Washington, D.C. : Biblical Archaeology Society, c1992.


This newly revised parallel history of Judaism and Christianity presents the first six centuries in the development of both religions in one understandable volume. This unprecedented book takes readers from the middle of the first century when a distinction between Judaism and Christianity first became apparent to the Arab conquest. More than 65 images enhance the text, many illustrating the most dramatic and important finds discovered in the Holy Land and elsewhere in recent decades. It also includes, for the first time, informative maps detailing the many sites and regions where the shared histories of these two world religions unfolded.
