The Bible reflects a culture very different from our own. This book transports us back to the beliefs and customs which lie behind the pages of the gospels, and allows us to appreciate more fully what we read. For example, many of Jesus’ parables are based on agricultural images which make sense only when we understand oriental ways of working the land. [back cover].
