I had the privilege of being interviewed on my last tour by Gordon Govier. Gordon had his own group of people traveling with him on our tour. Serving as a biblical archaeology correspondent for Christianity Today and editor of ARTIFAX magazine (see below), he offers weekly news and interviews focusing on the latest discoveries and developments in biblical archaeology on his web site – The Book & the Spade.
Gordon is quite knowledgable about the archaeological world of the Bible, and has interviewed leading archaeologists for years! As God leads, together we hope to lead an Israel tour together. I highly recommend visiting his web site and subscribing to the ARTIFAX magazine. There is not another periodical that reports and compiles the archaeological findings than this.
Here is the 15 minute audio recording of the interview. We discussed not only issues of biblical archaeology, but also the value of experiencing Israel firsthand. This interview took place in the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, an appropriate setting to talk about the transformational change that comes for people who encounter God in the land of the Bible!

Each issue of ARTIFAX contains a digest which reviews newspaper, magazine and wire service articles dealing with Biblical Archaeology, the Ancient Near East and related religious news. ARTIFAX only reviews these articles and does not vouch for their accuracy. Because of its focus on breaking news in Biblical Archaeology, ARTIFAX is a good complement to other publications in the field. ARTIFAX also includes one or two original articles in each issue.
