Endorsements

Let's face it: the Bible can be a challenging book to understand, to say the least. But that sentence will become less true if people use this book. It's rare to see this combination of deep scholarship, clear prose, and engaging images--all of which help us hear afresh the Bible's message for us today.
-Mark Galli,
senior managing editor,
Christianity Today

"This commentary gives a welcome bird's-eye view of the Bible. In addition, there are enough pictures and maps to help the reader also get a worm's-eye view of what the bird is seeing. That makes this commentary a welcome guide to the study of the Scriptures.
-Haddon Robinson,
Harold John Ockenga Professor of Preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

Under the dynamic leadership of Gary Burge and Andrew Hill, a talented and diverse team of scholars has produced The Baker Illustrated Bible Commentary. Evangelical by conviction, this basic reference book gives ordinary Christians complete and reliable comment on every passage in the Bible. By treating the Bible as the Word of God, by providing a distinctively Christ-centered reading of the Old Testament, and by counterbalancing critical interpretations of Scripture, this new commentary promises to build up the church and help Bible readers understand the gospel.
-Dr. Philip G. Ryken,
president, Wheaton College

    This is what I expected to be as a one-volume Bible commentary. My daughter who is a university student also found it very useful in her personal Bible study and won't give it back to me after borrowing it from me. I think I should buy another one for her as a gift.
