In this episode of the Author Talks with Shaun Tabatt Podcast I interview David W. Baker about his book Isaiah volume from the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary Old Testament series (Zondervan, 2013).
About the Book & Series:
Many today find the Old Testament a closed book. The cultural issues seem insurmountable and we are easily baffled by that which seems obscure. Furthermore, without knowledge of the ancient culture, we can easily impose our own culture on the text, potentially distorting it. The Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary invites you to enter the Old Testament with a company of guides, experts that will give new insights into these cherished writings.
Isaiah features include:
* Over 2000 photographs, drawings, maps, diagrams and charts to provide a visual feast that breathes fresh life into the text.
* Passage-by-passage commentary presenting archaeological findings, historical explanations, geographic insights, notes on manners and customs, and more.
* Analysis into the literature of the ancient Near East that will open your eyes to new depths of understanding both familiar and unfamiliar passages.
