The Bible is a truly wonderful book. Millions of Christians through the ages and across the world have treasured it as their most valued possession, often insisting that anyone can pick up the Bible and read and understand it for themselves. But many of the details remain fuzzy until we find out more about their historical or literary setting. The IVP Introduction to the Bible is intended to reduce the fuzziness, in two ways: First, by providing background information to the whole Bible and each testament, as well as the gap between the testaments. Second, by introducing all the main sections of the Bible and each biblical book in turn. So the great biblical panorama is brought to life, first with broad brush strokes and then with fine art work.

The IVP Introduction to the Bible is written by an international and interdenominational team of evangelical scholars, among them

  • Desmond Alexander, author of From Paradise to the Promised Land
  • Tremper Longman III, author of How to Read the Psalms and How to Read ProverbsHoward Marshall, author of New Testament TheologyMark Strauss, author of Four Portraits, One Jesus


All are involved in teaching biblical studies at a theological college, seminary or university, and each writing in their area of specialization. As they guide you expertly through the details, your understanding of the Bible and its message will be greatly enhanced. Readers of all stripes, from curious non-Christians to serious students of the Bible, will find The IVP Introduction to the Bible a helpful and enjoyable resource.

Travelers about to visit a foreign country often study a guidebook with information about that country. Especially helpful are clear, easy-to-use maps, background information on the local area, and articles about important sites to visit.

Similarly, the Bible confronts many readers today with a kind of "foreign country in writing" whose customs and culture aren't always clear. The Eerdmans Companion to the Bible will greatly help readers navigate unfamiliar biblical terrain and deepen their knowledge of areas already familiar to them.

With over two hundred user-friendly maps, charts, graphics, and photos the The Eerdmans Companion to the Bible brings the ancient world of the Bible to life. Numerous articles offer significant insights into the Bible's people, places, and main ideas. Travelers who visit specific individual books will find in-depth, illuminating commentary based on up-to-date research.

Reflecting a broad evangelical perspective this volume continues Eerdmans' proud tradition of providing quality biblical resources for nearly a century. This handy guidebook promises to make the Word of God come alive as never before.

Dictionary of Paul and His Letters: A Compendium of Contemporary Biblical ScholarshipDictionary of Paul and His Letters: A Compendium of Contemporary Biblical Scholarship

The Dictionary of Paul and His Letters is a one-of-a-kind reference work. Following the format of its highly successful companion volume, the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels, this Dictionary is designed to bring students, teachers, ministers and lay people abreast the established conclusions and significant recent developments in Pauline scholarship.

No other single reference work presents as much information focused exclusively on Pauline theology, literature, background and scholarship. In a field that recently has undergone significant shirts in perspective, the Dictionary of Paul and His Letters offers a summa of Paul and Pauline studies. In-depth articles focus on individual theological themes (such as law, resurrection and Son of God), broad theological topics (such as Christology, eschatology and the death of Christ), methods of interpretation (such as rhetorical criticism and social-scientific approaches), background topics (such as apocalypticism, Hellenism and Qumran) and various other subjects specifically related to the scholarly study of Pauline theology and literature (such as early catholicism, the center of Paul's theology, and Paul and his interpreters since F. C. Baur). Separate articles are also devoted to each of the Pauline letters to hermeneutics and to preaching Paul today.

The Dictionary of Paul and His Letters takes its place alongside the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels in presenting the fruit of evangelical New Testament scholarship at the end of the twentieth century--committed to the authority of Scripture, utilizing the best of critical methods, and maintaining dialogue with contemporary scholarship and challenges facing the church.
