  • 1, 2, And 3 John

    $24.99

    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.

  • Book Of Judges

    $40.05

    Eminently readable, exegetically thorough, and written in an emotionally warm style that flows from his keen sensitivity to the text, Barry Webb’s commentary on Judges is exactly what is needed to engage properly a dynamic, narrative work like the book of Judges. It offers helpful guidance to Christian preachers, teachers, students, and other readers not only on unique features of the stories themselves but also on issues such as the violent nature of Judges, how women are portrayed in it, and how it relates to the Christian gospel of the New Testament. Rather than overload the body of his commentary, Webb concentrates on what the biblical text itself throws into prominence, and he gives space to background issues only where they throw significant light on the foreground. For those who want more, the footnotes provide helpful guidance. The end result is a welcome resource for interpreting one of the most challenging books in the Old Testament.

  • 1 And 2 Thessalonians

    $22.64

    1 and 2 Thessalonians is another release in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series—the only commentary series with a graphical display, theology in application section and identification of the main idea for each section. Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament brings together commentary features rarely gathered in one volume. Written by notable evangelical scholars, each volume treats the literary context and structure of the passage in the original Greek and each author provides an original translation based on the literary structure. The series consistently provides a main point, exegetical outline, verse-by-verse commentary, and theology in application in each section of every commentary. Critical scholarship informs each step but does not dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on the biblical author’s message as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find these books beneficial.

  • Pauls Letter To The Romans

    $29.99

    In keeping with the aims of the Pillar series, Colin Kruse in this commentary explains Romans to serious pastors, teachers, and students of the Bible. Kruse — a well-known evangelical scholar — solidly bases his exegesis on the Greek text, in conversation with scholarly literature, both ancient and modern, and with special attention to the literature of the last thirty years.

    This commentary shows how Paul expounds and defends the gospel against the background of God’s sovereign action as creator, judge, and redeemer of the world. In the process, Kruse elucidates Paul’s teaching about matters of concern in the Roman house churches — issues that remain important today. Kruse’s clarity and economy in dealing with such complex and important matters, along with the other features mentioned above, promise to make this commentary an enduring standard for years to come.

  • Luke

    $42.99

    Luke is the fifth release in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series-the only commentary series with a graphical display, theology in application section and identification of the main idea for each section. Luke sought to assure believers about the truth of the gospel (1:4) and to advance their understanding of God’s ways in the world as revealed in Christ’s ministry, death, and resurrection.

    Luke wrote as a historian, theologian, and pastor, and Garland’s commentary strives to follow suit in assisting those who will preach and teach the text and those who seek to understand it better.

    The commentary presents a translation through a diagram that helps visualize the flow of thought, provides a summary of the central message of the passages, reveals how they function within the gospel, and offers an exegetical outline and verse-by-verse commentary that takes notice of Jewish and Greco-Roman background evidence that sheds light on the text.

    Christians interpret the Bible to make sense of their lived experience, and the commentary highlights theological emphases of each passage and applies them to the everyday struggles of faith and practice.
