A top-quality handbook illuminating the Bible’s background, contents, and interpretation.

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.

Travelers who visit specific individual books will find in-depth, illuminating commentary based on up-to-date research.

  • Compiled by some of the foremost biblical scholars in the world today
  • New articles by sixty expert authors offer significant insights into the Bible’s people, places, and main ideas
  • Well-written background information and commentary on every book of the Bible
  • Illustrated with over two hundred user-friendly maps, photos, graphics, and charts to bring ancient places to life

Reflecting a broad evangelical perspective, The Eerdmans Companion to the Bible continues the publisher’s proud tradition of providing quality biblical resources for nearly a century.

I use this handbook when doing my daily devotions to help me get a better understanding of what I am reading. The information is just the right length to provide an overview that complements the reading of scripture.
