What are...


What are Handbooks?

  • Offer entries relating to people, places, customs, doctrine and biblical criticism. Entries can vary in length from very brief to in-depth studies that are multiple pages.
  • Highlight biblical text through short Bible commentaries, maps, historical backgrounds, archaeological background, tables of weights, lists of kings, and much more.
  • Illuminate aspects of the Bible for greater understanding.

Here is an example from Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary Genesis 9:21. "And he drank of the wine, and was drunken—perhaps at the festivities of the vintage season. This solitary stain on the character of so eminently pious a man must, it is believed, have been the result of age or inadvertency."
