The Ancient Context, Ancient Faith Series (3 vols.) explores how the culture of the biblical world is presupposed in story after story of the Bible. Using cultural anthropology, ancient literary sources, and a selective use of modern Middle Eastern culture, Burge reopens the ancient biblical story and urges you to look at them through new lenses. Each volume contains colorful maps, photos, and illustrations to enhance the context of the Old and New Testaments.

Please note that this collection is available as part of the Zondervan Bible Reference Bundle 3 (63 vols.).

Resource Experts
  • Illustrates the context of Old and New Testament stories, parables, and events
  • Includes numerous maps, photos, and illustrations
Watch the parables of Jesus and other texts come alive in the hands of someone who is himself a master storyteller. Highly recommended.

    I downloaded the Ancient Context Ancient Faith Series (3 Volumes) by Gary Burge on Friday. The Bible and the Land - Encounters With Jesus - Jesus the Middle Eastern Story Teller. I had seen one of these books in a Christian bookstore some time ago and considerered purchasing it. The problem was that it was not a lenghty book. Each of these volumes is just over 100 pages with a total of all three at 352 pages. Personally, I like larger volumes but I was definitely not disappointed in what I have read so far. In about a day and a half I have worked my way through "The Bible and the Land" and am currently about half way through Encounters With Jesus. If you are considering this set I would highly recommend adding it to your library. Though it is not a large set and there are a lot of pictures and maps scattered throughout, the pictures really add to the quality and understanding of the text. I was pleasantly surprised with this set and I am looking forward to obtaining more from Gary Burge. I have purchased other volumes both in digital and print format and have been disappointed in it once I got into it. This set is not like that, it is undersold and over delivers.
