Reviews - What do customers think about New Manners & Customs Of The Bible?
All Around Good Jun 11, 2001
Though there may be a mistake or error here or there; they are not so serious as to get the student of the Bible into serious doctrinal error. For the most part this book will be a big help for young and old readers alike. As with any dictionary or encyclopedia the infomration is general but often very revealing. This book will be a "cap-filler", as one publisher once put it, in your personal reference library.
there are much better antiquity books Mar 21, 1998
This book has many errors, and displays them proudly. It seems to support many misconceptions in people have about the Bible. While claiming to explain what terms in the Bible actually mean, it actually distorts the meaning. For example, it talks about the verse in mark about the camel going through the eye of the needle, and explains how there was a gate called "the needles eye" in Jerusalem. While many laymen believe this, this just ain't so. There has never been any substantial evidence to back up this claim.
If one is interested in a book like this, I suggest a book translated from German titled "What the Bible Really Says" or "The Oxford Companion to the Bible." Leave Freeman's book on the shelf.
The best overall cultural background book that anyone needs! Sep 19, 1997
Out of the 4 or 5 books on Bible manners and customs that reside in my small home library, this book is most definately the best and most used. Freeman presents insightful and relevant cultural background to almost every important verse in every book of the Bible. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to be purchased by anyone remotely interested in the manners and customs of Bible times. It is a real winner and should be in everyone's library
