One of my favorite Bible teachers encouraged us to “study wide and then narrow our focus.” Understanding the big picture is key to good exegesis. It protects us from falling into the trap of interpreting verses before appreciating the context of the book, chapter, and pericope being studied.
With this principle in mind, I give you the Zondervan Reference Collection. These six volumes will help provide context for your studies. With two dictionaries, an atlas, a Bible dictionary, a companion to Psalms, and a look at life during biblical times, you’ll have the big-picture foundation needed for better Bible study.
This collection includes essential helps for every Bible reader, springboarding beginners into better Bible study and providing rich tools that seasoned scholars will use again and again.
Pick up this collection while it’s on Pre-Pub and you’ll get these six volumes for less than $100—that’s a savings of nearly $50!
