Product Description

The editors and authors of this book share the fervent belief that the Bible reveals to human beings the path to God and thus to meaningful human existence. They stand in a long tradition of interpreters of Scripture going back to ancient times, as readers sought to understand the stories, prophecies, songs, prayers, and letters making up the great anthology that is the Bible. They seek to help us hear afresh transforming words that will quicken the life of the church as it shares in God's redeeming work in the world.

This volume contains a commentary on each book of the Bible. Each commentary includes an outline, an introduction, a unit-by-unit commentary, a concluding essay on theological implications, and a list of works cited. It also includes additional articles on the background of the Old and New Testaments. The reader should expect to gain an understanding of (1) the organization and arguments of each biblical book, (2) the main historical issues bearing on its interpretation, and (3) the theological meaning of each book.

In illuminating the biblical texts, the authors of this commentary draw on their knowledge of the original languages and a deep awareness of the literary shape and flow of the Bible, the relevant archaeological and textual evidence from the ancient Near East or Greco-Roman worlds, and the history of biblical interpretation, ancient, medieval, and modern. Alongside their work as scholars, the authors of this volume are active Christians. Many of them teach in Christian seminaries or universities. Thus their interest in the Bible is not merely theoretical but connects to an active faith working to bear the good news of God's redeeming word in Christ to the world.
