channel may find disquieting. The book has an index, a reference section for each chapter, and a "further reading" list.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A good introduction 13 avril 2014

This was a recommendation for an upcoming trip to Israel. It is a summary of Biblical archaeology, written with the non-academician in mind. It begins with basic Biblical history. Then it tells about the history of Biblical archaeology.

Academicians may be dismayed by the lack of detail and documentation, but it was perfect for my needs.
