We are excited to announce the release of a new book by our friend and archaeologist Dr. Titus M. Kennedy. Some of you had the chance to join Dr. Kennedy last fall as he led tours to various archaeological sites in Israel during last year’s Insider’s Briefing event.
His book is called Unearthing the Bible: 101 Archaeological Discoveries that Bring the Bible to Life. It’s a visual guide to 101 objects that provide compelling evidence for the historical reliability of the bible from the dawn of civilization through the early church. Gathered from more than 50 museums, private collections, and archaeological sites, these pieces not only reinforce the reliability of the biblical narratives, but also provide rich cultural insights into the ancient world.
The Bible has long been dismissed as a book of myths, legends, fairy tales, and propaganda. Yet when we examine the archaeological evidence, its accuracy comes to light. Far from being a boring textbook, Dr. Kennedy’s photographs and detailed descriptions in Unearthing the Bible enable you to examine each piece of fascinating evidence for yourself.
As Dr. Stephen Meyer writes in the foreword to the book: “Many in our elite media and academic culture reflexively reject the biblical message as factually and historically inaccurate, thinking that surely the relevant archaeological evidence supports such a judgment. This book instead shows that a surprising array of evidence supports the historical reliability of the biblical text, and does so across different periods of biblical history.”
Just as a biological artifact can be evaluated for the presence of design, so also can archaeological artifacts be evaluated in light of the scriptural account of historic events and people.
