Book Talk, Discussion on Mysteries of the Bible: Fact or Fiction

The College of Southern Maryland and the Southern Maryland Women’s League present author and scholar Dr. Eric Cline Oct. 6 on CSM’s La Plata Campus for a free book talk and discussion about his latest work “From Eden to Exile: Unraveling Mysteries of the Bible.”

Cline, chair of the department of classical and semitic languages and literatures at The George Washington University, holds a joint appointment as associate professor in both the classics/semitics and the anthropology departments.  He is an active archaeologist with 23 seasons of excavation and survey experience in Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Cyprus, Greece, Crete and the United States.  At the book talk, Cline will discuss his search to separate truth from fiction regarding several biblical mysteries such as the great flood and Noah’s Ark, the locations of Sodom and Gomorrah, and the Ark of the Covenant. 

The book talk is the second collaboration between CSM and the Southern Maryland Women’s League to bring nationally recognized authors to Southern Maryland.  “The collaborations between SMWL and CSM assist in providing our community with local access to noted authors,” said Paula Martino, a charter member of the Southern Maryland Women’s League.  “We hope to have many more opportunities like this in the future,” she said.

The book talk will be held in the Center for Business and Industry Building, Room BI-113 and will start at 7 p.m.  For information call 301-934-7703 or visit www.csmd.edu.
