His examples are crystal clear. I recommend it to you." The Baptist Sunday School Board, Southern Baptist Convention well described this classic book: "Very interesting and helpful information, which the Ordinary American would never discover. This book acquaints the reader with Eastern customs, prevalent in Scriptures.

Customs which are discussed, together with appropriate Scriptures, are: Marriage, the Salt Covenant, Childbirth, the Rearing of Children, Death and Burials, Laws and Justice, The Woman at the Well, Plants and Trees, Agriculture and Herding, Idioms, Sacrifices, and the Canopy. Ministers will find this overflowing with illustration material. Any layman interested in Bible study will profit from this study, and find it not only illuminating but very interesting. Teachers will love this! Every preacher can benefit from it. Recommended." Together published: "I have found an unusual Bible study help in this book, in which Indian Orthodox Bishop K. C. Pillai explains Bible passages in the light of Oriental customs." Rev. Norman Vincent Peale commented about the book: "I have now read your wonderful little book; I find it packed full of insights which will be very helpful to me. I shall commend it wherever I can."
