The New ESV Archaeology Study Bible, part 2

With John Currid

The new ESV Archaeology Study Bible, published by Crossway, joins the NIV Archaeology Study Bible published about a dozen years ago by Zondervan. In these two programs we talk with one of the main editors, John Currid, of Reformed Theological Seminary, about how the project came together, what's unique about this particular volume, and about some of his own archaeological experiences along the north shore of the Sea of Galilee, and along the Mediterranean Coast at ancient Carthage.
