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 5 top scholars such as David W. Baker, lead us through the biblical books of The Minor Prophets, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Songs.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.

Review 1 for Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary, Vol. 5 The Minor Prophets, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs
Date:February 4, 2010
Very well produced volume - layout, graphics and pics. Info is very helpful to understanding underlying history and culture of particular Biblical times. I have already learned quite a bit that I hadn't learned previously. (I am an educated layman.) However, it is sometimes easy to become lost in the details. Seems to show an evangelical, somewhat baptistic slant. Great set, and nice to be able to purchase a volume at a time for an otherwise rather costly set - especially for one like me whose income is limited.
