Another wonderful book recommendation Review by Margaret
What did you think of this book?
In the beginning of February, I told you about an awesome book from Answers in Genesis that made me really want to get this one too! Unwrapping the PharaohsIf you missed that review, make sure to check back and read about Unwrapping the Pharaohs (review) as well. Many years now, I have slowly been collecting books for our studies. After all, I have known that I wanted to teach Classical Christian Education since my AppleBlossom was just a thought and now our studies for Ancient Egypt are finally here and we use these resources daily. At first, I found myself confused as I was just going on memory and thought that indeed Unwrapping the Pharaohs and Unveiling the Kings of Israel were, in fact, one book until I started writing out my lists and then I was shocked to discover that indeed they are two different books that complement each other greatly!
The complete title is Unveiling the Kings of Israel: Revealing the Bible’s Archaeological History. What an incredible concept! Years ago, people might just say oh the Bible is just a myth, just a book of fairy tales told to scare people into a certain lifestyle. But as each year goes by, and more research is completed, each new find proves more and more how the Bible is truth and facts support it. In my youth growing up, a timeline of “young Earth” vs. “old Earth” wasn’t an issue. There wasn’t a demand for absolute evolutionism vs. Creationism. It was just this is what science says, this is what historical record says, and this is what the Bible says… now make up your own thesis. Today, our church can have more information to build their comprehension of history on and so much of that points right back to what the Bible and biblical scholars states.
Unveiling the Kings of Israel is a history of Israel presented in an awe-inspiring and glossy full-color high-quality book. This book reveals the archaeological evidence supporting from the time before Abraham in Ur to beyond Solomon and more. The vibrancy of the photography chosen brings these locations to life. This would be a great reference for someone that is unable to ever physically visit the promised land. Through Unveiling the Kings of Israel, students of any age can go back in time to the streets of Biblical notability and understand where the fathers of faith come from.
Recommended to me by the Veritas Press Scholars Academy. This book was received for review from Master Books Read-n-Review program. Honest opinions. (Posted on 5/20/2016)
Archaeology and Biblical History Review by Heather
What did you think of this book?
Unveiling the Kings of Israel is an excellent resource for learning about Biblical and ancient history. Beautiful, glossy full-color pictures allow the reader to travel to archaeological dig sites and museums to gain a better understanding of what the cultures and landscapes would have been like during ancient times. By comparing Biblical accounts of events with ancient manuscripts and monuments as well as archaeological finds, a more clear timeline of ancient times comes into picture. Time and again, the Biblical historical account of ancient history is shown to be accurate. A new timeline is being established which lines up with the teachings in the Bible.
David tackles what appear to be Biblical inaccuracies head on and proves that it's not the Biblical account that it is inaccurate. Instead, it's the old timeslines that are in error. As more archaeological finds come to light, the revised (aka Biblical) timeline appears to be the more accurate timeline. When historical accounts are placed into a Biblical timeline, many events and finds appear to make more sense.
In Unveiling the Kings of Israel, readers will be taken through a journey in time starting with Adam and ending with Christ (the last Adam). The historical, Biblical accounts are measured against the established timelines, archaeological findings, and the revised timeline. Each chapter begins with a brief overview of the events being covered. It then gives a scripture passage and gets into the details of the Biblical account as well as the established timeline, what archaeologists have found and believe, and how it all fits into the revised timeline. The chapters are filled with illustrations and beautiful pictures that are sure to grab the attention of readers young and old.
The book concludes with illustrations of Tabernacle Life, information about Solomon's Temple, details about the Dead Sea Scrolls, and several different tables of reference materials. The index will help readers to quickly find specific topics if they don't want to read straight through the book, but I think you'll want to read the entire book. Later, you can go to specific items as you want to do more in-depth research.
Unveiling the Kings of Israel is a well-written book that definitely peaked my interest in learning more about certain aspects of ancient history. I personally enjoyed all of the pictures and illustrations. We will be using this book further during both our Old Testament and New Testament studies to help gain a better understanding of the cultures during Biblical times.
