9780060655488: Harpercollins Bible Commentary

Newly revised, this one-volume Bible commentary features some of the best scholars in the world, analysing in depth the content of each book of the Bible.

This completely revised edition offers concise, lucid, expert guidance on every aspect of the Bible – the Old and New Testaments, and also the Apocrypha.

The contributors represent the best scholarship available today: James Mays of Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, Virginia, USA is general editor, and he has assembled an outstanding team of editors and contributors including Beverley Gaventa of Princeton Theological Seminary, Carol Newsom and Gene Tucker, both of Emonry University, Atlanta, Georgia, David Peterson of Iliff School of Theology, Denver, Colorado, as well as Luke Timothy Johnson, P. Kyle McCarter Jr., Lawrence H. Schiffman and Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza.

Together they have produced a first-class presentation of biblical knowledge that is accessible to the general public for reference at home or in study groups, yet highly useful also for priests and ministers wanting a succinct, reliable handbook.
