Product Description

The Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary presents a scholarly and critical introduction, in a beautifully illustrated presentation, to the books of the Bible. In Volume 5 top scholars such as David W. Baker, lead us through the biblical books of The Minor Prophets, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Songs.

Each book is set in its original historical and social context, and major issues such as translation, chronology, and authorship are presented in detail via a passage-by-passage commentary.

This series, or its individual volumes, with its informative commentary and beautiful photographs, insightful outtakes, will make an excellent home school curriculum, church, curriculum, and would be perfect for courses in a Christian high school. It will also be ideal for anyone who wishes to undertake a comprehensive, but introductory study to specific sections of the Bible, or the Bible in its entirety.

Publisher's Description

Many today find the Old Testament a closed book. The cultural issues seem insurmountable and we are easily baffled by that which seems obscure. Furthermore, without knowledge of the ancient culture we can easily impose our own culture on the text, potentially distorting it. This series invites you to enter the Old Testament with a company of guides, experts that will give new insights into these cherished writings. Features include • Over 2000 photographs, drawings, maps, diagrams and charts provide a visual feast that breathes fresh life into the text. • Passage-by-passage commentary presents archaeological findings, historical explanations, geographic insights, notes on manners and customs, and more. • Analysis into the literature of the ancient Near East will open your eyes to new depths of understanding both familiar and unfamiliar passages. • Written by an international team of 30 specialists, all top scholars in background studies.

    Very well produced volume - layout, graphics and pics. Info is very helpful to understanding underlying history and culture of particular Biblical times. I have already learned quite a bit that I hadn't learned previously. (I am an educated layman.) However, it is sometimes easy to become lost in the details. Seems to show an evangelical, somewhat baptistic slant. Great set, and nice to be able to purchase a volume at a time for an otherwise rather costly set - especially for one like me whose income is limited.
