This book has wonderful photographs of, and information on, an ordinary woman's life in biblical times: betrothal, marriage, mothering, divorce, etc. It also includes sections on the clothing and jewelry women wore, occupations such as professional mourning, prostitution and sorcery, and women's more public roles in society: worship, leadership, dance, etc. It covers the entire Bible, not just Jesus' time.

The information is not as thorough as her splendid book on food in biblical times, mainly because it is not much bigger (100 pages), and the subject is far more vast. For example, there are twenty pages on the various stages of marriage - which is great, but when you factor in romance, betrothal, the wedding, married life, divorce and widowhood, over a span of thousands of years, the information is just detailed enough to satisfy a somewhat curious layperson - which is probably its goal. If so, it does a fantastic job.

Curious about betrothal and marriage, generally speaking? This book has it, complete with outstanding pictures. Want to know the exact difference? Buy something else, because while this book covers weddings in Jesus' time, it doesn't tell you that when Mary was betrothed to Joseph, they were technically married, and by Jewish law - not by custom - they could have sex. If he died, she was widowed and treated that way financially. If she had sex with another man, it was adultery.

Curious about what women spent their time doing? This may be the perfect book for you - there are seven pages on `Women's Work.' Want to know how they cleaned wool? Buy a book on ancient technologies - you probably won't even find it specific to Palestine, actually.

If you want information on any particular woman in the Bible, search for something else.

The pictures are outstanding, and very useful. If you don't mind giving a paperback, it would make a nice gift for someone interested in women at the time of the Bible.

"Women at the Time of the Bible" provides information about what life was like for women during Bible Times. The information tended to be general since it covered such a large time period, but it did give some period-specific or culture-specific details (usually Hebrew, sometimes Roman, occasionally another culture).

The author used clues gleaned from the Bible but also other ancient sources like the Mishnah, early Jewish commentaries on the Bible, early Christian commentaries, clues gleaned from the Apocrypha, traditional cultures in our own time, and archaeology. The author did a wonderful job of combining this information in an interesting and easy to read way.

There were 14 profiles of important Biblical women. The author summarized what the Bible says about their life, but she also gave cultural insights into their lives. There were also many enlightening full-color photographs and illustrations of the information in the text, including pictures of ruins, ancient artifacts, people today performing ancient skills, models, reproductions of items, and more.

However, if you're looking for "how-to" details, like the exact details about the process of cooking bread or grinding grain or even getting betrothed, this book didn't give them. It was more a surface survey about women's lives with a few specific details scattered throughout. Overall, I'd recommend this book to those wanting to know what women's lives were like based primarily on ancient writings (including the Bible).

The topics covered were: who made up a household, women's "home-making" jobs, what houses looked like, family relationships, life expectancies; women's jobs (both city and country, poor to wealthy); romance & romantic love; betrothals & weddings; marriage; divorce & widowhood; motherhood (pregnancy, birth, & raising children); women at worship; music & dance; women in mourning & professional mourners; women's clothing (parts of, how frequently got new clothing, etc.); jewelry, makeup, perfume, & hairstyles; women's education; in leadership roles; prostitutes, mediums, seductresses, & loners.
