The Bible was written in a distant time and place. It is filled with subtle references to a culture many of us don't understand. Now, we can bridge that culture gap and unfold new layers of meaning through Scripture by studying the historical context and unveiling the manners and customs behind the familiar stories.
This New Revised Standard Version Study Bible is packed with study notes to help reveal the customs, culture, history, and literature of Bible times. Journey back through time with historical references and understand the context of Scripture in a new way.
The NRSV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible, with notes from Dr. John H. Walton (Wheaton College) in the Old Testament and Dr. Craig S. Keener (Asbury Theological Seminary) in the New Testament, brings to life the ancient world of Scripture for modern readers.
