Dr. McDowell Contributes to the The Baker Illustrated Bible Background Commentary

The Baker Illustrated Bible Background Commentary was released this week. It features articles on the Canaanites, the Canaanite Religion, and the Philistines, by Dr. Catherine McDowell (MAOT ’96, MAR ’97), Associate Professor of Old Testament at Gordon-Conwell—Charlotte. Dr. McDowell also provided the commentary on the books of 1 Kings and 2 Kings.

“We are far removed from the time and culture of the biblical world, and this distance easily leads to misunderstanding and misinterpretation,” says the publisher. “Our understanding and appreciation for God’s Word increase exponentially when we know about the context in which the biblical books were written. So while many Bible commentaries explain the theological meaning of the text, The Baker Illustrated Bible Background Commentary provides fascinating cultural and historical insights into God’s Word.”
