  4. The Cultural World of the Bible, Fourth Edition: An Illustrated Guide to Manners and Customs

Publisher's Description

The authors of the Bible routinely employed mention of manners and customs from the ancient world in their inspired writing, fully intending that the Lord would change readers with these images. But modern readers often miss the full literal and figurative meaning of biblical imagery due to the distance in time and experience between the world of today and the world of the Bible. This fully illustrated guide aims to restore clarity and vitality to these portions of God's Word in order to help readers grasp the full meaning of Scripture. For example, the entry on anointing defines the nature of this act and the connotations associated with it before illustrating how the biblical authors use the act of anointing in their communication with us--communication that reaches its full maturity in Jesus, the Anointed One. Understanding manners and customs like anointing enriches our experience of reading the Bible--and even helps us correctly interpret it.

This colorful guide clearly and succinctly introduces modern readers to daily life in Bible times. The cultural practices of the past are fascinating on their own, but even more so as they help us grasp the full meaning of Scripture.

    This book has an excellent range of information, as far as it goes. Great photos and art selections. This is in no way an academic book, it's for the rest of us, it delivers what it promises.

    I think understanding the culture of the people in the Bible is fundamental to understanding the concepts of the Bible. This book is well-organized and easily read. My husband and I are using it for our morning devotions. J. Carl Laney, a seminar professor at Western Seminary said in his blog, "the most well-researched, and up to date resource available." I could not agree more.
