By James S. Jeffer’s (InterVarsity)
Do you want to know the background of the world in which Jesus, the apostles, and the early church lived? Jeffer’s book is the best single volume about that period. It tells us about the Roman government, how the people lived, the structures of society and the military, the major role played by slavery. It tells us of education, the family, the cities, the road systems, the means of travel and of communication. An indispensable book that will greatly enhance the study of the Bible!
