Written by John Drane, a popular and best-selling author, this is a fascinating insight into the background of the Bible - the worlds of Abraham, Egypt, Babylon, Persia, Assyria, Greece and Rome. In-depth research and superb writing combined make this an essential book for anyone who wants to fully understand the context of the biblical narrative. It covers thousands of years of history, and includes material on ritual and cultural practices, politics and society, faith, travel, trade, everyday life, and more.

Dr John Drane has spent much of his adult life wrestling with the challenge of being a Christian in a rapidly changing culture, and has written many books on missional topics and two best-selling books on the Bible which have been translated into more than sixty languages: Introducing the Old Testament and Introducing the New Testament. John Drane is currently a fellow at St John's College, Durham and taught practical theology at the University of Stirling and University of Aberdeen.
