This second edition of "The IVP Bible Background Commentary" by Craig S. Keener is an indispensable resource for gaining a deeper understanding of the cultural context of the New Testament. Craig Keener, a prominent New Testament scholar specializing in Jewish, Greek, and Roman culture, has expanded and updated this standard reference work to provide even more up-to-date information.

To truly comprehend and apply the Bible effectively, you need two essential sources of information. The first is the Bible itself, and the second is an understanding of the cultural background of the passage you are studying. Without knowledge of the background, it's challenging to grasp the author's original concerns and intentions.

This unique commentary is presented in a verse-by-verse format and offers the vital cultural background information you need for responsible and enriching Bible study. It includes a glossary of cultural terms, descriptions of important historical figures, maps, charts, up-to-date bibliographies, and introductory essays about the cultural background information for each book of the New Testament.

Based on decades of in-depth research and scholarship, this accessible and best-selling commentary is a valuable resource for various audiences:

  • Pastors can use it in sermon preparation.
  • Sunday school teachers and other church educators can incorporate it into their lessons.
  • Missionaries can rely on it to avoid importing their own cultural biases into their interpretation of the Bible.
  • College and seminary students can utilize it for classroom assignments.
  • Everyday Bible readers can use it to deepen and enhance their study of Scripture.

If you want to explore the New Testament in its cultural context and gain a richer understanding of the Bible, "The IVP Bible Background Commentary 2nd Edition" is an invaluable tool that should be in your library.
