  A good reference book that may help you understand the honor/shmae dynamic and how it helps with biblical interpretation is:
  Desilva, David A. Honor, Patronage, Kinship & Purity: Unlocking New Testament Culture. Downers Grove, Illinois: InterVarsity Press, 2000. ISBN 0830815724, 9780830815722

I have heard people say that you can't understand the Bible unless you understand honor and shame during those times. I have read a little about the subject, but I don't know how important it really was. Can anyone tell me if honor and shame are really that important to understanding the Bible?
