    Excellent resource

    As a college student I have found all of the Cambridge Companions to be useful sources of information. This compendium is a wonderful source because it contains such a broad expanse of knowledge and essays. Information is given in a historical context which is invaluable in biblical studies. The analysis provided is insightful and educational as well as scholarly. I often cite them in my papers. Most images are black and white, but color is included as well.

    The book is divided into three sections: Israel and its early history (and the world of the Hebrew Bible); the period just before, during and just after Christ's arrival (this section covers the Jewish response to the Greek and Roman cultures); the formation of Christian communities (the early Christian church).

    What I like best about this particular volume, in addition to the fact that it covers such broad time frame, is that sidebars cover contextual subjects such as, "The Greek Hero" and "The Babylonian Job." These put the writers of the Bible (and other texts of that time period) squarely into the time frame in which they lived and allow the reader to gain insight into how they viewed their mission.
