How many times have you heard the accusations claiming the Bible cannot possibly be true due to all the historical inaccuracies? Well, along comes archaeology which throws dramatic light on the biblical record. As you turn over the soil of history, much evidence springs forth authenticating the people, places and events of Scripture. So much of this has been documented and bound in a powerful book, ‘Evidence for the Bible’.
Joining Jim to discuss this book and what it covers was Clive Anderson. Clive is a Christian minister from the UK and author of numerous books and articles on historical and biblical subjects including the prophet Nahum and Sennacherib of Assyria. He’s co-authored the popular, ‘Through the British Museum with the Bible’ with Brian Edwards. He is also author of ‘Travel with C.H. Spurgeon’ and also books on travel to Israel and Egypt. Clive regularly leads tours of the British Museum and Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Italy and Greece. Before entering Christian ministry he was a civil/structural engineering draughtsman.
This Crosstalk is packed with information and here’s a small sample from the book that Clive shared with listeners:
