The Anchor Bible Project, consisting of the Anchor Bible Commentary Series, Anchor Bible Dictionary and Anchor Bible Reference Library is a scholarly and commercial co-venture that began in 1956, when individual volumes in the commentary series began production. Having initiated a new era of cooperation among scholars in biblical research, over 1,000 scholars—representing Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, secular, and other traditions—have now contributed to the project. Their works offer discussions that reflect a range of viewpoints across a wide theological spectrum. The Anchor Bible Project continues to produce volumes that keep readers current on recent scholarship and are grounded in analysis. The works bring advances in science and technology to bear on biblical materials, making historical and linguistic knowledge related to the interpretation of the biblical record available to experts and students alike. As of 2005, more than 120 volumes have been published, each edited by David Noel Freedman, General Editor and published by Doubleday (Random House).

Anchor Bible Commentary Series

The Anchor Bible Commentary Series, created under the guidance of William Foxwell Albright (1891–1971), comprises a book by book translation and exegesis of the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament and the Intertestamental Books (Apocrypha). For each biblical book, the series includes an original translation (with annotations, including alternative translations) of ancient texts, using modern knowledge of the ancient languages; overviews of the historical, critical, and literary evolution of the text; an outline of major themes and topics; a verse-by-verse commentary; treatment of competing scholarly theories; historical background; and photographs, illustrations, and maps of artifacts and places associated with biblical figures and sites. Lengthy or complex biblical books are covered in more than one volume. William Foxwell Albright (May 24, 1891 - September 19/20, 1971) was an evangelical Methodist archaelogist, biblical authority, linguist and expert on ceramics. ...

The series is 99% complete; the second half of Exodus was released in early December 2006, and the remaining volumes (e.g., Nahum) are in production. Additionally, many new volumes, such as Proverbs 10-31 and Mark 9-16, are in the final stages of production. Others such as II Chronicles and Revelation are under contract.

The "Dictionary" includes articles on the Dead Sea Scrolls, early Jewish-Christian relations, the historical Jesus, sociological and literary methods of biblical criticism, feminist hermeneutics, and numerous entries on archaeological sites, as well as bibliographies with citations listed individually at the end of each article.

Anchor Bible Series - definition of Anchor Bible Series in Encyclopedia (445 words)
The Anchor Bible Series is a scholarly and commercial co-venture that has been setting a high standard during the decades during which its individual volumes have appeared.
These volumes are not designed for the casual Bible reader, but for the educated layman who is already prepared with a general understanding of and interest in modern biblical scholarship.
The series is complemented by the Anchor Bible Dictionary, a comprehensive collection of scholarly articles on biblical studies that is a rival to The Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible (1962).
New International Version - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (458 words)
The New International Version (NIV) is an English translation of the Christian Bible which is the most popular of the modern translations of the Bible made in the twentieth century.
It is considered by many Christians a good, modern supplement to more historic bible translations like the King James Version, or even as more accurate (since it draws from a wider range of source texts including the Dead Sea Scrolls).
Among these are The NIV Study Bible and its Wesleyan revision, The Reflecting God Study Bible, as well as The Life Application Study Bible.
