Lester L. Grabbe is Professor Emeritus of Hebrew Bible and Early Judaism at the University of Hull. His other books include Ancient Israel: What Do We Know and How Do We Know It? (second edition).
"Grabbe asserts that religion and science are not necessarily incompatible and they can exist side by side harmoniously so long as the respective adherents do not poach on the others' territory. His illuminating work will doubtless invite thought and serious discussion by both camps."

"In this wonderful volume Lester Grabbe brings to the table the profound knowledge of a gifted biblical scholar--but a knowledge that is accompanied by pastoral sensitivities. Entirely absent, therefore, are polemics. And that which is present can only be described as erudition and compassion. His Faith and Fossils will build bridges between people on all sides of this hotly debated subject. I heartily recommend it."
