Articles explain details of domestic life, technology, culture, laws, and religious practices, and are accompanied by extensive bibliographic material for further exploration. Articles range 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.
This thid volume covers around 25 topics including: incense, insects, jewelry, kisses and embraces, laws and crimes, libraries and books, magic, marriage, mining, and many more.

"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
"This is not your standard Bible dictionary, but one that focuses on aspects of daily life in Bible times, addressing interesting and sometimes puzzling topics that are often overlooked in other encyclopedias. I highly recommend the Dictionary of Daily Life in Biblical & Post-Biblical Antiquity and will be giving it 'shout-outs' in my classes in the years to come."
-- James K. Hoffmeier, Professor of Old Testament and Near Eastern Archaeology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
