I have thoroughly enjoyed this Bible, and have used it as a resource in my Master's classes. The wealth of cultural information really helps establish a context for the passages. It has greatly aided in interpretation.
I loved the idea of this Bible and had to get it especially since I love archaeology! What's more fun- and more rewarding- than discovering the truth behind the Bible stories you've always heard? Helpful for people who have questions about the culture of the time period/ place and even how the Bible stands up to the mythology of the world the Bible writers lived in. Wonderful book!
I am pleases with purchase. The quality was excellent. The price was great and was shipped quickly. I bought this for my brother in law who is not a believer. He was impressed with the Bible and promised to read it.
