Known for the high quality of its publications, InterVarsity Press is a trusted source of Christian scholarship. The resources included in the IVP Reference Collection (12 vols.) will enable your studies of the backgrounds and contexts surrounding the Biblical texts. These materials provide something for everyone regardless of their background or experience, whether you are a layperson, pastor, student, or scholar.
Included in this collection is the IVP Bible Dictionary Series, a unique reference resource on the Bible. It serves to bridge the gap between scholars and those pastors, teachers, students and lay people desiring in-depth treatment of select topics in an accessible and summary format. Articles contained in each volume cover traditional and contemporary biblical topics, including cross-sectional themes, methods of interpretation, significant historical or cultural background, and each Old and New Testament book as a whole.
