Overview

The most comprehensive and readable guide to discovering how the people of the Bible really lived! 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 put the Bible into its cultural context. For each of twenty times and places in biblical history, you'll discover how everyday life was affected by: geography, government, warfare, housing, diet and a host of other influences.

Rather than blurring all the lands and cultures of the Bible into a single, inaccurate "Bible time," this volume distinguishes the ways life differed from period to period and place to place. The result is the most complete, precise, and accurate description available of how Bible people really lived. The entire book is presented in easy-to-grasp language that can be enjoyed by the everyday reader or the advanced student.
