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 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.

Philosophy, although valuable, is incomplete without theology.

Christians should evaluate philosophy by biblical criteria. This will shed greater light on the developments in the history of philosophy and better prepare us for the intellectual challenges of our time.

The fall of Adam brought intellectual as well as moral corruption on the human race, and the effects of the fall can be seen in the work of philosophers, most of whom try to understand the world autonomously - through reasoning apart from God's revelation. Some philosophers have appealed to God's revelation, but their work has often been compromised with the wisdom of the world. Revelation should inform reason, and not the other way round. In the past, even Christian theology was corrupted by the movement toward intellectual autonomy, creating the tradition of liberalism, which has unhappily dominated academic theology down to the present day.

But there is hope - a new generation of Christian thinkers take God's Word seriously. Frame's unique new contribution, A History of Western Philosophy and Theology augments that process.

"This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church." -Ephesians 5:32

Marriage is not a human invention; it is a divine revelation of eternal significance. From the beginning, God designed marriage to convey a greater reality—the passionate, unfailing, redeeming love of God for sinners, the eternal romance between Christ and his bride. Marriage, at its core, is of God and reveals a wonderful truth about God.

Ray Ortlund's Marriage and the Mystery of the Gospel traces the biblical view of marriage—from the first marriage in the garden of Eden to the ultimate marriage in the book of Revelation—unveiling a vision of marriage that dignifies our own imperfect unions as a display of the gospel. With a scholar's head and a lover's heart, Ortlund examines marriage through the lenses of creation, fall, law and gospel, illuminating the profound mystery of marriage, namely that it reveals Christ, is for the sake of Christ, and pursues Christ. This volume from the Short Studies in Biblical Theology series leads readers to honor and exalt marriage as a grand display of the gospel, offering guidance and hope for our own marriages today.
