Kings and Carpenters

art by Martha Newbigging

Using fascinating historical information and plenty of humor, this Jobs in History title introduces young readers to 100 jobs performed by the Israelites, Phoenicians and Philistines during the Iron Age, from charioteers and victory drummers to court scribes and innkeepers.

"This cleverly written volume...describes the life and hard work of the people in Canaan during the Iron Age, 1200 to 586 BCE.... This informative text should prove useful in conjunction with the Social Studies curriculum and it is also a fun book to read on its own."

Resource Links, Vol. 15, No. 5

"Ship building, carpentry and tending sheep were all obvious career choices back in Bible times. But did you ever think that animal trainers, slingers and beetle carvers may also have been popular jobs? Readers who teach Sunday School classes should check out Kings and Carpenters."
