Synopsis: Translated from the German by Werner Keller this exploration of the Bible's historic authenticity began in 1950 when the author, in the course of his journalistic career, became aware of the reports of Professors Parrot and Schaeffeer on their excavations at Mari and Ugarit. Further investigation convinced him that the Bible contains much historic , military and geographical truth and is, as he says in the introduction, “ a book about things which actually happened”
