I have recently purchased many books on the world of Bible times, and I think this is probably the best. Very readable, with many insights, covering a very wide range of topics given the size of the book. Would recommend this very highly - great value for money.

I was loaned this book to read as part of a course I am doing back in August. I went away for a few days and spent two full days reading this book from cover to cover and looking up every reference along the way. I was so inspired by it that I put it on my Christmas list so now I have it as a permanent reference.

By the time I had finished it, I felt that I knew Jesus the "man". We sometimes struggle to read the Bible and to see it's relevance in today's society. That is simply because it was written for an audience who didn't need to have it all explained because they were living in the era and we in the west, don't have a clue!

I have heard that even today the life of a Jew in Israel, is not very westernized and it is also similar to what it was when the Bible was written so even now they know exactly what's what without explanation.

I would thoroughly recommend this book to all - even those who are sceptical about the whole "Christianity thing" and don't want your mind changed.

Well done Anne, thank you.

What a wonderful book. A really enlightening read for any Christian keen to learn more about Jesus the Jew. The book is divided up into neat sections and is therefore easy to refer back to, like a Commentary. It is full of useful information on virtually every page. One of the most helpful books on my bookshelf. I recommend it to all aspiring Bible teachers and ministers and those who are keen to learn more about the Jewish roots of the Christian faith.

I've recently been on a YFC conference, and this book helped put the references in the main meetings into context. Seeing life through Jesus' eyes, and understanding simple things like what 'girding your loins' actually involved, has brought the message of the Bible closer, and made it more tangible.
Couldn't put it down.
