Full description for Daily Life in Palestine at the Time of Christ
Henri Daniel-Rops deploys all his towering erudition to recreate the lives of the humble men and women who were the first followers of Christ. In his hands these distant people become flesh-and-blood individuals. You will know them and their land. You will sympathise with them, like them or dislike them. They have occupations, families and homes, They work, eat, love die - in short, have all the faults and virtues of your own family or your neighbour's. The land has a look and feel to it. There are particular kinds of birds singing in the trees. Particular flowers and crops growing in the soil. There is the heat of the desert, the cool mountain air, all the varied, historically rich, and beloved geography of Palestine. Understanding these people, their turbulent times and the trials and pleasures of their lives, the relationships and differences between their times and ours becomes increasingly clear, as does the profound significance of belief and faith, in any historical period.
