How many of us can say that we really understand the Bible? Its stories take place in distant lands and remote times that we know about only dimly. The customs of its people are often strange to us, their language foreign. And yet, we know that this Bible provides spiritual nurture and direction to millions of people today, although these millions belong to many different religious persuasions. The HarperCollins Study Bible is the key of discovery for unlocking the ancient past and the enduring legacy of the Bible. This up-to-date study Bible offers the full text of the New Revised Standard Version coupled with fascinating and informative notes by sixty-one leading experts on the books of the Bible.
