Besides his tenure in the classroom, Dr. Aling has been Assistant Field Director on two archaeological expeditions to the Valley of the Kings in Egypt.  His book, Egypt and Bible History: From Earliest Times to 1000 BC, argues that archaeology supports the biblical dating of historical events and that these dates are reliable.  He has also published over fifty articles in publications such as Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, The Near East Archaeological Society Bulletin, Bible and Spade, and Artifax.  He is also past president of the Near East Archaeological Society.  In addition, he is a nationally known speaker in universities, seminaries, and churches.
