Zondervan Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary, Vol. 1 Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy

The Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary presents a scholarly and critical introduction, in a beautifully illustrated presentation, to the books of the Bible. In Volume 1 top scholars such as David W. Baker, lead us through the biblical books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.

Each book is set in its original historical and social context, and major issues such as translation, chronology, and authorship are presented in detail via a passage-by-passage commentary.

This series, or its individual volumes, with its informative commentary and beautiful photographs, insightful outtakes, will make an excellent home school curriculum, church, curriculum, and would be perfect for courses in a Christian high school. It will also be ideal for anyone who wishes to undertake a comprehensive, but introductory study to specific sections of the Bible, or the Bible in its entirety.

It is helpful to get a sense of the culture as brought out by various writings and archeological findings. In the story of Sodom and Gom.,they offer the miricle in a way that makes me feel that God had prepared ahead-from creation; or that God used what was already at hand in His creation; or it -possibly- the rain of brimstone would have been God's choice anywhere. God is great-this book increases my awe.
