This week’s offer is Victor H. Matthews’ The Cultural World of the Bible (fourth edition). Here’s the catalog description:
“In this new edition of a successful book (over 120,000 copies sold), now updated throughout, a leading expert on the social world of the Bible offers students a reliable guide to the manners and customs of the ancient world. From what people wore, ate, and built to how they exercised justice, mourned, and viewed family and legal customs, this illustrated introduction helps readers gain valuable cultural background on the biblical world. The attractive, full-color, user-friendly design will appeal to students, while numerous pedagogical features–including fifty photos, sidebars, callouts, maps, charts, a glossary of key terms, chapter outlines, and discussion questions–increase classroom utility. Previously published as Manners and Customs in the Bible.”
