Abstract:

"Kitchen draws on a range of historical data from the ancient Near East - the Bible's own world - and uses it to reassess both the biblical record and the critics who condemn it. Working back from the latest periods (for which hard evidence is readily available) to the remotest times. Kitchen systematically shows up the many failures of favored arguments against the Bible and marshals pertinent permanent evidence from antiquity's inscriptions and artifacts to demonstrate the basic honesty of the Old Testament writers."--BOOK JACKET.
