Tall-el Hammam with Eric Metaxas, Skip Heitzig, and Steve Collins


ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO— With each turn of the archeologist’s spade, the Bible becomes clearer. Dr. Steven Collins of Veritas International University and the Tall el-Hammam Excavation Project is living proof of this fact.  Over the course of many years, Dr. Collins has led a team of experts in Jordan, unearthing evidence that Tall el-Hammam is the ancient city of Sodom.  Dr. Collins scientific work has been featured on National Geographic, and Howard Books, a division of Simon & Schuster,  has published an account of of his findings in Discovering the City of Sodom.

Celebration Banquet

On Friday, January 17th, Dr. Steven Collins is joined by a host of Christian leaders to celebrate the release of his newest book (co-authored by Dr. Joseph Holden), The Harvest Handbook of Bible Lands.   Accompanying Dr. Collins at the event will be author, radio and TV host, Eric Metaxas, comedian Brad Stine, and Pastor Skip Heitzig. Together, they will uphold the historicity of the Bible by looking at the history-changing discoveries found at Tall el-Hamman.

The Harvest Handbook of Bible Lands

The celebration banquet will be held at the Albuquerque Marriott Pyramid, located at 5151 San Francisco Rd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87109.

The Harvest Handbook of Bible Lands

Concerning The Harvest Handbook of Bible Lands, Dr. Gary Byers writes,“The Harvest Handbook of Bible Lands is a great tool for all pastors and Bible teachers as well as interested lay people. It should be required reading for every undergraduate and graduate student of the Bible and the library of any institution where the Bible is taught should have at least one copy of this book on its shelves.”
