This book is timed perfectly for an around Easter release.A clear, concise view of biblical archaeology by scholar Craig Evans.
I am not a biblical scholar, and I had no difficulty understanding Evans work. It is a highly readable accoung of the archaeological discoveries related to and from the time of Jesus of Nazareth.
The book consists of 5 chapters delving into various aspects of Jesus's home, time in history and teachings.
Evans easily explains several elements of Jewish law, burial practices and general Jewish lifestyles.
He presents this information in an unbiased manner. I learned quite a lot from this book and will purchase other books by Mr. Evans.
