With fascinating pictures and commentary, the third volume of "The Bible Comes Alive" series focuses on the reign of Solomon. Clifford and Barbara Wilson present archaeological evidence that strongly supports the events of the Bible, which makes it difficult for scientists to refute biblical claims. The authors write in a conversational yet authoritative tone that makes understanding archaeological and biblical facts and artifacts easy to digest for the average reader.
I particularly enjoyed delving into the cultural, artistic and belief systems of the super-powers of Solomon's day: the Babylonians, Assyrians and Egyptians. It was fascinating to read how the authors--and other bible-based archaeologists--were able to use written records and artistic renditions to prove that events in the Old Testament are relevant and true.
This book would be perfect for use as a text for a "Bible-as-History" class or in the private collections of anyone who wishes to learn more about the truth of the Old Testament.
