HarperOne: 30 Years of Biblical Scholarship

For the last thirty years, HarperOne has published essential references for students and scholars of Biblical literature. As we continue to update and revise classic titles, we also publish new books that will earn their place on every scholar's bookshelf.

The HarperCollins Study Bible has become the standard general reference for understanding the full meaning of this sacred book. This classic study Bible has now been completely revised and updated under the aegis of the Society of Biblical Literature—the preeminent academic association of the world’s best biblical scholars. It is available in several different formats to suit the needs of students and professionals.

The Green Bible highlights verses and passages that speak to God's care for creation highlighted in green. It also includes contributions by Brian McLaren, Matthew Sleeth, N. T. Wright, Desmond Tutu, an introduction to reading the Bible and the Old and New Testaments through a “green” lens, including what Jesus had to say about the environment, and a green Bible index and personal study guide.

The HarperCollins Bible Commentary by James L. Mays is available in a revised edition—making it the most up-to-date reference book of its kind for understanding and interpreting the meaning of the Bible.

The most authoritative and easy-to-use Bible pronunciation guide available, The HarperCollins Bible Pronunciation Guide can be used with any version of the Bible in English.

The HarperCollins Bible Dictionary puts the latest and most comprehensive biblical scholarship at your fingertips. Here is everything you need to know to fully understand the Old Testament, the Apocrypha, and the New Testament. For church Bible study groups, home schools, high schools, colleges, or personal study, it is also availble in a Condensed Version—which contains all the important names, places, and subjects that make Bible study come to life.

From the earliest evidence of humankind in Palestine to the establishment of the kingdoms of Judah and Israel, the ministry of Jesus, and the rise of the Christian Church, the richly illustrated HarperCollins Atlas of Bible History brings the Bible to life in its entire geographical context. Also included are detailed biblical references, timelines, and suggestions for further reading.

Perfect for students with little or no knowledge of the Bible, Biblical Literacy showcases the Bible stories that have most shaped history and our world and provides the key information we need to know for how to understand these profound stories. In addition, Timothy Beal delves into the important historical and cultural back-ground information so that readers can fully understand the impact of these stories on the world we live in now.
