Product Description

You’ve heard many Bible stories hundreds of times, but how many behind-the-scenes details are you missing? Sometimes a little context is all you need to discover just how much is happening in Scripture.

That’s what the NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible provides. Every page is packed with expert insight into the customs, culture, and literature of Bible times. These fascinating explanations will serve to clarify your study of the Scriptures, reinforcing your confidence and bringing difficult passages of Scripture into sharp focus.

The Bible was originally written to an ancient people removed from us by thousands of years and thousands of miles. Scripture is full of symbolic references, nuances, and even plays on words that came across loud and clear to the people who originally read it, but that may get lost in translation for the modern English reader.

This study Bible changes that. The NIV Cultural Backgrounds Bible gives you the insight you need to

  • Discover what the Scriptures would have meant to their ancient hearers
  • Set aside our own modern Western perceptions and read the Bible like its original hearers might have
  • Enjoy quick access to one of the most comprehensive collection of research about Bible times ever assembled in one study Bible

Features Include

  • The full text of the NIV
  • Hundreds of full-color photographs from around the world
  • In-depth book introductions explain the context in which each book of the Bible was written
  • Over 10,000 verse-by-verse notes reveal new dimensions of insight to even the most familiar passages
  • Dozens of charts, maps, diagrams in vivid color
  • In-depth articles on key contextual topics
  • Words of Jesus in red
  • Full study Bible tools: cross references, a concordance, indexes and other helps

"How I wish someone had put a book like this into my hands 50 years ago." - N.T. Wright, Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, University of St. Andrews, Scotland

CONTEXT CHANGES EVERYTHING

You’ve heard many Bible stories hundreds of times, but how many behind-the-scenes details are you missing? Sometimes a little context is all you need to discover the rich meaning behind the stories of Scripture.

That’s what the NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible provides. Every page is packed with expert insight into the customs, culture, and literature of Bible times. These fascinating explanations will serve to clarify your study of the Scriptures, reinforcing your confidence and bringing difficult passages of Scripture into sharp focus.

Discover new dimensions of insight to even the most familiar Bible passages as you take a behind-the-scenes tour into the ancient world.

The Bible was originally written to an ancient people removed from us by thousands of years and thousands of miles. The Scriptures include subtle culturally based nuances, undertones, and references to ancient events, literature and customs that were intuitively understood by those who first heard the Scriptures read. For us to hear the Scriptures as they did, we need a window into their world.

The NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible, with notes from Dr. John H. Walton (Wheaton College) in the Old Testament and Dr. Craig S. Keener (Asbury Theological Seminary) in the New Testament, brings to life the ancient world of Scripture for modern readers.

    This is one of the better study bibles on the market in my opinion. If you are looking to go deeper into historical context this is an excellent study bible. It will help you understand the bible in its original context.

    I just received my copy today, so this is not a comment on the content of the notes. Rather it is a response to many complaints about the size of the fonts on the notes and them being very hard to read because of the coloring. Amazon particularly had quite a few bad reviews over this issue. I was hesitant to order and was going to wait till the large print version would be published. I am 74 years old and have needed reading glasses for over 30 years now. When I opened my copy to see how hard it was going to be to read the notes, I was very pleased to see that I had no trouble whatsoever. I always read with strong lighting and I find the notes very easy to read: NO PROBLEMS! As far as content, I'm sure I will be pleased overall, as any background info helps us understand God's word and apply it better to our lives today. I've seen a few reviews nit-picking over a particular note, here and there. You can always find a few things in any study Bible, commentary, sermon, etc. over which you can disagree, But if most of the content is great, how about a little Grace shown to the writers where you may not agree with them.

    A very happy buyer!!!
