The NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible is designed to bring the ancient world of the Scriptures to life.
My favorite living New Testament scholar, Craig Keener, is one of the editors of this amazing resource. (Keener is a friend and my historical advisor on Jesus: A Theography, God’s Favorite Place on Earth, and The Day I Met Jesus.)
Keener handles the commentary on the New Testament and John Walton handles it for the Old Testament.
I heartily endorse this new Study Bible.
Here’s a video which introduces the Bible followed by two endorsements.
“How I wish someone had put a book like this into my hands 50 years ago.”
~ N.T. Wright, Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, University of St. Andrews, Scotland
“I cannot recommend a study Bible any more than this one: Five stars!”
~ Scot McKnight, Julius R. Mantey Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary
