It offers a unique perspective on the Word, it is particularly exciting to see how the Old Testament fits into the overall history of the world. I enjoyed the fact that the authors review a number of options for certain sticky aspects and provide sufficient justification for their chosen interpretation.
This is such a refreshing change from the usual Bible with commentary, definitely worth buying.
