Archaeological Study Bible
My new Archeaological Study Bible (NIV) arrived today. Just in time as my old NIV is starting to fall apart after 28 years (Dec 78). Now I just have to transfer 17 years of sermon notes and comments over to the new bible!
I'm very impressed with the new study notes, including cultural and historical notes, Ancient texts and artifacts, Ancient peoples, lands and rulers, Archaeological sites, reliability of the Bible, book introductions, ancient voices (quotes from other documents), Glossary, Subject index, article index and 160 page concordance. Over 520 notes in all. The total pages total 2306. It will get you in shape for a dig just carrying it.
While the paper is not glossy the photo's are in full colour (over 500) and the paper is even tinted to look like ancient parchment. a very beautifully crafted bible.
I was told by a good friend of mine that Dr. Bryant Wood (Associates for Biblical Research) wrote 1/3 of the notes. I haven't asked him yet if it is true but it would not surprise me and I notice some of his traits in the articles on Ai and Jericho.
