"The NIV First-Century Study Bible was created to help you understand God’s Word in its original cultural context. It introduces you to an ancient world vastly different from your own, but rich in valuable life lessons. This Bible is designed with great tools to help answer your questions about life in Bible times. As you dive in, you’ll see how the ancient past holds applicable truths for life today.

The NIV First-Century Study Bible includes fascinating articles from Pastor Kent Dobson, unpacking the culture of Bible times, illuminating Scripture passages, and asking thoughtful questions along the way. Kent is the teaching pastor at Mars Hill Bible Church in Grandville, Michigan, where he initially served as the worship director. He has been featured on Biblical programs for the History Channel and the Discovery Channel. Kent fell in love with Biblical studies in Israel and had the privilege of learning from both Jewish and Christian scholars. After his time in Israel, he returned to the States to teach high school religion and Bible before responding to God's call to the pastorate. Today, he keeps his connection to the Holy Land strong, leading tours to Israel that combine study and prayer, inspired by the ancient discipline of spiritual pilgrimage.
