The IVP Women's Bible Commentary Hardcover – February 7, 2002
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

From Library Journal
Some 88 women and men from around the world here provide commentary on most passages of the 66 books of the Protestant Bible, focusing on the meaning behind biblical gender interpretations. Designed to complement rather than supplement traditional biblical commentaries, their contributions are enhanced by 77 brief articles and 50-plus illustrations, tables, and more, all of which provide insight into biblical times and customs. Most of the commentary and brief articles include a basic bibliography, and both a scriptural and a supplementary article index enhance the volume. The inclusion of more Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox scholarship and full commentary instead of just an article on intertestamental history and literature would have increased the comprehensiveness and scope of this book, but it is nevertheless an admirable and very useful volume for lay people, clergy, and even biblical scholars. It is also the only commentary available with this specific focus; Women in Scripture: A Dictionary of Named and Unnamed Women in the Hebrew Bible, the Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical Books, and the New Testament is differently organized and comments on the women rather than on the biblical passages. Highly recommended. Carolyn M. Craft, Longwood Coll., Farmville, VA
