Congratulations to Wycliffe's professor of Old Testament, Glen Taylor whose commentary on Hosea in volume 5 (entitled The Minor Prophets, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs) has just appeared in the Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary Set just published by Zondervan.
The series brings to life the world of the Old Testament through informative entries and full-colour photos and graphics. Here readers find the premier commentary set for connecting with the historical and cultural context of the Old Testament.
Among the endorsements of the set from are one from Shalom Paul, Professor Emeritus and former Chair of the Bible Department, Hebrew University, who comments: “This is an impressive and rich resource for scholars, students, seminarians, and interested lay readers. The volumes, with their insightful and perceptive commentaries, updated footnotes, wonderful illustrations, and sidebars—all judiciously researched—contain a veritable thesaurus of enlightening information relating to the Hebrew Bible within the cultural, ideological, and religious world of the ancient Near East. Notwithstanding their traditional approach to Scripture, I heartily recommend this series with enthusiasm.”
The commentary is available for purchase through CRUX Bookstore at Wycliffe College.
