Many today find the Old Testament a closed book. The cultural issues seem insurmountable and we are easily baffled by that which seems obscure. Furthermore, without knowledge of the ancient culture we can easily impose our own culture on the text, potentially distorting it. This series invites you to enter the Old Testament with a company of guides, experts that will give new insights into these cherished writings. Features include * Over 2000 photographs, drawings, maps, diagrams and charts provide a visual feast that breathes fresh life into the text. * Passage-by-passage commentary presents archaeological findings, historical explanations, geographic insights, notes on manners and customs, and more. * Analysis into the literature of the ancient Near East will open your eyes to new depths of understanding both familiar and unfamiliar passages. * Written by an international team of 30 specialists, all top scholars in background studies.… (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.
added by Christa_Josh | editBulletin for Biblical Research, Gerald A. Klingbeil (Jan 1, 2010)
