This classic guide to the ancient world is now available in full color
The correct and full interpretation of Scripture often depends on having an understanding of the culture in which the writers of the Bible lived. Recent years have seen a renewed interest in the study of the background of the Old Testament, but unanswered questions, unfamiliar languages, and inaccurate translations make studying biblical history difficult.
R. K. Harrison's Old Testament Times thoroughly explores and explains the characters and events of the Old Testament, revealing the social, political, and cultural forces at work when the Bible was written. Full-color photographs, maps, charts, and illustrations will illuminate the people, places, and events of the time and will help you visualize the ancient world.
An excellent tool for pastors, Bible study groups, and anyone wishing for a better understanding of the context of Scripture, Old Testament Times will help you glean a more accurate interpretation of the Bible.
