The cities of Jerusalem, Babylon, and Bethlehem were instrumental to the creation of the Bible. The presentation will offer an exciting adventure through time that brings the Bible to life. Illustrations will include artifacts, dig sites, and ruins taken from a far-reaching journey from the battlegrounds of Megiddo to the Grotto of the Nativity, from the towering Acropolis of Athens to the caves in Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.
ROBERT CARGILL is Assistant Professor, Judaism and Christianity, at the University of Iowa and Editor, Biblical Archaeology Review. Dr. Cargill recently published The Cities that Built the Bible. He has also done extensive work in television, appearing as an expert and hosting the NatGeo documentary Writing the Dead Sea Scrolls. He is a member of the Society of Biblical Literature, American Schools of Oriental Research, Biblical Archaeology Society, Archaeological Institute of America, American Humanist Association, American Mensa, and the American Civil Liberties Union.
