Randy McCracken recently interviewed me. What is it like to be on a dig? What are the most difficult and rewarding parts of that experience? What is the most exciting thing I’ve ever discovered? Read about these things and more, if so inclined, right here.
An excerpt from the interview:
If you want a deeper understanding of the Bible and its world, find a way to get yourself on a dig, even if just for a couple of weeks. It will give you understanding and insights that no book can provide. You will benefit from it the rest of your life, along with others you teach or influence. I’ve excavated with people as young as 13, with others who are in their 70’s, and with every age in between. Most of the best digs are open for people just like you. The sooner you go, the longer – and greater – the benefit will be.
I am preparing to be with the 2016 Lachish expedition for two weeks next summer. Would you like to join me?
