**UPDATE 9/6/13: Jim is the winner of our giveaway this week. His favorite section from Numbers through Ruth is "The Israelites moving into their promised land." Thanks to everyone who participated and shared!


Today's giveaway is a member of The Expositor’s Bible Commentary series that's put world-class biblical scholarship in reader’s hands for generations. It is volume 2, covering Numbers–Ruth.

The new thirteen-volume series builds on the original twelve-volume edition, which has been a trusted source and staple in college and seminary libraries and pastors’ studies worldwide. This second volume marshals the most current evangelical scholarship and resources in order to help students and pastors carefully exegete Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, and Ruth.

The thoroughly revised features include:

  • Comprehensive introductions
  • Short and precise bibliographies
  • Detailed outlines
  • Insightful expositions of passages and verses
  • Overviews of sections of Scripture to illuminate the big picture
  • Occasional reflections to give more detail on important issues
  • Notes on textual questions and special problems, placed close to the texts in question
  • Transliterations and translations of Hebrew and Greek words, enabling readers to understand even the more technical notes
  • A balanced and respectful approach toward marked differences of opinion
