Customer Reviews for Zondervan John

Zondervan John

Brimming with lavish, full-color photos and graphics, the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary walks you verse by verse through all the books of the New Testament. Written in a clear, engaging style, this beautiful set provides a new and accessible approach that more technical expository and exegetical commentaries don't offer. It features commentary based on relevant papyri, inscriptions, archaeological discoveries, and studies of Judaism, Roman culture, Hellenism, and other features of the world of the New Testament, hundreds of full-color photographs, color illustrations, and line drawings, copious maps, charts, and timelines, sidebar articles and insights, and "Reflections" on the Bible's relevance for 21st-century living.

Andreas J. Kvstenberger (Ph.D., Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) is professor of New Testament and Greek and director of Ph.D./Th.M. studies at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina.

One of the best commentaries out there today, it's easy to understand, with maps, pictures of old statues, coins etc. It's helps you to understand each verse and what it means in the context of the scripture so you can get a clear understanding of the scripture. Thumbs up !!!

I LOVE this entire SERIES of commentaries. I'd rank them as an excellent tool for "intermediate" Bible study - above "beginner" phase but not quite "expert" level. (And, I rank myself the same - intermediate bible student).I am a "dual career" pastor - holding down a "secular" job while being responsible to teach on Sundays about 1/3 of the time. These books are an excellent tool, both to encourage my personal understanding of scripture, and also to give me "ammo" to help create/fill out sermons too.
