Testimonial

About As Far As You Can:

“Loved this novella! I was able to read it in basically one sitting, only took couple hours. I read the sample given for kindle very quickly and couldn’t wait to get the book. Then I didn’t want to put it down! I rarely take time to read for pleasure anymore because I have to read so much work related materials, but I loved the historical setting and the plot twists. So fun! Write some more please!”

(Jules)

“An excellent read. The story is historical fiction that takes place close to 2,000 years ago in an unfamiliar culture, but somehow the characters are still relatable. I was locked-in from the very first chapter. Highly recommend.”

(Rich Binegar)

“In a clear and engaging writing style, David A. Fiensy explains the uses and abuses of archaeology with examples from both the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament. Reading his guided tour of an ancient Israelite house is almost like taking a time machine back into the Iron Age and living with an Israelite family. This volume will be required reading for my introductory course in archaeology and the Bible.”

(Professor Ralph Hawkins)

“Insights from Archaeology succeeds in doing what it sets out to do: it explains what archaeology is, what it is not, and how it can help us better understand the Bible and its world. Fiensy is a great scholar and a wonderful writer. This concise book is well worth the read.”

(Professor Craig Evans)

“Fiensy has given us what we want in an introductory volume on archaeology and the Gospels. Not only does this book belong in institutional libraries, it also should find its way onto the shelves of seminary and university students and the professors who teach them.”

(Professor James Riley Strange)
