Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Good entries and extensive bibliographical info at the end of each chapter. Up to the minute perspectives on Jewish daily life in Roman Palestine (that don't necessarily jibe with the stuff we were taught in the past!).
The book is very expensive, but probably worth the money because it is so comprehensive.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent resource for understanding many of the practical, everyday details concerning life in Palestine during the period of Roman domination. It covers a variety of subjects including sociology, domestic architecture, clothing, food, commerce, and leisure-time activities, among many other topics. I happen to be in the process of writing a historical novel for which the information contained in this book is particularly relevant, and I have found this book to be an especially useful reference. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning more about what scholars from several academic disciplines think ordinarily Jewish life may have been like back during those Roman provincial days.
