Scripture speaks of miracles wrought through relics: a dead man was raised when Elisha s bones touched him, and the clothing of Jesus and His apostles healed the sick. In the early Church, Masses were celebrated over the bones of the martyrs, and phials of their blood have effected countless miracles. Direct successors of the Apostles themselves speak of venerating relics; Church Fathers encourage it; throughout the ages of Catholic legacy, relics of the saints are always present.The Church takes diligent care in preserving and documenting the authenticity of her relics. Best-selling author Joan Carroll Cruz takes full advantage of these resources. With painstaking research, she exposes the details behind hundreds of the ... more

Come along on a journey back in time and watch the historical events and men of the Bible be proven before your very eyes. Evidences compiled from ancient history and archaeology reveal the accuracy of the Bible.

Ever hear people say that the Bible is just a bunch of made up stories? This book proves otherwise. Evidences compiled from ancient history and archeology reveal the accuracy of the Bible. Evidences for Queen Esther, Mordecai, Agrippa and his sister Bernice, Sergius Paulus, the Plague of Boils on Egypt, the Exodus, the Hebrews, King Joash, King Menahem, Josiah's battle with Necho, Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, the men who tried to kill Jeremiah the prophet, and many others.
In this iconoclastic and provocative work, leading scholars Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman draw on recent archaeological research to present a dramatically revised portrait of ancient Israel and its neighbors. They argue that crucial evidence (or a telling lack of evidence) at digs in Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon suggests that many of the most famous stories in the Bible -- the wanderings of the patriarchs, the Exodus from Egypt, Joshua's conquest of Canaan, and David and Solomon's vast empire -- reflect the world of the later authors rather than actual historical facts.
