A BRIEF BUT POWERFUL SUMMARY OF WHY THE BIBLE PROVIDES AN ACCURATE HISTORY

Does the Septuagint provide confirmation or contradiction to Hebrew Old Testament history?


In writing REBOOTING THE BIBLE, some might suppose I am arguing that the Bible makes historical errors and therefore needs to be scrubbed of inaccuracies. That is the opposite of my message. In fact, the Septuagint is a witness that can correct any minor mistakes that have been made in the Masoretic text.

INTRODUCTION — ANTIQUITY REANIMATED: Exploding Modern Myths About the Ancient Past

I am hoping that my readers and followers may have been wondering what I’ve been up to and why I haven’t been as dutiful in posting new articles as per usual.  Of course, the answer is that I’m researching and writing the next book.  I’d like to present a draft of the first element of the new book, its Introduction.  Many have requested that the next book should be REVISING REALITY: Volume 2.  Actually, this book needs to come first.  It will be in the same spirit and of the same mindset as RR, Volume 1.
