From the 1955 Intro: "Thanks to findings of the archaeologists many of the Biblical narratives can be better understood now than ever before. There are, of course, theological insights which can only be dealt with in terms of the Word of God. But as Professor Andre Parrot, the world-famous French archaeologist, has said: 'How can we understand the Word, unless we see it in its proper chronological, historical and geographical setting?'"
