In this book I have sought to give the reader a feel for Bible times so that the whole Bible will come more alive. We are fortunate that the life-style of the "people of the Book" has remained fairly stable for hundreds of years and that even in the twentieth century people can visit the lands of the Bible and see things that were happening centuries ago.The life-style of the people has also been recorded in words and artifacts, in pictures, and even in the rubbish of the past. It is through the study of such sources that it is possible to recapture something of how things were in Bible times. - Introduction.
