Product Description

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.

    I have always liked Bible Handbooks, they're the next book most Bible students (of any age) should buy after the Bible itself. This is the best Bible Handbook I've ever seen. It's Seminary/Graduate level in depth. It has no discernible doctrinal bias; not too Baptist, not too reformed, not too anything. It presents multiple schools of interpretation, without apology. It explains cultural subtext lost on the modern reader. The articles explain Biblical concepts in context to both audience relevance, and modern scientific understanding. In short it's very impressive. This volume is appropriate for several groups of readers: The serious adult student, Church teachers, indigenous Pastor training, etc.

    The book is done on quality paper. It is a good quick overview of the books of the Bible for the novice who wants text only. However, in this day and age of the visual, all pictures should be in color. They are not. Further the B & W pics are substandard, some absolutely meaningless. Page 2 has a B & W satellite photo of the Levant. Sad that it is not in color to bring out the richness of the region. A book of this nature is good for show-and-tell in classes but only if the pictures are in color and if there is an index of the photos for quick reference. No color and no index in this one! Thus a mediocre book. If it was not for the postage, I would send the book back. I expected far more from G. Fee
