Evidence from archaeology is one great proof of biblical accuracy, and it is the focus of this series of articles.

We offer you a sampling of the evidence that is available—documentation showing that details of the people, places and events described in the Bible—many of them mentioned only in passing—have been verified by archaeologists and historians. Many excellent books have been published in recent years that verify the dependability of Scripture, and no doubt more will follow as new discoveries come to light.

In short this author should be placed along with the very greatest of historians."
