University of Northern Iowa
History at Trinity Southwest University, Albuquerque, New
Mexico. Dr. Collins has been researching
and lecturing in the field of Near Eastern archaeology and biblical studies for
more than 30 years. His background as a field archaeologist and Bible scholar
gives him a commanding grasp of the issues involved in researching the nature
of the biblical record from both the historical and scientific perspectives.
Currently Chief Archaeologist and Director of the Tall el-Hammam Excavation
Project in Jordan, his rigorous investigation into the location of biblical
Sodom is the subject of his book, Discovering
the City of Sodom: The Fascinating, True Account of the Discovery of the Old
Testament's Most Infamous City (Howard Books/Simon & Schuster). He
lectures widely, and appears frequently on national and international
television and radio programs. From the museums and libraries of Europe, to the
high plateaus of Asia Minor, to the banks of the Nile, to the environs of
ancient Jerusalem, to his extensive exploration and excavations in the southern
Jordan Valley, Dr. Collins continues on the leading edge of archaeological
research into the biblical world.
