Biblical archaeology, he writes, was an attempt to ground the historical witness of the Bible in demonstrable historical reality. Its theoretical base lay in the field of theology. American mainstream Protestantism strongly resisted the inroads of continental biblical criticism and sought support for its conservative views in archaeological research on the ancient Near East. The Bible was the source of the agenda for biblical archaeology, an agenda that was ultimately apologetical." "Davis traces the fascinating story of the interaction of biblical studies, theology, and archaeology in Palestine and the remarkable individuals who pioneered the discipline. He highlights the achievements of biblical archaeologists in the field, who gathered an immense body of data. Clarifying the theoretical and methodological framework of the original excavators, he believes, can make these data more useful for current research, allowing a more sober, reasoned judgment of both the accomplishments and the failures of biblical archaeology."--Jacket of print edition.
