The Holman Illustrated Bible Commentary: by- E. Ray Clendenen & Jeremy Royal Howard (ISBN-9780805499308)
An Easy-to-Use Visual Commentary from Genesis to Revelation
The Holman Illustrated Bible Commentary is a comprehensive yet concise resource for any
student of the Bible, including teachers and pastors. From Genesis to Revelation, it provides the reader with essential information and insight that can be a clarifying touch point at every stage of preparing to teach or preach.
The commentary illuminates each passage in the Bible by focusing on a verse or a few verses at a time. Each Bible book has an introduction, and the outline in that introduction serves as the headings in the commentary on that book. This enables the reader to move from the big picture to the details in section-by-section fashion. The commentary is illustrated with photos and other graphics that bring the world of each Bible book to life. Also, each book of the Bible includes a substantial bibliography that enables the reader to explore more deeply elsewhere.
For each book of the Bible, a powerful introductory section gives an overview that includes:
► Circumstances of Writing
► Message and Purpose
► Contribution to the Bible
