Biblical Archaeology Review (BAR) is a publication that seeks to connect the academic study of archaeology to a broad general audience seeking to understand the world of the Bible and the Near and Middle East (Syro-Palestine and/or the Levant). Covering both the Old and New Testaments, BAR presents the latest discoveries and controversies in archaeology. BAR's writers include leading scholars and researchers. BAR is published by the non-denominational Biblical Archaeology Society and edited by the Society's founder Hershel Shanks. Biblical Archaeology Review is the largest paid-circulation magazine in the field of archaeology, thanks to its reader-friendly approach. BAR publishes the views of a wide variety of archaeological viewpoints. For example, BAR has published such authors as Lawrence Stager, Kenneth Kitchen, Alan Millard, William Dever, Israel Finkelstein, and Bryant G. Wood.

The story of the so-called "James Ossuary" was first published in the pages of Biblical Archaeology Review; it was discussed by founding editor Hershel Shanks and Ben Witherington III in "The Brother of Jesus: The Dramatic Story & Significance of the First Archaeological Link to Jesus & His Family" (2003).

Other journals published by the Society have included Bible Review (1985-2005), merged into Biblical Archaeology Review after 2005, and Archaeology Odyssey (1998-2006).
