A NATION BORN by PROFESSOR ADAM ZERTAL
Professor Adam Zertal (1936-2015) was an Israeli Professor of Archaeology at the University of Haifa. He is recognized for discovering Joshua’s (stone) Altar—which Moses commanded the Israelites to build atop Mount Ebal to worship the LORD (Joshua 8). The site is also where the tribes carried out the ceremony of the Blessings and the Curses (Deuteronomy 27-28). Zertal clearly summarizes the long process of his discovery and excavation of the Altar site. He clearly explains his rationale and analysis of the data concerning the truth of a literal entry of the Israelites into the Land of Canaan; the birth of Ancient Israel and the subsequent development of the new nation. A Nation Born is a compelling saga covering more than two decades of Professor Zertal’s life and work in the Heartland of Israel—Judea and Samaria. This is as much a professional record as it is a personal memoir of his adventures and discoveries, including triumphs and challenges.
