A propos de cet article

In 1986 Journalist John McCarthy was taken hostage in Beirut. During his five years in captivity he had very little reading material, but the one book he did have was the Bible, which he read from cover to cover - twice. He was particularly intrigued by the stories of the Old Testament, as they seemed to tell the history of the land and its ownership, of how the Children of Israel came to the Promised Land of Canaan and made it their own, but how much of this 'History' is actually true? Did the walls of Jericho really tumble at the sound of Joshua's trumpets?, was David the mighty King of Israel?, did Soloman build a Temple at Jerusalem? In an effort to answer such questions - questions which underpin the very life of the Middle East - John McCarthy returned to the Holy Land with his Bible in his hand. He visited sites associated with the great Biblical stories and spoke to the Archaeologists and the Historians who are uncovering the truth of the Biblical Past. d/w slightly bumped Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

In six 30-minute programmes scheduled for transmission in autumn 2001 John McCarthy travels through the Holy Land to examine the validity or otherwise of stories from the Old Testament. Bringing in history, archaeology and new research, his intriguing journey is the subject of this thought-provoking tie-in which looks at: the truth behind Jericho's 'tumbling' walls; the mystery of the Promised Land; who was Solomon; when did the Jews become monotheists; what was Zion; and when was the text of the Old Testament actually written? The book offers fresh, sometimes unsettling, perspectives on the Bible and its history.
