Ancient Israel in Sinai

The Evidence for the Authenticity of the Wilderness Tradition

James Hoffmeier

  • Follow-up to Hoffmeier's successful Israel in Egypt (OUP, 1997)
  • Author has led several excavations that have uncovered important new evidence supporting the Wilderness narratives.
  • Offers an intelligent rebuttal to those who have sought to locate Mount Sinai in northern Arabia (and not in the Sinai peninsula as traditionally thought).
  • Makes a strong case for the Wilderness tradition's authenticity based on solid evidence and intelligent analysis.
