The following historcial, background information is my contribution
to this web site. The author is an American evangelical Christian.
The reader will perceive my Christian perspective in the essays
which follow. I am a long-term friend of the Jewish people and
supporter of the State of Israel, but have also travelled and
worked in Egypt and other Middle Eastern countries and I know
first hand of God's love for all peoples of the earth.
My professional field of speciality is the application of modern remote sensing and geophysical methods to archaeology. I have been especially interested in the history and archaeology of the Temple Mount since 1974. My own web site library has additional articles which are more theological in nature. I have also provided brief descriptions of modern scientific methods useful in archaeology and also a short report on our 1983 field season in Israel.
For specific information on Jewish preparations for the building of the Third Temple in Jerusalem see The Temple Institute web site.
