Author: Howard F. Vos

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.

Additional features:

  • presented in
    easy-to-grasp language written for the layperson rather than the scholar
  • thoroughly illustrated and hundreds of black and white photographs
  • sidebars provide even more interesting detail about aspects of
    ancient cultures that illuminate the Bible
