Program History:

THE BOOK & THE SPADE has been
produced since 1983 in Madison,Wisconsin,
where Gordon Govier was for many years an
award-winning radio news director.
...Dr. Keith Schoville, professor emeritus

at the University of Wisconsin, was co-host
of the program for 30 years, and
retired from the program in 2013. He
taught Biblical Archaeology in the Dept.
of Hebrew and Semitic Studies, was the
author of the textbook BIBLICAL
ARCHAEOLOGY IN FOCUS, and
a past president of the Near East
Archaeological Society.
...Over the past 30+ years, THE BOOK &

THE SPADE has talked with nearly
300 archaeologists and Bible scholars
about their work in the field, and visited
many of these sites on our BOOK & THE
SPADE tours. Listeners have gained new
understanding of how Biblical research is
done and realized anew Archaeology is
"the only source of new facts about the
Bible and the Biblical world."

THE BOOK & THE SPADE is available
by subscription, at $30/year,
with CD's containing the latest five programs
mailed on roughly a monthly basis.
