The volume will include 16 full-color maps of high quality and a CD ROM. A dust jacket is included. This one-volume commentary was specifically requested by seminaries in the United Methodist Church who have agreed to coordinate or standardize the curriculum for the Local Pastors' Schools. Attendees of the Local Pastors' School are trained, over a five-year period, to serve in thousands of small churches. The seminaries have determined that one part of the curriculum is to be an NIB line of books: these include the Study Bible (already published), a One-volume Commentary (proposed), and an Atlas (to be proposed). Presbyterians and Baptists also have bi-vocational pastors who use similar tools, so that these groups will benefit from our developing a one-volume commentary as part of an NIB line of reference books.
