    This is not the same author as New Test. I found this to be frustrating...beware. Instead of insightful teachings into Biblical culture...and how the verse and persons in the Bible relate to this culture...in most instances it leaves the verses entirely and goes into other religious myths....Bible characters, perspectives and insights into the culture are replaced with what other religions believe. If I wanted other religions I would not be studying the Bible as Gods Word. The format is not ebook (as in the New Test. background) but Adobe download ....does not give verse or chapter selections...poor, poor navigation. Would not recommend

    I do wish that this book cited sources for its information. It provides a lot of helpful information, but without citing primary sources, one must trust the authors without any verification.

    This book is not written by the same author as its New Testament counterpart. It goes through almost every verse, but offers little insight into the culture or language. It has a lot of other countries mythologies. Beware as you read this, because it also has unmarked opinions, many of them questionable or wrong.

    This book goes into GREAT detail for the background of Biblical times. A great help for discovering the geography, culture, and history of Biblical people and places.

    A good book for theologians but not too useful for lay people,I would recommend it to my pastor.
