One of the amazing distinctives of the Bible is its unity. It is in reality a book containing many books, written over centuries by all kinds of peopleshepherds and kings, priests and prophetsyet it paints one big, remarkably clear picture. This cohesiveness is what makes the Bible unique.
The NIV Compact Bible Commentary explains the Bible book by book. But unlike other commentaries, it begins with the larger contextthe Bible as a wholethen shows you how all its books fit into the grand picture. Instead of a verse-by-verse exposition, it unlocks the meanings of larger sections of Scripture. Youll see how key themes, concepts, and even specific terms from earlier books of the Bible are echoed and expanded on in later books.
If youre serious about studying the Bible, if you need a resource to prepare a Bible lesson, or if you simply want to know the Bible better, this is one commentary you should have, even if you already own several. Written by respected theologian John Sailhamer, its insights offer valuable, wide-angle perspectives on the central messages of Scripture, and its compact size makes it perfect for school, church, the workplace, and as a travel companion -- Publisher

Presenting the NIV Compact Series in softcover. Smart. Convenient. Keep the whole set within reach on your desktop. Grab a volume or two volumes and take them with you anywhere. Each NIV Compact book packs a lot of information in a small package--one that fits where other books won't and travels light when larger volumes tip the scales. And the price is as compact as the size--but don't let the modest cost fool you. There's a lot of knowledge here, condensed to provide the most salient information in an efficient format. For a hand-sized reference library that does more than scratch the surface, this 4-volume series is the route to take: big on insight, small in size, and easy on the pocketbook. Now in softcover, the NIV Compact Series includes: ? NIV Compact Bible Commentary--Begins with the larger context--the Bible as a whole--then shows how all its books fit into the grand picture. It offers valuable, wide-angle perspectives on the central messages of Scripture ? NIV Compact Nave's Topical Bible-- Based on the NIV Nave's Topical Bible, this compact edition omits biblical text while retaining topical muscle. And like its full-sized counterpart, it improves on the original, KJV-based edition by adding more than 500 headings, 2,000 subtopics, and 1,300 cross-references. ? NIV Compact Concordance-- This streamlined adaptation of the award-winning NIV Exhaustive Concordance provides more than 50,000 references and over 2,000 exhaustive entries for practical and significant Bible study. ? NIV Compact Dictionary of the Bible-- This unique volume is actually three books in one: a dictionary for easy-to-find, practical information on thousands of topics; a topical index for detailed study of nearly 150 larger topics; and a survey providing an introductory overview of the Bible, biblical history, and biblical culture
