Written by an international team of 30 scholars and specialists, the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary series presents a scholarly and critical introduction, in a beautifully illustrated presentation, to the books of the Bible. In Volume 4 top scholars such as David W. Baker, lead us through the biblical books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, and Daniel.
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. Analysis into the literature of the ancient Near East will open your eyes to new depths of understanding both familiar and unfamiliar passages, while over 2000 photographs, drawings, maps, diagrams and charts provide a visual feast that breathes fresh life into the text.
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.

I would definitely like to extend my Zondervan illustrated commentary collection to all the books of the Bible. It was a great value and the quality of the book is excellent. However, this commentary is not a verse by verse but more of a general idea of the topics.
