Overview
Welcome to the world of Biblical women, uniquely revealed in this book, a cornucopia of ancient sources, first among them the Holy Scripture, along with photographs and drawings of rare and beautiful finds unearthed in the Holy Land and other Bible lands. All are woven together with engaging and in-depth commentary. Each chapter reveals a different fascinating aspect of a woman's life in Bible times, from her fundamental contribution to family and community, her spiritual walk, the work of her hands, her dress and adornments, and more. As the stories of these long-ago women unfold, you will find yourself riveted by everything from the minutest details to the dramatic milestones of women's lives. You will discover bonds unbroken by the millennia, and a singularly enriching and inspiring path to a more thorough understanding of the sacred message of the Scriptures.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful, but General  May 24, 2008
This book has wonderful photographs of, and information on, an ordinary woman's life in biblical times: betrothal, marriage, mothering, divorce, etc. It also includes sections on the clothing and jewelry women wore, occupations such as professional mourning, prostitution and sorcery, and women's more public roles in society: worship, leadership, dance, etc. It covers the entire Bible, not just Jesus' time.

The information is not as thorough as her splendid book on food in biblical times, mainly because it is not much bigger (100 pages), and the subject is far more vast. For example, there are twenty pages on the various stages of marriage - which is great, but when you factor in romance, betrothal, the wedding, married life, divorce and widowhood, over a span of thousands of years, the information is just detailed enough to satisfy a somewhat curious layperson - which is probably its goal. If so, it does a fantastic job.

Curious about betrothal and marriage, generally speaking? This book has it, complete with outstanding pictures. Want to know the exact difference? Buy something else, because while this book covers weddings in Jesus' time, it doesn't tell you that when Mary was betrothed to Joseph, they were technically married, and by Jewish law - not by custom - they could have sex. If he died, she was widowed and treated that way financially. If she had sex with another man, it was adultery.

Curious about what women spent their time doing? This may be the perfect book for you - there are seven pages on `Women's Work.' Want to know how they cleaned wool? Buy a book on ancient technologies - you probably won't even find it specific to Palestine, actually.

If you want information on any particular woman in the Bible, search for something else.

The pictures are outstanding, and very useful. If you don't mind giving a paperback, it would make a nice gift for someone interested in women at the time of the Bible.
