technical information on the world of the Hebrew Bible and New
Testament from 2000 BC to approximately AD 600.

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.
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 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
