The commentary illuminates each verse in the Bible by focusing on a few verses at a time. The outline for each book serves as the headings throughout the commentary. This feature enables the reader to move from the big picture to the details in section-by-section fashion. The commentary is illustrated with photos and other graphics that bring the world of each Bible book to life for the reader. Also, each book of the Bible includes a substantial bibliography that enables the reader to explore more deeply.
