Description

As a professional archaeologist, I found Ms. Sessions' book a delightful teaser. Each chapter begins with an everyday circumstance to which we can relate and then quickly transitions to focus on a biblical topic for which archaeology provides illumination. She writes with a flair and easily engages her readers (I was particularly humored by her word play about the Lachish Reliefs which show No Relief for Lachish!). Many of her conclusions are open to debate and argument--the very nature of academic pursuit--but she recognizes those areas of controversy, while obviously maintaining a very high regard for Scripture. I commend her work as a succulent appetizer for the larger feast of biblical archaeology. Dale W. Manor, Ph.D. Professor of Archaeology and Bible, Harding University Field Director of Tel Beth-Shemesh Excavations, Israel The old saying in archaeology is "absence of evidence is not evidence of absence." This is the motivating message in Jan Sessions' Fables Don't Leave Footprints: there is evidence, and the more we know about it the better we can assure our souls of the truth of the Bible and answer those who have not yet understood how well the Bible tells its story in the context of history. In addition, the only new information coming to us about the Bible comes to us from archaeology. Jan knows there is much to learn from archaeology, and her passion to discover is contagious and reflected on every page. This is a guidebook for all ages that demonstrates that the events, places, and persons in Scripture are real and therefore argues that our faith must be just as real. Follow these footprints; they will lead you to a greater faith! Randall Price, Ph.D. Distinguished Research Professor Executive Director, Center for Judaic Studies Liberty University Jan Sessions' book on Biblical archaeology exhibits lavish pictures and offers cogent narratives on ancient near-eastern artifacts. It will serve as a crash review for those knowledgeable and a genuine eye opener for those uninitiated. It will be of inestimable assistance to those who teach church classes on Biblical archaeology. I have known Jan and her family since her high school years and have always been impressed with her sincere desire to understand and explicate the Biblical record. Thomas H. Olbricht, Ph.D. Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Religion Pepperdine University
