The Ancient Context, Ancient Faith Series 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, each author 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.
