Review by  forthcoming.


Tracing its history from an independent discipline under the umbrella of archaeology to an interdisciplinary dialogue between archaeology and biblical studies, Layer by Layer: A Primer on Biblical Archaeology explores what biblical archaeology was when it began 200 years ago, why it became controversial, and what it is today. Ellen White offers a compelling case for the dialogue between archaeology and biblical studies by introducing the methodology and goals of each discipline and demonstrating the mutual benefit of their relationship. With a glossary, study questions, recommendations for additional reading, and dozens of images, graphs, and maps, Layer by Layersuccessfully equips students—regardless of background or familiarity with this subject—to understand this exciting field.
