Harper's Encyclopedia of Bible Lifeby Madeline S
Synopses & Reviews
Here is the ultimate resource on the day to day life of the people who inhabit the pages of the Bible: priests and sailors, musicians and mourners, scribes and craftsmen.
A major reference of its kind, this book has been completely revised and updated to incorporate recent archaeological and historical data. This indispensable volume contains 74 subjects in 14 sections, 150 illustrations, completely up-to-date bibliography, scriptural index, charts, maps, diagrams and a general index. The latest findings shed light on agriculture, animals, apparel, nutrition, crafts, business and trade, city life, flowers and plants, homes, music, professions and more.
This book is in non-technical language. It is meant to be of help to the layman rather than the scholar. The Encyclopedia of Bible Life will prove to be informative, stimulating, and useful.
