In the DVD lecture series How Archaeology Illuminates the Bible: From the Patriarchs to the Babylonian Destruction William G. Dever gives eight lectures created specially for readers of Biblical Archaeology Review. Each is a gem. The lectures are illustrated with pictures, maps and plans from Professor Dever’s personal photos as well as photos from leading archaeological photographers. This course is for the beginner as well as the seasoned reader of Biblical Archaeology Review and for everyone in between. It is understandable for those coming to the subject for the first time and newly insightful for the advanced student.
