Between Text and Artifact: Integrating Archaeology in Biblical Studies Teaching
Milton C. Moreland
061708PBetween Text and Artifact provides teachers of biblical studies with tools needed to integrate recent archaeological information into their classes. Thirteen archaeologists and biblical scholars who teach in undergraduate, graduate, and seminary settings give practical advice about the best available literature and audio-visual material in the field of archaeology related to the Hebrew Bible, New Testament, early Judaism, women in the ancient world, and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Each illustrates how archaeological data helps students visualize the material culture, environments, and landscapes of the Bible and understand the political and social motivations of events in the text.
