Manners and Customs, Palestine

John Kitto wrote this book for schools because they lacked a proper History of Palestine.

This book includes accounts of the geography of the country, and of the manners, customs, and institutions of its ancient inhabitants. Kitto presents the history of the Hebrew nation from the time of Abraham, through the various political forms which it assumed till the dispersion of that peculiar people.

In the Introductory Chapters much assistance has been obtained from the Biblical Archaeology of Professor Jahn, and from a variety of other sources—the whole being illustrated by the results of such acquaintance with Oriental customs as the author’s former residence in the East enabled him to acquire.

The present Edition has been carefully revised throughout; considerable improvements have been made—particularly in the Introduction; and a greatly increased number of really Illustrative Wood-cuts have been inserted.

About John Kitto
John Kitto lived just 50 years, from 1804 to 1854.

Kitto had been a careful observer of physical detail – the topography, the animals, architecture, agricultural methods, the manner of interaction between people. His retelling of Bible stories in the light of what he had seen brought the narratives to life and confirmed the accuracy of the ancient texts. He showed how the activities described by the prophets and apostles accorded with the realities of Eastern culture. He supplemented his own observations with details from the journals of other travellers, and helped the Bible reader to understand many things previously obscure or contradictory to the Western mind. His careful research into the geography, biology and archaeology of Bible lands served to support and encourage confidence in the accuracy of the Bible.

In his generation Dr Kitto was a most significant contributor to Christian scholarship, and he provided much help for Evangelicals defending the Bible against the attack of liberal critics. He eventually wrote a total of twenty-three books, of which Charles Spurgeon considered the Daily Bible Illustrations to be "more interesting than any novel that was ever written, and as instructive as the heaviest theology."

John Kitto summed up his life with the following words:

"I perhaps have as much right as any man that lives, to bear witness that there is no one so low but that he may rise, no condition so cast down as to be really hopeless, and no privation which need, of itself, shut out any man from the paths of honourable exertion or from the hope of usefulness in life. I have sometimes thought that it was possibly my mission to affirm and establish these great truths."
