I was supposed to join in a blog tour about the new NIV Faithlife Study Bible, but got overwhelmed. But I still want to make sure that I mention it, because I have to at least share what got me excited about this study Bible. As is often the case with such volumes, it was was an infographic:
I’ve blogged about artistic renditions of ancient Hebrew cosmology here on the blog before. But this seems particularly appropriate to mention on the day when Ascension Day, and the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, coincide. What better to raise the question of how our view of the cosmos today relates to that found in the Bible? And what better day to highlight a study Bible that challenges readers to think about these things?
