Is the Bible true?  Is there archeological proof?

Unveiling the Kings of Israel shows archeological and Biblical proof of the Biblical kings like; David, Solomon and more.  Each chapter is filled with photos, artwork, Biblical quotes, and archeological proof from other countries.

Learn more about how Egypt and Israel chronology needs to be adjusted up to 600 years to match Bible chronology.  What will you believe, Bible chronology or current archeological chronology?

About the Author- David Down is the editor of “Archeological Diggings.”  For over 40 years he has been a field archeologist and excavates regularly in Israel.

My thoughts-

I was excited to review this book.  I am always interested in discovering how Bible and archeology chronologies match and the proof that I can either show or tell people when I want to help people believe in the Bible. 

The most interesting part of this book is the idea that chronologies of Egypt and Israel are off.  Up to 600 years!  If those times periods are adjusted to the Bible chronology then everything lines up perfectly and the Bible is proven as fact.  This book doesn’t describe how the chronologies have been determined so it would be helpful to add that information in future editions.

There is a modern map at the beginning of the book, but more historical maps would add a lot.  I would really like to see more maps of the lands of each of the kings discussed.

Would I recommend?  Yes!  I think that anybody who desires to learn about the archeological proof of the Bible should read this book.  Teachers/parents should add it to their history curriculum.

And all the photos are great too!!
