The World of the Bible

The World of the Bible Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Bible is often best understood when it is properly placed in the cultural and social context in which it was written. To this end, this extensive reference explores the culture of the Israelites and the ancient nations that surrounded and influenced them. The time periods covered include the Bronze Age of Palestine; the Age of Empires; the Dawn of the Modern World; and the history, cultures, and beliefs of such civilizations as the Canaanites, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, ancient Greeks and ancient Romans. Comprehensive and enlightening, this is a thorough history that is ideal for both Biblical studies and general historians.

About the Author

John Drane is a professor of New Testament at the Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California, and the author of several books, including After McDonaldization, Introducing the Bible, Introducing the New Testament, and Introducing the Old Testament.
