Willie E. Dye, Ph.D., a native of Texas has always had a curiosity and fascination with people and the world around him, showing a great interest in History and Geography since early childhood. That, combined with a love for God and humanity, as well as a burning quest for true knowledge, it is no surprise then that he is now in the field of Biblical Archaeology. He travels the world marveling at its wonders, studying and digging up evidence – from Greece to Mexico and points in between – which confirms the belief that a perfect design, indeed, requires a perfect Designer. Through his work, Dr. Dye not only satisfies a youthful curiosity about people, their different cultures, habits and struggles, but essentially he confirms God’s Word, providing evidence that He is Creator of all.
