Overview
An indispensable resource for all students of the Bible, accessibly providing the cultural background of every verse in the New Testament.

To understand and apply the Bible well, you need two crucial sources of information. One is the Bible itself. The other is an understanding of the cultural background of the passage you're reading.

Only with the background can you grasp the author's original concerns and purposes. This unique commentary provides, in verse-by-verse format, the crucial cultural background you need for responsible--and richer--Bible study. It includes a glossary of cultural terms and important historical figures, maps and charts, up-to-date bibliographies, and introductory essays about cultural background information for each book of the New Testament.

Based on ten years of in-depth study, this accessible and bestselling commentary is valuable for pastors in sermon preparation, for Sunday-school and other church teachers as they build lessons, for missionaries concerned not to import their own cultural biases into the Bible, for college and seminary students in classroom assignments, and for everyday Bible readers seeking to deepen and enhance their study of Scripture.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great info, even for stories you've known all your life!  Mar 8, 2007
I've found it to be priceless to have this book (and the OT edition also) at the table whenever doing a Bible study. When I do group Bible Studies (especially inductive studies), people love to crack this reference book open so that they can get more clues into the significance of objects and names and motivation of the characters in the Bible. I am not a Biblical scholar, so there would simply no way for me to learn about some of the more obscure details we come across during even common passages for study. I also own the electronic version of this book, so that I have it with me wherever I go with my laptop.
 
Most Bang for the Buck  Nov 3, 2006
If you're looking for a one-volume commentary on the New Testament, look no further. This one is everything a great reference source should be. Instead of simply repeating what each passage says (the approach used by most works) this book gets the reader into the real, flesh and blood, everyday world behind the bible, and shows you how the two relate to each other. The result is a vastly increased understanding of the Bible's true message.

The writing style is very understandable. The comments strike a nice balance between dealing with textual/critical issues and providing a background from which life application principles can be derived. Suitable for laypeople, scholars, and ministers alike, I give this commentary the highest recommendation. I would also recommend purchasing a book such as "Everyday Life in New Testament Times or "Harper's Ecncyclopedia of bible Life" in addition as a helpful supplement.
 
An Enriching Look at the Cultural and Historical Background of each New Testament Verse  Jul 7, 2006
I was given this book as an ordination present back in 1996, and I have used it faithfully ever since. It is the work of Craig Keener, New Testament professor at Eastern Seminary. He works verse by verse from Matthew through Revelation, giving cultural and historical information that lies behind the text. He teaches about the different kinds of tax collectors, the roles and responsibilities of the teachers of the law, and Jewish customs and traditions that bring to light the meaning of certain verses.

This is one of the first books I consult when I am researching information for a Sunday sermon, and I am always rewarded with something to chew on to give to my people. I highly recommend this resource as one of the ten books every Bible teacher should own.
 
Extremely useful guide!  Jun 30, 2006
I've found the commentary to be the most useful reference tool in my Bible study library!
 
IVP Bible Background Commentart  Mar 13, 2006
I find that as a teacher of a Bible class, this book helps me teach my students (no mater what age) what it was like back then and I am able to explain what the Bible verses mean. It is a wonderfull book, A must if you want to know what the LORD is saying
