Beverly Roberts Gaventa, David L. Petersen, David L. Bartlett

Hardback 2010-07-01

Pastors and students who want a one-volume commentary to complement the New Interpreter's Study Bible will be pleased to find in this product the quality of scholarship that is a hallmark of other NIB products. Those who cannot afford to buy a full set of the NIB commentary series will be able to afford this one-volume commentary. ??The portability and accessibility of the one-volume commentary will appeal to professors and students as well as lay persons and pastors. ??The One-Volume commentary replaces the very successful Interpreter's One-Volume Commentary on the Bible, Charles Laymon, ed. (Abingdon Press, 1971), which went through its fifteenth printing in 1994. ??Like the old volume, the new volume will contain articles on all the books of the Bible, including the Apocrphya, as well as numerous general articles on biblical interpretation, geographical and historical setting, literary criticism, religion, text, canon, translation, Bible and preaching/teaching, with bibliographies for each article. Extra value includes: chronology/timeline, table of measures, and table of money, a subject index, and will be one of the only one-volume commentaries on the market to contain a scripture index. A dust jacket is included
