Joseph Callaway, author, scholar, and renowned archaeologist uncovers facts and discoveries of ancient Israel and sheds new light on the lives of the Old Testament people. Bringing together insights from archaeological evidence, historical record, and biblical accnts, Callaway breathes life into these ancient characters. Each of these "faces" of ordinary human beings who were called upon by God to do extraordinary things provides a fascinating and compelling picture of the Old Testament.
This book is a poignant reminder of the utter brilliance of Joe Callaway. He uncovers facts and discoveries of ancient Israel and its people as only an archaeologist and theologian could. We begin to see how archaeology and theology come together— how the knowledge of the land, the people, and their society can affect the interpretation of the stories of the Old Testament. It opens our minds to new possibilities and helps us explore new and different meanings from some old scriptures. Faces of the Old Testament should be on the reading list of every Sunday School teacher."
