From the beginnings of "Genesis" to the end of "Revelation", this new study Bible is filled with informative articles and full-color photographs of places and objects that will open your eyes to the historical context of the stories you read and the people you meet in Scripture. From kings and empires to weapons of war to clay pots used for carrying water, the archaeological record surrounding God's Word will help contextualize and inform your personal study. It features: 4-color interior throughout; bottom of page study notes highlight and add further explanation to passages that speak on archaeological or cultural facts included in the Scripture.
It includes articles (520) covering one of the following five categories: Archaeological Sites (Hazor, Ugarit, Arad, Ephesus); Cultural and Historical Notes (ancient seals and scarabs, perfume and anointing, the missionary journeys of Paul); Ancient Peoples and Lands (the Persian empire, the history of Egypt); The Reliability of the Bible (the question of the Psalm superscripts, the reliability of Judges, the ending of Mark); and, Ancient Texts and Artifacts (the Mesha Stone, the Prayer of Confession). It also includes approximately 500 4-color photographs interspersed throughout, detailed book introductions that provide basic, at-a-glance information and detailed charts on pertinent topics. It also features in-text color maps that assist the reader in placing the action, and a CD-Rom containing "NIV" text and all photographs, maps, and charts included in the Bible.
