Each chapter furnishes an introduction to the political and physical setting of the period in Israel's history and outlines the basic structure of its social world. Then specific scenes drawn from the biblical text are studied in a way that sheds light on the daily life of the people of that time. Drawing from a variety of sources to recreate the society of ancient Israel - extrabiblical sources and archaeological data as well as the biblical text itself - Dr. Matthews helps the reader to see the ancient world of Israel as never before. Once seen in this way, it will never look the same again.
