Customer Reviews for Zondervan The Bible and The Land

Zondervan The Bible and The Land

New Testament scholar Burge reveals the cultural assumptions that lie behind countless Bible stories. Using anthropology, ancient literary sources, and select modern Middle Eastern customs, he examines numerous biblical passages with a new lens; then explores primary motifs---including geography, rock, names, and bread---and applies them to Scripture passages. 112 pages, softcover from Zondervan.

Understanding the Bible requires an understanding of context. This book and others in the series really makes the context of the land and culture clear.
