A top-quality handbook illuminating the Bible's background, contents, and interpretation.
Travelers about to visit a foreign country often study a guidebook with information about that country. Especially helpful are clear, easy-to-use maps, background information on the local area, and articles about important sites to visit.
Similarly, the Bible confronts many readers today with a kind of "foreign country in writing" whose customs and culture aren't always clear. The Eerdmans Companion to the Bible will greatly help readers navigate unfamiliar biblical terrain and deepen their knowledge of areas already familiar to them.
Over two hundred user-friendly maps, charts, graphics, and photos bring ancient places to life. Numerous articles offer significant insights into the Bible's people, places, and main ideas. Travelers who visit specific individual books will find in-depth, illuminating commentary based on up-to-date research.
Reflecting a broad evangelical perspective, The Eerdmans Companion to the Bible continues the publisher's proud tradition of providing quality biblical resources for nearly a century. This handy guidebook promises to make the Word of God come alive as never before.
