Imagine being able to walk the streets of Abraham's birthplace, to visit the residents of David's united kingdom, to adjust to life in Babylonian captivity, or to travel the roads of Palestine amid the latest buzz about the carpenter's son from Nazareth.
Arranged in biblical order, this valuable Bible study companion takes you from the earliest recorded civilizations in history through the end of the first Christian century, helping you to put the Bible into its cultural context. For each of the twenty times and places in biblical history, you'll discover how everyday life was affected by geography, government, warfare, housing, diet, dress, family, religion, work, travel, commerce, and so many other things. Rather than blurring all the lands and cultures of the Bible into a single, inaccurate "Bible time," this volume distinguishes the way life differed from period to period and place to place.
- presented in easy-to-grasp language written for the layperson rather than the scholar
