Book Review - Archaeology And The Old Testament

Archaeology And The Old Testament

By: James B. Pritchard

Book Review

I suppose most people would be surprised when I say that I found this book riveting. But, alas, I did! I blew threw it in a matter of a few hours. It is succinct and yet descriptive - relevant and distant. It is not comprehensive though. That, I suppose, contributes to its charm. Pritchard organizes some of the major finds in the last 200 years under major headings, and he introduces you to the big names. It is easy to gain a good grid with which to dig deeper with other works. In other words, this is a a good entry point into archaeological studies. Something else that makes this book interesting is that it was written in 1958. I enjoy reading older books and their corollary views of the the world in which they were written.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
