Most Bible dictionaries on the market miss a number of cultural and sociological issues of interest to the study of the Scriptures. The Dictionary of Daily Life in Biblical and Post-Biblical Antiquity aims to fill this void. Written and edited by a world-class historian and a highly respected biblical scholar, with contributions by many others, this unique reference work provides background cultural and technical information on the world of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament from 2000 BC to approximately AD 600.
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 from O through Z, including: Plants & Flowers, Slavery, Taxation, Textiles, Viticulture, Wealth & Poverty, Weapons, Widows & Orphans, Wild Animals & Hunting, and 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
