Timeless. Empowering. Inspired.
True. The Holy Bible is the Word of God for the people of God, whose
task it is to bear witness to the work of God in the world. For
generations, this book has served to define the identity of the church and shape
its mission. Taken together, the Old and New Testaments tell the story of a God
who creates, calls, and covenants with people, a God who makes all things new.
At the heart of this story is the person of Christ, the one in and through whom
Christians read all Scripture.
Baylor Annotated Study Bible represents a monumental collaborative effort, bringing together
nearly seventy biblical scholars?Baylor faculty, graduates, affiliates, and
friends?to refresh our view of the sacred texts. Each of the sixty-six canonical
books of the Protestant Bible is given an introduction and commentary
intended to immerse readers in the literary, sociohistorical, and theological
depths of Scripture. In addition, the intercommunication and echoes between the
biblical books are exhibited through a rich assemblage of cross-references.
Rounding out this indispensable study aid are a biblical timeline, glossary of
terms used in the introductions and commentaries, concordance to the New Revised
Standard Version translation, and full-color maps.
