  • John

    $40.00

    This series is designed for those who know biblical languages. It is written primarily for the pastor and Bible teacher, not for the scholar. That is, the aim is not to review and offer a critique of every possible interpretation that has ever been given to a passage, but to exegete each passage of Scripture succinctly in its grammatical and historical context. Each passage is interpreted in the light of its biblical setting, with a view to grammatical detail, literary context, flow of biblical argument, and historical setting. While the focus will not be on application, it is expected that the authors will offer suggestions as to the direction in which application can flow.

Written by some of the world’s most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament.

  • Gospel According To Luke

    The newest installment of today’s premier mid-level Bible commentary series, James Edwards’s Pillar volume on Luke devotes attention throughout to the vocabulary, historical background, special themes, and narrative purpose that make the Third Gospel unique among the four Gospels.

    Edwards counterbalances the generally recognized Gentile focus of Luke by highlighting Luke’s overarching interest in depicting Jesus as the fulfillment of God’s providential work in the history of Israel. While fully conversant with all the latest scholarship, Edwards writes in a lively, fluent style that will commend his commentary on Luke to ministers, students, scholars, and many other serious Bible readers.
