Reviews - What do customers think about Illustrated Manners & Custom Of Bible (Repack) S/S?
Best Book Since the Bible Jan 25, 2006
I am a Christian and must admit that I am ashamed at the lack of knowledge that most professing Christians have about their faith. That's just it, so many think that the pursuit of Archaeological evidence is showing a lack of faith. It is rather the contrary. God gave us minds for a reason. This book is highly recommended for solidifying one's faith due to the vast amount of empirical evidence that it relates; from the earliest mentions of the invading "Eberu" (Hebrew) peoples in letters sent from Cannanite princes to Pharoah Amenhotep to unearthed temples of the accursed god of the Philistines. All of the evidence is available. To remain ignorant is a decision.
Excellent Bible Reference Book Oct 4, 2000
Nelson's Bible Manners & Customs is a very solid addition to any serious Bible student's library especially if one seeks a deeper knowledge and understanding of the cultural, economic, and socio-political environment of biblical times. It clearly explains how the people of these times lived and provides valuable information that will expand any student's understanding of the Bible....
New Illustrated Bible Manners & Customs Jul 7, 2000
A good book for your library. The many photographs, illustrations and brief sidenote articles are well layed out to make it an interesting read. It covers life from Abraham to the Roman Empire of Jesus' day. Each chapter is divided into the following parts: The Land, Government, Religion, Warfare, Housing and Furniture, Diet and Foodstuffs, Dress, Family Life, and Work/Travel/Commerce. The only drawback is that it does not contain a comprehensive index for looking up specific topics.
