Description
Ermatinger (Bloomsburg U., Pennsylvania) presents a text for students and general readers on daily life during the New Testament period, mainly in Palestine. Following an introductory overview and a chronological timeline, ten chapters cover the geography and history of the region; the different ethnic groups in the region; nonreligious factors that heavily influenced daily life, including language, art, and Hellenistic culture; worship and temple practices of pre-messianic Judaism; the expectations for the Messiah; trades and professions; rural life and urban life; family life and living conditions; and Rome, its occupation, and the lasting impact of its daily life on the modern world. Illustrated with b&w photographs and reproductions. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
