"A most interesting read and a compelling empirically-based hypothesis that, more convincingly than previous attempts, brings biblical accounts into accord with modern scientifically-derived understanding of the cosmos. If supported by subsequent and exhaustive research, this is not only ground-breaking archaeology but a cautionary narrative for present and future generations. The fate of Tall el-Hammam/Sodom and its impressive, if unheralded, Jordan Valley Middle Bronze Age civilization will eventually be repeated. It's not a matter of 'if' but 'when'." — Malcolm A. LeCompte, Ph.D., retired Associate Professor and former Research Director, Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Research, Elizabeth City State University, Elizabeth City, NC, and cosmic impact researcher.
