This book makes the Bible come alive. It is the #1 constant source I turn to when I want to understand the "behind the scenes" stories of the people, regions, cities, cultures, activities, etc. of biblical times. Some of the chapters are: Land of the Bible, Home and Family Life, Work and Society, Nations and Peoples. The photographs and illustrations help bring that ancient world more into focus and alive once again.
