From Library Journal:

This gorgeous book, filled with National Geographic's typically beautiful photos, illustrations, and maps and covering the people and events of the Bible, placed into their archaeological context, will delight and inform those who are interested in the Bible from a religious, cultural, or historical perspective. Authors Currie (National Geographic's Concise History of the World) and Hyslop (National Geographic Almanac of World History) take the reader beneath the written word and delve into the cultures and peoples who lived in the biblical world. Arranged chronologically, the book does not confirm or deny the Bible itself but rather investigates a variety of topics-such as cities, languages, luxury goods, wars, taxes, writings, and ancient art-through artifacts and archaeological evidence to provide an extensive background for the reader. A time line of the Ancient Near East and further reading suggestions are included. Verdict This wonderful book is highly recommended for general readers and high school students and undergraduates interested in the Bible, history, art, or archaeology.-Melissa Aho, Univ. of Minnesota Libs., Minneapolis (c) Copyright 2010.
