The narratives, genealogies, laws, poetry, proverbs and prophecies of the Bible are deeply rooted in history. Archaeologists, historians and social scientists have greatly advanced our knowledge of the ancient world of the Bible. When we illuminate the stories of Abraham or David, the imagery of the Psalms or Proverbs, or the prophecies of Isaiah or Jeremiah with this backlight of culture and history, these texts spring to new life.
Now you can take advantage of this wealth of knowledge in a detail-rich yet highly accessible two-volume commentary set from InterVarsity Press. The IVP Bible Background Commentary: Old and New Testament
excels in providing historical, social and cultural background for each passage of the Bible. From Genesis through Revelation, you will find an abundance of specialized knowledge including:
• a glossary of historical terms, ancient peoples, texts and inscriptions
• maps and charts of important historical resources
• expanded explanations of significant background issues
• introductory essays on each book of the Bible
