"The first edition of this classic was already a handy tool for learning that combines social models with material evidence of the world of Jesus. I have used it and will continue to use it for classes on New Testament and Social World. Now with expanded chapters, reading guides and bibliographies, and with clearer highlighting of key terms and thoughtful responses to earlier critiques, the classic is better than ever." Carolyn Osiek, Professor of New Testament, Brite Divinity School
"This book has been admirably conceived and developed to assist the ordinary Bible reader in narrowing the cultural distance between the world of Jesus and our own. Both authors are expert teachers, proven researchers, and clear articulators of what they know so well: the society of Palestine in the Time of Jesus..." Bruce J. Malina, Creighton University
