I love having this Bible! The background information found in it is interesting and helpful to understand the Biblical times. It has quotes from other sources that relate to some of the passages and maps to use to see where the different cities and towns were. There is even a reference in the back of the Bible for a quick word-find! I love it!!
A must have for those who have an interest in archaeology. There are plenty of pictures, charts, and precise explanations of many Biblical archaeological sites. Having spent time at digs in Israel, having written a textbook on archaeology for my seminarians, and as an avid student of archaeology, I highly recommend this study Bible.
