"Little by little, one city after another, one civilization after another, one culture after another, whose memories were enshrined only in the Bible, were restored to their proper places in ancient history by the studies of archaeologists... Contemporary records of biblical events emphasized by contrast and comparison . . . Nowhere has archaeological discovery refuted the Bible as history."
-John Elder "Prophets, Idols and Diggers" (New York: Bobbs Merrill, 1960) p. 16
