Check out this sneak preview of the latest issue of Bible and Spade, soon to be delivered to our members and subscribers.

The Fall 2013 issue of Bible and Spade is focused on the 2013 excavation at Khirbet el-Maqatir, Israel, the site ABR believes is the city of Ai found in Joshua 7-8. You will find this issue packed with exciting evidence from our site.

In this power-packed issue, Dr. Scott Stripling introduces the reader to some of our professional staff members who help analyze and process our archaeological finds. Dr. Bryant Wood surveys the discoveries from the 2013 season, culminating in the discovery of a rare Egyptian scarab on the last day of the 2013 season. We also are publishing an article he wrote about misconceptions at Yale concerning the Conquest of Canaan. Gary Byers provides details and background for a domestic house from the Judges period. Dr. Brian Peterson outlines the various lamps we have found in 'The Lamps of Khirbet el-Maqatir.' Finally, Dr. Stripling and Gary Byers write about the amazing building work done by the Byzantines, which includes a monastery complex built at Khirbet el-Maqatir in the fourth century AD.

The ABR staff trusts that Bible and Spade continues to be an edifying blessing to its readers and to the church. Thank you for your support, and most of all, your prayers, as we continue to produce this publication to fulfill the vision set forth by founder Dr. David Livingston, some 45 years ago.
