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.
"I read it from front to back and I'm deeply grateful for all of your work on ARTIFAX. Four issues a year, what a wonderful treat. When it comes, go find a room in your house, lock the door and read it, uninterupted. It is just wonderful."
- Walter C. Kaiser Jr., President Emeritus and Distinguished Professor of Old Testament and Ethics at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
"I always take ARTIFAX magazine with me in Israel. Not only do I read all of the articles but I go and visit some of the sites that are mentioned while I'm there."
- Scott Stripling, Associates for Biblical Research and Houston Baptist University, director of the excavations at Khirbet el-Maqatir and Tell Shiloh.
"Archaeology is the only field of science, in addition to that of experimenting on humans, that requires a license from the government...This is because archaeology must be done carefully and systematically, and can only be done once."
- Archaeologist Ronny Reich, as reported in ARTIFAX, Winter 2000.
