To understand the Bible requires some background knowledge, and that necessary information is the purpose of this readable and well-illustrated book. Taking some of the most popular and well-known phrases of the Bible (as well as some lesser known ones), The New Manners and Customs of the Bible illuminates the background of our Biblical heritage as well as the customs and practices of the people of Biblical times. Going through the Old and New Testaments, this resource includes over 700 scripture references to particular manners or customs, hundreds of cross references and dozens of modern expressions that originate from the Bible. Originally written in the late 1800s by James Freeman, this resource has been updated and rewritten by Harold J. Chadwick.
Several topics covered in New Manners and Customs of the Bible
James M. Freeman wrote in his original preface, "Should this volume aid the student in obataining a better understanding of the Bible, the labor of the writer will not have been in vain." In this work, he has succeeded in that goal.
