Product DescriptionMany people involved in the study of the Bible believe it is necessary to have a good commentary to complement and use along with their bible. Eerdman's Companion to the Bible is just such an important commentary. Just as you use a guidebook when visiting a new country, so a guidebook is necessary when visiting the Bible whose stories take place in a different time and culture. You can't get a true picture of what the stories in the Bible mean if you do not know what was happening in the culture at that time. The user friendly maps, graphics and photos in this commentary help bring the ancient world to life giving cultural subtext about things not known to the modern reader. Articles are included which add additional insight into the people, places, events and main ideas found in the Bible. Eerdman's Companion to the Bible acts as a path leading the reader through the layout of each book while giving a brief explanation about each section of the book. If you hope to get the most out of your bible study you will want to keep Eerdman's Companion to the Bible by your side to use as you make your way through the Bible.
