The Bible was written within collectivist cultures, and it's easy for Westerners to misinterpret--or miss--important elements. Combining the expertise of a biblical scholar and a missionary practitioner, this essential guidebook explores the deep social structures of the ancient Mediterranean, stripping away individualist assumptions and helping us read the Bible better.
