To Quote from this book:
"AN EXCITING IN-DEPTH BIBLE-STUDY PROGRAM -- INTRODUCING THE CULTURAL CONTEXT OF THE OLD TESTAMENT is an invitation to learn the Mediterranean culture of our ancestors in the faith in order to understand the Bible. This excellent Bible-study workbook for adults concentrates on Wisdom literature and guides readers through cross-cultural interpretation as it contrasts middle-class United States cultural values with those of the Mediterranean world."
As described, this book is a "program" ... and, "intended for the serious Bible student and will challenge the advanced learner."
Don C. Benjamin, Ph.D, Dept of Religious Studies, Rice University, quotes (on the back cover): "Finally, here is a study guide by a Catholic scholar and educator who understands both the Bible in its world and today's readers in theirs! ... What a wonderful service he provides to all those who set aside quality time to study the Bible together."
John Pilch is one of the best biblical/scriptural scholars to read, in my opinion. His "Cultural" Series of books that follow the Liturgical Cycle, A, B and C are equal examples of his wonderful sharing. Pilch is one of a kind, and THIS book is a classic!
Studying as an individual or as a group, "Introducing the Cultural Context of the Old Testament" should be must reading. It doesn't get any better than this.
