By: James K. Hoffmeier (author)Paperback
More than 4 weeks availability
Hoffmeier examines the Wilderness narratives of Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers. As director of the North Sinai Archaeological Project, the author has led several excavations that have uncovered important new evidence supporting the Wilderness narratives, including a major New Kingdom fort at Tell el-Borg that was occupied during the Israelite exodus. Hoffmeier employs these archaeological findings to shed new light on the route of the exodus from Egypt. Ancient Israel in Sinai brings the Wilderness tradition to the forefront and makes a case for its authenticity based on solid evidence and intelligent analysis.
Hoffmeier is Professor of Old Testament and Near Eastern Archaeology, Trinity International University. He is the author of Israel in Egypt (OUP 1997).
