Card catalog description: This classic study of the cultural and social world of Jesus and his apostles has earned a place on countless shelves for more than a century, and Alfred Edersheim's widely acclaimed work on the people, the land, the history, and the religion of Jesus continues to be invaluable for students of Scripture. Now this timeless volume is available in a newly typeset, easy-to-read edition that will make studying even more enjoyable and rewarding. Added illustrations and marginal comments further improve this standard resource. Like his books The Temple and Its Ministry and The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah, Sketches of Jewish Social Life reflects Edersheim's encyclopedic familiarity with ancient Jewish sources. His ability to make the Scriptures come alive in their ancient context remains unsurpassed, and every reader will feel like they've just taken a trip to the land of Jesus and his apostles.

Our Review: We have several of Edersheim's books and refer to them often when studying Jewish customs and traditions. They are such treasure-troves of information that we have taken the time to type and reproduce them online. Please see our online books section.
