Archaeology is still proving to be a soul winner. Through the magazine we have a way to reach people, many of whom are not Christians but are open to the evidence of archaeology and history.

A church magazine featuring the ancient world has arrived in the modern age, launching a digital version for smart phones and tablets.

Archaeological Diggings digital contains extra pictorial material, including short movie clips relating to some features. The 68-page, A4 magazine continues to be available by subscription and on news stands in the United States and Canada, as well as Australia.

The magazine was independently published by Pastor David Down until being acquired by Adventist Media Network in 2013. Being published by the Church has led to positive developments like the new digital version, as well as a closer relationship with the Institute of Public Evangelism (IPE), which builds many of its presentations on an archaeological base. IPE director, Pastor Gary Webster, is also editor of Diggings, and has led Diggings-sponsored tours to biblical sites of the Middle East (the next in September). 

“Archaeology is still proving to be a soul winner,” Pastor Webster said. “Through the magazine we have a way to reach people, many of whom are not Christians but are open to the evidence of archaeology and history.”
