A leading reference for engaging the historical and cultural context of the Old Testament!Most people today see the Old Testament as a closed, irrelevant group of antiquated books. Bias perspectives and cultural perspectives seem insurmountable, and the mindset of the Old Testament almost unbelievable. Combined, all of this leads to the tendency to reduce the Old Testament and the meaning of its passages to our definitions and smother it in our prejudices. The distortion of its meaning becomes inevitable.

Combining informative entries and full-color photos and the graphics, the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary brings readers back to the ancient world in a way unlike other commentaries. Its unique visual approach--backed by the very best scholarship--will help readers connect with the historical and cultural contexts of the Old Testament.


  • Numerous photographs, drawings, maps, diagrams, and charts provide a visual feast that breathes fresh life into the text
  • Passage-by-passage commentary presenting archaeological findings, historical explanations, geographic insights, notes on manners and customs, and more.
  • Analysis of the literature of the Ancient Near East that will open your eyes to see new depths of understanding of both familiar and unfamiliar passages
