The New Testament World in Pictures is a library of information about the first-century world which lies behind the New Testament, especially the Greco-Roman culture. The religion, superstitions, trades, commerce, family life, city layout, life-style, amusements and dress of this period are covered in considerable depth. The Palestinian and Eastern influences are included in the text briefly to provide the proper context, but the book concentrates on the world confronted by Paul and Christian of the first century. The text and photographs are thoroughly integrated, with the text explaining details in the photographs so extensively that first-century life is documented and clearly described. The photographs depict artefacts from both major and regional museums across the world and architectural features from excavated sites located throughout Europe and the Near East. Information has been gleaned from sources that range from well-known to relatively obscure to provide in one volume an authoritative single source for an understanding of the first-century world. Both subject and Scripture indexes are provided to allow quick access to information in the book, and the text accompanying most of the photographs guide the reader to New Testament text that are illuminated by the information.
