Documentary: The Bible Unearthed

This is an interesting video.  I wonder how much of it is true.

I've heard that Professor Finkelstein is somewhat of a "lightening rod" for controversy.  Some call him a biblical minimalist.  However, he denies that he is one.

I appreciated the ending of the documentary.  After painting a picture of early Israelite history that is vastly different than the one painted in the Torah, it ends on a hopeful note.  

By the way, I'd like to stay more updated on the current status of biblical archeology.  It would be nice to find some solid RSS feeds of quality, relevant information.
