Daily Life in Biblical Times is the English language edtion of the Hebrew title Hatanach Haya Be-emet published in Israel in 2009 by Yediot Acharonot. Why does the Bible support marriage to multiple wives? Why does only one son inherit his father's property? Is it possible that the journey's hardships and the severe shortage of food prevented Sarah from conceiving? In The Bible Really Happened, Dr. Liora Ravid follows in the footsteps of the biblical heroes, examining their stories based on the social and legal reality of their time. The book reconstructs the historical journey of Abraham and his family from Ur of the Chaldees to the land of Canaan - from a land that worshipped multiple idols to the land of the One God, the birthplace of David, the judges, the prophets, and Jesus. Ravid questions why the Bible begins with stories of the forefathers and foremothers, describing them as simple shepherds. Why were they so important? Ravid demonstrates that according to the pedigree in Genesis, the forefathers and foremothers originated from one noble family, the family that gave rise to King David, ancestor of the Messiah, and according to the New Testament, to Jesus as well. Readers of the English Bible are often unaware of the special writing style of the original Hebrew, which uses rich wordplay and double entendre to add multiple layers of color and depth to the text. Especially for the non-Hebrew reader, the author opens a window on this hidden world within the words.

Review:

"The author, Dr. Liora Ravid, is a native of Israel and earned her doctorate in biblical studies. Thebook is divided into six parts, each covering topics in biblical culture, including family structure, the place of women, sexual violence, inheritance, and the historicity of the Bible. The author explains in the introduction that the intention of the book is to describe biblical stories within their cultural and historical context. Within the six parts are twenty-six chapters, each devoted to explaining details related to the topic in each part, with emphasis on the patriarchs and their experiences of family,marriage, conflict and tradition. The book concludes with a selected bibliography that covers a wide range of sources. What is unique about the book is its scholarly explanation of biblical concepts in laymans terms making the text of the book appropriate for any adult or young adult reader. This book is appropriate for any librarys non-fiction collection." - Arthur G. Quinn, St. Vincent de Paul Seminary, Boynton Beach, FL The Tanach is an important part of our existence, whether were secular or religious its our history. Weve learned the stories of the forefathers and foremothers, but modern Biblical scholar, Liora Ravid, brings to light in Daily Life in Biblical Times every day occurrences that we might not otherwise have thought of when learning these stories. Ravids insights in Daily Life in Biblical Times make us stop and pause about the stories that we are so familiar with. Whether it be as simple as a footstep or the hierarchy in the womans place in the home, it is an interesting read. ) Caryn Meltz, www.modiinfo.com
