Bible archeology and some fascinating finds

Did Sodom and Gomorrah really happen? Where did Melchisedek live? Where was Abraham when he was spared from sacrificing his son? And how many histories are there buried under Temple Mount?

There are stories buried all over the worlds in the stones of archeology, but with so many religions centered on the Holy Land there are bound to be lots and lots of stories there.  While there might not be evidence (yet) for every Bible story I've read, I was amazed to find out how much evidence there is for some.

I particularly enjoyed the chapters on the Cities of the Plains, and seeing that curious Biblical tidbit about tarpits near Sodom and Gomorrah. Suddenly it all makes sense, and I like things to make sense.

This book's not a quick read, but it's a fascinating one and highly recommended.
