Our understanding and appreciation for God's Word increase exponentially when we know about the context in which the biblical books were written. This colourful one-volume background commentary provides fascinating cultural and historical insights.

:We are far removed from the time and culture of the biblical world, and this distance easily leads to misunderstanding and misinterpretation. Our understanding and appreciation for God's Word increase exponentially when we know about the context in which the biblical books were written. So while many Bible commentaries explain the theological meaning of the text, The Baker Illustrated Bible Background Commentary provides fascinating cultural and historical insights into God's Word. Richly illustrated with full-color photos throughout, this one-volume background commentary includes articles by leading Old and New Testament scholars on subjects such as

- countries, cities, and cultures of the Holy Land and the Greco-Roman world
- warfare and execution
- religious groups and customs
- fashion, athletics, feasts, and celebrations
- honor, shame, and hospitality
- and much more

This colorful, informative volume is an essential companion for pastors, teachers, and laypeople who want to enhance their personal Bible study and help others do the same.
