A Delightful Intellectual Snack Jun 15, 2008
This book is hardly a weighty academic tome. On the contrary, it is an easy-to-sample, beautifully designed and printed little overview of things, great and trivial, at the time Jesus lived. Do not expect to be profoundly educated by this book. Do expect to be entertained and to learn.
Too little too many Oct 25, 2007
I love to look at picture books and use my imagination, but there has to be more information and a theme or plot to get my interest. Book is too small, illustrations are good but leaves too much for the imagination. It was created to sell, do not expect a revelation or a true meaning for the book. I supposed that you can let your imagination fill in the missing chapters. I say it is not worth the money but to some it is worth every penny. It all depends on what you want the book to say. It is hard to say not to buy it but think before you do.
GOOD BASIC INFORMATION Jul 4, 2007
MY FAMILY REALLY ENJOYED THE PICTURES AND HISTORICAL CONTENT. ENOUGH INFORMATION FOR ALL AGES TO ENJOY. I HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED HISTORY AND ON THIS ALONE WAS VERY INTERESTING, THE PRESENTATION WAS ALSO EASY FOR THE YOUNGER MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY TO UNDERSTAND. A VALUED PART OF OUR BIBICAL LIBRARY.

worthwhile Dec 3, 2005
This is a delightful book to have in a collection of Bible study resources. It is a brief survey of interesting aspects of life in Biblical times with full page illustrations. The drawings are a powerful tool for comprehending a land and lifestyle that is foriegn to us and helps set the scenes of the Bible with context.
The text of the book is brief, but informative. The first chapter of the book describing the political backround of the gospels is first rate; the best summary I've ever read on this complicated subject. Sorting out the political dynamics within Judea as well as the Roman political intrigues, and how they clash is the only way to fully understand the gospel.
This book is worthwhile because it has something for everybody. You could use it to teach young kids as well as adults, and it is also an enjoyable read.
