The New Interpreter's Bible on CD-Rom
The best in contemporary biblical scholarship is now available on CD-ROM, making it easily accessible to thousands of students, pastors, and church leaders who prepare sermons, research papers, and lessons using their computers. The New Interpreter's Bible® on CD-ROM brings all 12 volumes of the print edition to electronic format.
Two leading translations, the NRSV and the NIV, appear in full above the text. Underneath is a detailed critical commentary, followed by "reflections," giving faith-and-life applications. Doing research for preaching and teaching couldn't be easier. "When the original Interpreter's Bible appeared in the 1950s," writes Catholic Biblical Quarterly, "it was characterized by three things: the best American Protestant scholarship available, extreme ease of use for pastors and teachers (large print, 12 manageable volumes), and extensive reflections on the homiletic and theological ramifications of the commentator's presentation. All three are maintained in a handsome new revision with one important shift: now the commentators represent Catholics and Jews as well, women and minority scholars too; they provide a much richer perspective on the text than in any other commentary series currently available." List price $780.00.
