The Baker Illustrated Guide to Everyday Life in Bible Times

Full Product Description

The authors of the Bible routinely employed mention of manners and customs from the ancient world in their inspired writing, fully intending that the Lord would change readers with these images.

But modern readers often miss the full literal and figurative meaning of biblical imagery due to the distance in time and experience between the world of today and the world of the Bible. This fully illustrated guide aims to restore clarity and vitality to these portions of God’s Word in order to help readers grasp the full meaning of Scripture.

For example, the entry on anointing defines the nature of this act and the connotations associated with it before illustrating how the biblical authors use the act of anointing in their communication with us—communication that reaches its full maturity in Jesus, the Anointed One.

Author John A. Beck (PhD, Trinity International University) has taught courses in Hebrew and Old Testament at various colleges and universities for the past 16 years. He currently is an adjunct faculty member at Jerusalem University College in Israel. His articles have appeared in several journals.

Beck is also the author of 'The Land of Milk and Honey: An Introduction to the Geography of Israel', as well as 'God as Storyteller: Seeking Meaning in Biblical Narrative'.

The author knows that understanding manners and customs like anointing enriches our experience of reading the Bible - and even helps us correctly interpret it.

This colourful guide clearly and succinctly introduces modern readers to daily life in Bible times. The cultural practices of the past are fascinating on their own, but even more so as they help us grasp the full meaning of Scripture.
