The Eerdman's Companion to the Bible by Gordon D. Fee & Robert L. Hubbard Jr. and published by Wm B Eerdmans & Co.
Travelers about to visit a foreign country often study a guidebook with information about that country. Especially helpful are clear, easy-to-use maps, background information on the local area, and articles about important sites to visit. Similarly, the Bible confronts many readers today with a kind of "foreign country in writing" whose customs and culture aren't always clear. The Eerdmans Companion to the Bible will greatly help readers navigate unfamiliar biblical terrain and deepen their knowledge of areas already familiar to them.
With over two hundred user-friendly maps, charts, graphics, and photos the The Eerdmans Companion to the Bible brings the ancient world of the Bible to life. Numerous articles offer significant insights into the Bible's people, places, and main ideas. Travelers who visit specific individual books will find in-depth, illuminating commentary based on up-to-date research. Reflecting a broad evangelical perspective this volume continues Eerdmans' proud tradition of providing quality biblical resources for nearly a century. This handy guidebook promises to make the Word of God come alive as never before.
