Handbook of Bible Manners and Customs

ByRev. James M Freeman

Handbook of Bible Manners and Customs by Rev. James M Freeman, D.D., Illustrated by One Hundred and Sixty-eight Engravings Though the Bible is adapted to all nations, it is in many respects an Middle Eastern book. It represents the modes of thought and the peculiar customs of a people who, in their habits, widely differ from us. The Middle Eastern customs of 19th Century are, mainly, the same as those of ancient times. Many ancient customs still existed in their primitive integrity in the 19th Century. The design of this volume is to illustrate the Bible by an explanation of the Middle Eastern customs to which it refers. The Bible becomes more than ever a real book when we can read it understandingly. The texts illustrated are arranged in the order in which they occur in the Bible, and are accompanied by explanations of the customs to which they allude. This method seems to be the most natural for Bible study and is the plan followed in this book.
