The Times of Abraham and the Philistines is Book 2 in an easy-to-read series which explores how history fits with Bible records. In this work author Dr John Osgood examines historical and archaeological evidences and continues to build a compelling case for the reliability and historicity of the Bible's presentation of history. The current Egyptian Chronology, which most academics today accept, is increasingly shown to be bankrupt whilst the Biblical records discussing Abraham and the culture known to us as the Philistines fit exactly with known history.--Back cover.
