  • New insights, New understanding

    By EAllenWalk
    The notes in this Bible are written by men and women who have lived in biblical cultures. Their understanding of issues that faced people in Bible times comes from firsthand experience! They have lived where their village worshiped carved images. Some had a mother who was one of several wives. Men have negotiated a price for their wife with their future in laws. They have known tribal wars. Enough said - the men and women who wrote these notes bring insights into biblical culture and thinking that no Western theologian has. New understandings delight me over and over again!
  • This Bible is amazing!
