B 29 (When) Did It Happen? New Contexts for Old Testament History (2003)


Discussions about the historical reliability of the Old Testament have been dogged by the lack of expected archaeological evidence for Old Testament events. But underlying this is a wider dispute about the chronology of events in the ancient world.

Two recent proposals have challenged the consensus on this chronology - with dramatic implications for our understanding of the Old Testament. John Bimson offers a clear but authoritative outline and evaluation of these proposals, and opens up the question of the factuality of this witness to God's acts in history.
