Looking for an easy-to-use comprehensive commentary? The Collegeville Bible Commentary (CBC) provides real literary, historical, and theological analysis without the complex debates and controversial viewpoints. Concise, yet thorough, the CBC brings together a wide variety of scholars and writers to give you a trustworthy, enlightening approach to Bible studies.
The one-volume edition of The Collegeville Bible Commentary was prepared to meet the needs of those students of the Bible who need reference to more than one book of the Bible or who prefer to use their own Bible. This commentary covers the complete canon and deuterocanon of the New American Bible translation, but can easily be studied alongside any translation. This edition contains both the Old and the New Testament editions that are normally sold separately.
This unique Logos edition makes Bible study easier than ever. All verse references appear on mouseover, giving you an instantaneous look at every reference cited without leaving your spot in the text. And by integrating this volume with your digital library, Logos’ system of cross-references and search guides becomes even better.
