"For some, the ideas presented may seem novel or surprising, but this is material that is being discussed in the theology courses found at many Catholic universities."


With the intelligence and skill that one expects to find in shows produced for NOVA, "The Bible's Buried Secrets" provides an accessible introduction to recent scholarship influencing our understanding of the Hebrew Bible. Relying upon the insights of many first-rate scholars, the show presents an absorbing account of the history of the ancient Israelites and their scriptures. For some, the ideas presented may seem novel or surprising, but this is material that is being discussed in the theology courses found at many Catholic universities. I think that NOVA has provided a fine update concerning research in Ancient Near Eastern history and the Bible.
