Focusing on all things digital.




In order to better facilitate Bible study courses, Fortress Press divided their 2 volume Fortress Press Commentary of the Bible into corresponding study guides focusing on specific books of the Old Testament, Apocrypha, and New Testaments. The idea was to provide Bible students with text that allow them "to gain respect for the antiquity and cultural remoteness of the biblical text and to grapple for themselves with the variety of their possible meanings, to fathom a long history of interpretation in which the Bible has been wielded for causes both beneficial and harmful; and to develop their own skills and voices as responsible interpreters, aware of their own social locations in relationships of privilege and power".
