Abstract:

No matter how familiar we may be with the Bible stories, many questions, misunderstandings, and even confusions remain. Now, in this one volume, we are offered a wealth of specific, factual information on the personalities, the customs and beliefs, the places and events of the Old Testament world. The result is that the stories themselves are amplified and their significance in historical and human terms becomes clearer for all of us today.
