The celebrated French Academician, Henri Daniel-Rops, recreates the world that gave birth to Christianity. The people who lived in Palestine at the time of Christ become flesh and blood with occupations, families and homes. You will sympathize with them, like them or dislike them. Even the land with its particular kinds of birds singing and its particular flowers and crops growing in its soil are reconstructed to give a full understanding of these people and their turbulent times. Daniel-Rops also brings to light the political, economic, scientific and cultural currents of the period. The events that preceded and surrounded the coming of Christ and the spread of Christianity are illuminated with immense scholarship and moving description, giving a clear picture of Christ among his people and in his time.

It was published at a formative time within the social sciences, and during a period of decisive historical discovery. The aim of the general editor, C.K. Ogden, was to summarize the most up to date findings and theories of historians, anthropologists, archaeologists and sociologists.

Jesus never wrote a book. Most scholars assume that information about Jesus was preserved only orally up until the writing of the Gospels, allowing ample time for the stories of Jesus to grow and diversify. Alan Millard here argues that written reports about Jesus could have been made during his lifetime and that some among his audiences and followers may very well have kept notes, first-hand documents that the Evangelists could weave into their narratives.

Millions of people are familiar with the story of Jesus, but few could place the events of his life, as recorded in the New Testament, into the larger context of world history. Uniquely filling this gap, Charles Frazee's "Two Thousand Years Ago" offers an absorbing, unprecedented survey of peoples and events around the world at the time of Jesus. Even though first-century events outside of Palestine arguably did not play much of a role in the life of Jesus, it is significant that he lived his whole life in a land where a Hellenistic monarch ruled under the surveillance of Roman emperors. Both Greek and Roman culture, as well as Jesus' own Jewish heritage, had an effect on his life and mission. It is thought-provoking, too, to wonder how well Jesus' message would have fit into other cultures of his day, or how important the literacy of the Mediterranean societies was to Jesus' enduring legacy, or whether we in the twenty-first century would have known him at all had he been a member of, say, a Celtic, Pacific, or Native American society. Drawing on historical records and the work of archaeologists and anthropologists, Frazee here explores the full sweep of human civilization contemporary with Jesus' own first-century Palestine. Each chapter looks at one of the world's major regions -- from the Arctic, the Pacific Islands, and the Americas to Europe, Africa, and Asia -- and provides a short description of its history and its status at the time Jesus walked the earth. In presenting a bird's-eye view of the world at this pivotal point in history, Frazee gives readers a new perspective on the life of Jesus in the Holy Land, allowing them to compare and contrast it with life elsewhereon the globe. Filling these pages are photographs of ancient artifacts, from the familiar but beautiful ruins of Greece to more exotic and obscure relics that sometimes constitute the only evidence we have of a culture's existence. Frazee's engaging, popularly written text is also enhanced with fascinating highlighted facts throughout, with numerous extracts from various source documents -- the Bible, the Dao-de Qing, the writings of great Greco-Roman historians, and others -- and with excerpts from the myths and folktales of cultures that left no written records. All in all, "Two Thousand Years Ago" is a splendid work that will appeal to anyone interested in the life of Jesus and world history.
