COPYRIGHT NOT covered - Click this link to request copyright permission:Abstract: Many today find the Old Testament a closed book. The cultural issues seem insurmountable and we are easily baffled by what seems obscure. Furthermore, without knowledge of the ancient context we can easily impose our own culture on the text, potentially distorting it. Combining informative entries and full-color photos and graphics, the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Background Commentary brings readers back to the ancient world in a way unlike other commentaries. Its unique visual approach--backed by the very best scholarship--will help readers connect with the historical and cultural contexts of the Old Testament.
