Aren Maeir notes that the 2013 book by Israel Finkelstein The Forgotten Kingdom: the Archaeology and History of Northern Israel is available right now on line in PDF format.
I do not agree with many of Finkelstein’s conclusions but his data and research are of major importance.
SBL is now offering the book on line in PDF form. I would highly recommend that anyone who is even vaguely interested in any of the topics covered in the volume (archaeology, history, bible, etc.) should download the volume immediately – before whoever put this online changes their mind…
Don’t ask questions – just do it. While it could be that not everyone will agree with everything that is written in the volume – it is TOO important to miss out on this opportunity.
