Israel Finkelstein is director of the Sonia and Marco Nadler Institute of Archaeology at Tel Aviv University.
Finkelstein and Silberman, both scholars of archaeology, purport to answer fundamental questions posed by the Bible--specifically, to discover how accurate biblical descriptions of major events such as the Exodus and the reign of David were. Their research uses advancements in biblical archaeology, and carries with it a unique interpretation of the sacred text.
