Best for ?  Please elaborate a bit about what historical background is desired.

Looking at => http://www.logos.com/comparison noticed 11 dots for Platinum resources in "Bible History and Culture"

If looking for Second Temple historical background, may want to consider => In the Shadow of the Temple

Sam West:
best Historical background rescourse

Not sure about best but for the New Testament I do like:

deSilva, David Arthur. An Introduction to the New Testament: Contexts, Methods and Ministry Formation. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2004.

http://www.logos.com/product/2944/an-introduction-to-the-new-testament

I do have Platinum but I don't think that this was included.

In general, most good single volume commentaries will be a good start, again one that I quite like is:

Dockery, David S. Holman Concise Bible Commentary: Simple, Straightforward Commentary on Every Book of the Bible. Nashville, TN: Broadman & Holman Publishers, 1998.

You will find widely differing opinions as to which commentaries are best. Take a look at http://bestcommentaries.com/ There you will find rankings for each book of the Bible.

One resource to consider => The Writers of the New Testament: Their Style and Characteristics that is included in => William Henry Simcox Collection

Another one to ponder (bit older) => Studies on the New Testament that is included in => Frédéric Louis Godet Commentary Collection

Noted some Greek Language insights in => The Use of the Septuagint in New Testament Research and => Sources of New Testament Greek that is included in => Harry Angus Alexander Kennedy Collection

Logos has product guides => http://www.logos.com/products/guides that include => Cultural & Historical Background , => Hebrew Texts and Tools , => Greek Bible Texts and Tools , and => Septuagint

I agree Pedro. The Zondervan Illustrated Bible Background Commentaries are hard to beat.  They are my favorites.
