Archaeology Links

Following up with my report last week about the archaeology seminar at Biola, I thought I'd post some links for further study. There is a certain contingent of crackpot Christian archaeology out there, so I am hoping this list will help eliminate some of that for you.

General web sites:
- Biblical Archaeological Society
- Bible Places blog (Todd Bolen's blog; Highly recommended!)
- Associates for Biblical Research (I am very cautiously recommending this site. These people are ardent young-earth creationists. However, I have it on fairly good authority that archaeological content on this site is sound. So just beware.)


Study Tools:
- Archaeological Study Bible, ed. Walt Kaiser (I think this a really cool resource. The only caveat I would offer is that the pages smell funny. Seriously.)
- Bible Places (Todd Bolen's web site)
- Walking in Their Sandals
- Follow the Rabbi (archaeology-based small group Bible studies; would make a great homeschool unit for high schoolers!)


Publications:
- Bible and Spade (published by Associates for Biblical Research; Again, be on the lookout for young-earth science as well!)
- Biblical Archaeology Review (mainstream research)


Books:
- A Biblical History of Israel, by Provan, Long, and Longman III
- Ancient Israel in Sinai: The Evidence for the Authenticity of the Wilderness Tradition, by Hoffmeier
- Archaeology and the Old Testament, by Hoerth (Awesome book! Lots of pictures; very readable.)
- Bible Archaeology, by Hoerth (pared-down version of the above)
- Israel in Egypt, by Hoffmeier (Reputable evangelical treatment of this controversial topic.)
- On the Reliability of the OT, by Kitchen (highly technical)


One more thing...
"How does one become a Biblical Archaeologist?"
