How can one fully comprehend the Old Testament book of Ruth without understanding ancient Israelite marriage traditions? Even a quick skim of the Gospels has you wondering about tax collectors, religious officials, fishermen, and farmers. And so much is missed when reading Acts and the Epistles without some grasp of Roman law and government. Now newly revised and fully updated, each chapter of Manners & Customs in the Bible furnishes an introduction to the political and physical setting of specific periods in Israel's history and outlines the basic structure of its social world. Scripture passages are featured alongside the text to keep relevant biblical passages in view. Victor H. Matthews is Dean of the College, and professor of religious studies at Southwest Missouri State University. He received a PhD from Brandeis University and has written numerous popular as well as scholarly articles. He is the author of Manners and Customs in the Bible, and co-author of Old Testament Parallels: Laws and Stories from the Ancient Near East and The Social World of Ancient Israel.
