'The importance of Jerusalem in biblical times as well as subsequent eras cannot be challenged, rendering a reliable, current, and understandable textbook on its archaeology and history a virtual necessity. The Archaeology of the Jerusalem Area is such a book.
"The approach to this study", writes the author, "is basically chronological, covering the archaeological history of the Jerusalem area from the earliest times to our modern day. While the archaeological evidence is stressed, care is taken to fill in the picture with historical details gathered from the Bible and other literary source".
Plentiful maps, photographs, and sketches illustrated the archaeological data. Footnotes and a select bibliography guide the student to additional information available on various aspects of the subject.'
