You may have heard a little about archaeology and may have even seen the many articles in the news detailing the discoveries.
Yet you may not know that much about this scientific research field. Studying history is not the most exciting activity for a majority of people in this world.
They have more pressing concerns which keeps their minds in the present. They do not want to be concerned about the problems that people had 3,000 years ago or even 2,000 years ago.
Although many people are bored with history archaeology can help modern people face their troubles, find the answers they seek as well as help guide their children to be constructive contributing citizens.
The information that the past holds help farmers with their crops get a better yield. That information also helps one adjust their lifestyle to eat better foods for a healthier lifestyle.
Archaeology also helps people live better Christian lives. The people who take the time to read about the past, find that different discoveries build their faith which they then can pass on to their children.
Knowing the answers to little children’s questions go a long way in keeping those same children from walking away from their faith and their families.
What follows is a brief discussion on what takes place in the field of archaeology. There is a lot more to the field than making wonderful discoveries.
In fact, there are a lot of personal agendas at work that would undermine the objectives already stated in this section.
Not every archaeologist is a Christian. That means that the average pastor, church leader, missionary and parents should take the time to familiarize themselves with the field of archaeology.
Too many archaeologists have lost their faith when they looked to archaeology over God to sustain their faith.
Archaeology is not infallible, and it is filled with limitations that hinder it from uncovering all the details of the past.
Then different archaeologists with their own theories often distort the physical evidence they uncover and try to have it say what they want it to say.
It is up to the believer to take the initiative and learn about the field of archaeology so they can address controversies, unbelievers’ arguments and their own children’s questions
This book gives you an overview of what goes on in the realm of archaeological work. It is written to help the reader become more aware of what goes on in the field and helps them be more wary when someone says the events of the Bible did not take place.
It is also written so that the unwary believer can be more alert and protect their own faith when unbelieving archaeologists declare the Bible wrong.
God wants his people to gain knowledge, but that knowledge has to be the truth. God’s people are not to be repeating misinformation nor take any information blindly.
They need to be equipped to handle archaeological discoveries as God would want. The way to do that is to follow God’s word over science.
You can’t do that if you do not know much about the field of archaeology as it is one tool that is used to mislead God’s people and call their faith a lie.
Just so you know, archaeology actually supports the Bible, contrary to what many archaeologists and other unbelievers claim.
Keep that in mind as you read these pages.
