Understanding biblical people's cultural context is an important skill in biblical literacy. Why were certain animals not okay to eat? Why are people in the Bible always sacrificing animals? What did they use for money, and what did people do for a living? Dr. Martin Albl, a gifted biblical teacher and writer, is clear and to-the-point in addressing these topics and more. His mini-encyclopedia on biblical life and times will raise your scriptural knowledge and understanding to the next level!
Two comprehensive indexes help readers identify topics of interest that would send them to biblical passages, or if they are studying a particular passage, they can find relevant articles.
