Actually--the newer books just give MORE credence and verification--to much of what was written in the older books!!<quoted text>
Yeah, the newer books about Israel and Judea are telling it like it is instead of trying to fit archaeology into a Biblical mode. The magical Exodus never happened.
Pretty soon there will be nothing left of the Pentateuch as it is disproven now.
(but you have to READ these types books FIRST, to realize that!)
