For over 100 years, Freeman's Manners and Customs of the Bible has been the serious Bible student's choice. Short of enrolling in a course in ancient Hebrew civilization, The New Manners & Customs of the Bible is the quickest, easiest, and most enjoyable way to understand the people and culture of the Bible. It is an invaluable key to unlocking a complete and accurate understanding of Scripture that is often hidden in ancient Hebrew culture. Do you know, for example:
What significance earrings had in Biblical times? What the sources were for the waters for Noah's Flood? What Jesus really meant by the “eye of the needle”? What it means for Christ to wear “many crowns”? What Paul was referring to by a “triumphal procession”? What the differences are between a modern and a Biblical wedding celebration?
All these questions and hundreds more are answered in The New Manners & Customs of the Bible. It's a reference book that belongs on the bookshelf of every earnest Bible student and teacher.
