Show and Tell Friday ~ Bible Commentary

I bought this two volume set of books after continually borrowing my daughters when she was in college. I found myself running to them frequently with questions I had or help in understanding a Bible passage I was reading.
Sometimes it is helpful to have background information when studying Scripture and this set has been so helpful.
Maybe you are following the schedule for the audio reading/listening plan for completing the Bible in a year. The link is over in my side bar.
It's pretty doable... just 12-15 minutes a day.
This set includes an Old and New Testament volume.
Each book of the Bible section includes an introduction including historical setting, characteristics, audience the book is addressed to, author and date, historical proof for the book, and the book's purpose.

There is a detailed outline of the book, and a commentary on the book.
Time lines too

I'm a preacher's kid and remember all of the various commentaries my dad kept in his office. What a lovely set you have.

I have these commentaries and I love them! Of course mine don't look nearly as nice as yours. Your photos are always so beautiful!

I loved your May in review collage. Hard to believe is already over!

My grandfather had these. He studied them well and taught a really interesting Sunday School lesson.

Those look wonderful. My husband finally finished buying a set that he has been getting in spits and spurts for the past few years. *We have to live within a budget* I'm sure he will want to look for another. I'll definitely tell him about these.

I LOVE meaty Bible study, don't you???
