Key Facts for the Location of Sodom Student Edition

Just released the Key Facts for the Location of Sodom Student Edition: Navigating the Maze of Arguments. 2014. ISBN-13: 978-1499660241 ISBN-10: 1499660243.

A essential resource for anyone doing research on the Location of the Cities of the Plain or Pentapolis.

Have you ever wondered where Sodom was located? The Bible describes the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19 in terms of fire and brimstone falling from heaven. But what actually happened to these cities? Where are they today? Did they survive the cataclysmic destruction? Two archaeological sites have recently been identified as Sodom, but which is the best candidate for the location of Sodom: Tall el-Hammâm, at the northern end of the Dead Sea in the Jordan Valley, or Bâb edh-Dhrâ, at the southern end of the Dead Sea in the Ghor? Trying to navigate the maze of arguments can be a daunting task. Graves provides a useful tool for students and other researchers in their quest for the location of this illusive biblical city.

This work provides sixty-two essential facts grouped together in methodological, hermeneutical, geographical, chronological, archaeological, cataclysmal, and geological chapters, which set the stage for further research and consideration. The advantage of such a book is that it provides a collective source of material for students that would otherwise take a long time to assemble or otherwise be inaccessible. Twelve detailed maps, seven charts, tables, and twenty eight photographs are included which will help facilitate understanding of the unfamiliar terrain of the Dead Sea and Jordan Valley. A timeline puts everything into perspective for the dates of the occupation and destruction for each of the ancient sites involved.  A glossary defines technical terms, and extensive footnotes, a bibliography, and reference to a large index of subjects and authors provides an invaluable resource to students for future study.

It is available at CreateSpace eStore, Amazon.com. and at the Liberty Bookstore.
