I first became a fan of Scott Korb because of his remarkable 2008 book The Faith Between Us, co-authored with Peter Bebergal, in which through a series of essays disguised as letters the two not only compare and contrast their differing religious beliefs (Catholicism and Judaism), but also what it's like to be intensely religious in the first place.

What was it like to live during the time of Jesus? Where did people live? Who did they marry? What was family life like? And how did people survive?These are just some of the questions that Scott Korb answers in this engaging new book, which explores what everyday life entailed two thousand years ago in first-century Palestine, that tumultuous era when the Roman Empire was at its zenith and a new religion-Christianity-was born.Culling information from primary sources, scholarly research, and his own travels and observations, Korb explores the nitty-gritty of real life back then-from how people fed, housed, and groomed themselves to how they kept themselves healthy. He guides the contemporary listener through the maze of customs and traditions that dictated life under the numerous groups, tribes, and peoples in the eastern Mediterranean that Rome governed two thousand years ago, and he illuminates the intriguing details of marriage, family life, health, and a host of other aspects of first-century life. The result is a book for everyone, from the armchair traveler to the amateur historian. With surprising revelations about politics and medicine, crime and personal hygiene, this book is smart and accessible popular history at its very best.

An easy read with not as much hard information about year 1 as I had hoped. More informed speculation, but understandable given 2000 years have passed. The amount of verifiable writings from that period are limited.

I didn't like this book because it is not well-written. The author's sentences are so run-on that by the time I get to the end of his sentence, I have forgotten the subject. I am continuing to slog through the book, because he has a great deal of good information. But the book is difficult to read. I have learned, that if I read it out loud, I can follow his train of thought. The book seems to be a transcription of his lectures, with frequent post scripts added in parenthetically.
I would not recommend this book for these reason.
Kezan
An interesting and easy read, but the author is frustrating in his views. It does help picture the world that Jesus lived in.

This book sounded fascinating and accessible when I first read about it. However, now that I am reading it, I just find it annoying, mainly because of the massive amount and length of the footnotes. They are at best a total distraction. In at least one, the author even apologizes for the footnote length. The footnotes should have been incorporated into the text in many places or left out. Perhaps there would be a few legitimate ones left. In some places, the footnotes are as long as the text, just in smaller font, which in itself is a pain. You don't know whether to just skip them or see what they have to add.

Until the author gets serious and rewrites this book in a way to include the information in the text, don't buy it. The style is amateurish and annoying. Two stars is a gift.

This is social history, not "great man" history. If you want to know about bathing habits or the census of the time, this is your book. If you want to know about religious thought of the era, it is not.

People have commented on the extensive footnotes. It looks like the author wrote a bunch of paragraphs which were digressions from the main point of the book and his editor convinced him to drop the paragraphs into footnotes. Readers can probably skip them because they don't add a lot.

I found it to be a compelling book and would recommend it to anyone with an interest in ancient history.
Vertokini
Well written with a welcome dose of humor.
Interesting read but WAY too many footnotes and parentheticals. Seemed at times more like a college essay aimed at impressing a professor with its extensive research than popular historical non-fiction. I almost enjoyed it!
