After a brief essay that introduces each book, a verse-by-verse commentary follows. Drawing upon linguistic analysis, archaeological evidence, history, other ancient Near Eastern literatures, and the like, the commentary provides the historical and cultural background against which the texts can be read and understood. --from publisher description.… (more)

The commentary is a major achievement: a great amount of effort has gone into creating the vast assemblage of illustrative material.
added by Christa_Josh | editVetus Testamentum, Robert P. Gordon (Jan 1, 2011)
This reference work is highly recommended. It is very easy to read with excellent content. Its doctrinal viewpoint is somewhat neutral, examining the evidence and not concerned with orthodox teaching—that is left to the teacher. This would make an excellent addition to a pastor's or Bible student's library.

Still, I say thank you to John Walton and company for a task well done supplying information and commentary badly needed.
added by Christa_Josh | editReview of Biblical Literature, Trent C. Butler (Jan 1, 2010)
Anyone who has ever coordinated and edited a volume involving chapters by different authors will at once recognize the complexity of this sort of enterprise. Multiplied by five, Walton and the Zondervan editorial team have done a great job—something that pastors, students, scholars, and interested nonspecialists will appreciate. While not aiming at the same level, as, for example, the Context of Scripture volumes, it nevertheless provides readily available comparative data (that are also affordable), presented in an attractive and didactic manner, that will open new vistas to many nonspecialist readers.
