The one volume, hardcover edition of The Collegeville Bible Commentary was prepared to meet the needs of those students of the Bible who need reference to more than one book of the Bible or who prefer to use their own Bible. It contains the same expert commentary that characterized the series of booklets; the authors have even adapted their commentary to accord with the New American Bible (1986) text. The full Scripture texts are not included in this commentary only edition. The commentaries, while reflecting the latest in biblical scholarship and study, are written in easy to understand language, avoiding the more technical language of scholars. Thus readers need not be biblical scholars to understand them. Thirty two pages of full color maps illustrate places of biblical importance.". . . the most accessible single volume guide to the Bible issued under any auspices."
