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.
The Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary invites you to enter the Old Testament with a company of guides, experts that will give new insights into these cherished writings.
Isaiah features include:
Over 2000 photographs, drawings, maps, diagrams and charts to 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 into the literature of the ancient Near East that will open your eyes to new depths of understanding both familiar and unfamiliar passages.

Tom4 Stars Out Of 5Informative with lots of illustrationsApril 11, 2016TomQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3This volume is a high quality production in terms of paper and binding. It provides quite a bit of background information on history and practices during Isaiah's times and includes many apt photos and illustrations. With only about 190 pages of narrative and one or two illustrations on nearly every page, however, it is somewhat brief. As to content, the reader will find that the author presents much of what Isaiah writes in the context of surrounding pagan practices. Such is informative but, in my opinion, not very helpful in interpreting the book. Still, the background information on the history of the era and on Jewish religion, culture and government make it worthwhile.
