Albright – “dean of biblical archaeologists”

The Historical Handbook of Major Biblical Interpreters begins the entry on William F. Albright with these words:

Called the dean of biblical archaeologists in his last decades, William Foxwell Albright was also to become a well-known biblical interpreter.

Todd Bolen  calls attention to a new appreciation of William F. Albright by Thomas Levy and David Noel Freedman at The Bible and Interpretation. You may read Todd’s comments on The Legacy of William F. Albright at his Bible Places Blog. All of this is good reading.
