Africa and Africans in antiquity by Edwin M Yamauchi( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Africa and Africans in Antiquity assesses historical research and archaeology under way in Egypt, North Africa, the Sudan, and the Horn of Africa. Whereas many European and American scholars of earlier generations believed that Egyptian contacts with Africa to the south were not culturally significant, research contained in the important collection rejects such notions. At the same time the volume takes issue with Afrocentric scholars who argue that most Egyptians were "black" and that blacks are the rightful heirs to Egypt's past grandeur. These ten essays demonstrate that this large region was an ethnic and cultural mosaic in antiquity, a place where Phoenicians, Berbers, Greeks, as well as Egyptians and Nubians interacted."--Jacket

Dictionary of daily life in biblical and post-biblical antiquity by Edwin M Yamauchi( Book )

in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most Bible dictionaries on the market today completely miss a number of cultural and sociological issues of interest to the study of the Scriptures. The Dictionary of Biblical and Post-Biblical Antiquity aims to correct this. Written by a world-class historian and a highly respected biblical scholar, this unique reference work provides background information on the world of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament from 2000 BC to approximately AD 600. Articles on domestic life, technology, culture, laws, and religious practices are rarely found in available Bible dictionaries and encyclopedias, but here they are addressed in cogent summaries, accompanied by bibliographic material for further exploration. While the authors are well known, they have also recruited experts in the actual fields being discussed in numerous cases, and thus the book is further strengthened by the high level of scholarship applied to each of the articles. Scholars, pastors, and students (and their teachers) will find this to be a very useful resource for biblical study, exegesis, and sermon preparation. -- Amazon
