Do you know why Christ chose a man carrying a pitcher of water to lead the disciples to the last supper? Or why a Samaritan woman came to the well in the sweltering heat of midday?

The New Manners and Customs of Bible Times, by Ralph Gower will help you discover those answers and many will help illuminate many more cultural issues. This handbook is a complete revision of the Manners and Customs of Bible Lands originally written by Fred H. Wight in 1953.

The New Manners and Customs of Bible Times will open your eyes to the lifestyles and customs of the Bible's writers and characters, giving you a clearer understanding of God's Word. Read detailed accounts of ancient customs regarding marriage, education, farming, dress, economics, food, housing, worship, and more.
