Product Description

The Dictionary of Daily Life in Biblical & Post-Biblical Antiquity is a unique reference work that provides background cultural and technical information on the world of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament from 4000 BC to approximately AD 600.

Previously published in four individual paperback volumes, this one-volume hardcover edition covers topics from A-Z. This dictionary casts light on the culture, technology, history, and politics of the periods of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament.

Written and edited by a world-class historian and a highly respected biblical scholar, with contributions by many others, this unique reference work explains details of domestic life, technology, culture, laws, and religious practices, with extensive bibliographic material for further exploration. There are 115 articles ranging from 5-20 pages long. Scholars, pastors, and students (and their teachers) will find this to be a useful resource for biblical study, exegesis, and sermon preparation.

Editorial Reviews

"This wonderful resource is much more than a dictionary. It is a compendium of substantive essays on numerous facets of daily life in the ancient world. I am frequently asked by pastors and students for recommendations on books that illuminate the manners, customs, and cultural practices of the biblical world. Now I have the ideal set of books to recommend."

--Clinton E. Arnold, Dean and Professor of New Testament, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

    These books are fantastic. Easy reading for a lay person. Each topic broken down in five easy to read sections. More books of resources are at the end of EACH TOPIC, as well as cross referenced to other topics.

    The five sections make it easy to read at short periods of time, or in my case, reading for four hours while having treatments at the hospital.

    Great information for teachers, but happy to find something chock full for easy reading.

    Finally, this wonderful set is complete in four volumes. It took years to put together and the volumes have been released over the course of a couple years or so, but now this fun resource edited by the outstanding scholars Edwin Yamauchi and Marvin Wilson is available to us.

    Why secure this set compared to so many others on the market? It's really two things: 1) the unique approach, and 2) the valuable, scholarly, and well-written entries.

    This dictionary did not limit itself to Bible words only, but to subjects as they occur to us. The value there is making accessible Bible times in a way that overcomes our cultural biases. Think of something that you would really like to know and I suspect you will find an entry on it.

    You may read a line that you disagree with, but there's enough depth to really wrestle with the subject. Bibliographies will chart you a course for further study, though I doubt you will need it.

    This set isn't designed as a visual resource as is the current rage, but the text here will teach what you are really looking for.

    This set is in paperback (it can hold its own with its big hardback competitors too) and so its retail price is much more in line with what an individual student might pay. Those other sets only end up in libraries.

    I guarantee you will enjoy and learn from this set!

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
