NIV Compact Bible Commentary-John Sailhamer
This compact Bible commentary explains the Bible book by book. But unlike other commentaries, it begins with the larger context-Bible as a whole-then shows you how all its books fit into the grand picture. This readable guide to the Bible is full of facts and pictures about the arts, culture, geography, geology, theologies, philosophies, and lifestyles of biblical times. It contains concise definitions of persons, places, objects and events, and invaluable summaries of the books of the Bible. Included is information about archaeological finds in the Holy Land and maps of the ancient world.
John H. Sailhamer is professor of Old Testament at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary in Brea, California and was formerly senior professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary..
