Time of Jesus
" The New Testament speaks of a world quite different from the world of our daily experience.
Consider how baffled St. Peter would be if he had been suddenly transported from fishing on the Sea of Galilee to our living room, and we handed him a news magazine or novel to read while we went to make his dinner.
Henrí Daniel-Rops has written a modern classic, which avails itself of biblical scholarship in order to present background information on daily life in Palestine during the time that Jesus lived. A prolific writer, Daniel-Rops has the rare ability to write about history in a way that brings it alive for modern readers. Daily Life in the time of Jesus offers the reader a bridge into the world of the New Testament, one that is sure to lead him closer to the person of Jesus himself. "
