The narratives, genealogies, laws, poetry, proverbs, and prophecies of the Old Testament are deeply rooted in history. Archaeologists, historians, and social scientists have greatly advanced our knowledge of the ancient world of the Bible. When we illuminate the stories of Abraham or David, the imagery of the Psalms or Proverbs, or the prophecies of Isaiah or Jeremiah with this backlight of culture and history, these texts spring to life. This unique commentary joins "The IVP Bible Background Commentary: New Testament" in providing historical, social, and cultural background for each passage of the Old Testament. From Genesis to Malachi, this single volume gathers and condenses an abundance of specialized knowledge - making it available and accessible to ordinary readers of the Old Testament. Expert scholars have included along with the fruits of their research: a glossary of historical terms, ancient peoples, texts, and inscriptions; maps and charts of important historical resources; expanded explanations of significant background issues; and introductory essays on each book of the Old Testament.
