"In her delightful style, Lois Tverberg engagingly leads us across cultures to begin to envision a different worldview, a worldview more consistent with the world of most of Scripture. In so doing, she brings alive biblical texts from the inside."--Craig S. Keener, F. M. and Ada Thompson Professor of Biblical Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary; coauthor of the NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible

"Thanks to the good work of biblical scholars, the historical Jesus of Nazareth is once again situated in his divinely designed Second Temple period Jewish context. The latest from Lois Tverberg is a meaningful contribution to that end."--James C. Whitman, president, Center for Judaic-Christian Studies

"Lois Tverberg opens up the Scriptures we all love and shines a fascinating new light on them. As she gracefully bridges the culture gap between Jesus's first Jewish followers and twenty-first-century Christians, I found myself falling in love with the Bible all over again. I devoured this fascinating book."--Lynn Austin, author of Where We Belong 

"This excellent book unfolds so many valuable truths in the Scriptures that are often ignored or misunderstood. Lois Tverberg is a trustworthy guide whose insightful discoveries provide a delightful appetizer to some of the most exciting passages in the Old Testament. I'm recommending it to everyone I know."--Todd Bolen, professor of biblical studies, The Master's University

"Lois Tverberg has written still another classic. For those who want to know what it was like to be one of Jesus's disciples and sit down with him to study Scripture, Tverberg's new book is the place to start."--David N. Bivin, founder and editor, Jerusalem Perspective
