The biblical scholarship behind The New Jerome Biblical Commentary is now made accessible in a Bible Handbook for use in schools and parishes, as well as for individual use. No academic language or footnotes.

The New Jerome Biblical Commentary holds a pre-eminent position in serious academic Bible study. The Bible Handbook brings the fruits of this study outside the academic sphere to all those in parishes, courses, and schools who read the Scriptures, in groups or individually. This simplification has been prepared with the help and advice of the three editors of The New Jerome Biblical Commentary and each article has been submitted for approval to its orginal author.

The New Jerome Bible Handbook—the perfect guide for those who would grow in wisdom of the Word.
