Publisher's Description

To craft informed sermons, pastors scour commentaries that often deal more with minutia than the main point. Or they turn to devotional commentaries, which may contain exegetical weaknesses. The Teach the Text Commentary Series bridges this gap by utilizing the best of biblical scholarship and providing the information a pastor needs to communicate the text effectively. By keeping the discussion of each carefully selected preaching unit to six pages of focused commentary, the volumes in this series allow pastors to quickly grasp the big idea and key themes of each passage of Scripture. The text and its meaning are made clear, and sections dedicated to effectively teaching and illustrating the text help pastors prepare to preach. Full-color illustrations, maps, and photos are included throughout each volume to illustrate the world and events described in the Bible.

The first two volumes of this series edited by Mark L. Strauss and John H. Walton are Romans and 1 & 2 Samuel.

Endorsements

Few commentaries help the reader move beyond study to thoughtful application, and fewer still move beyond application to teaching. That's why I am thrilled with the Teach the Text Commentary Series from Baker. Pastors and teachers are going to love this series. I highly recommend it.
-George H. Guthrie,
Benjamin W. Perry Professor of Bible, Union University, Jackson, TN

Pastors, communicators, and fellow Bible teachers, shove some books over and make room on your shelves. The Teach the Text Commentary Series was specifically envisioned with us in the lens and emphasizes precisely what matters most: communicating the heart of the authoritative text itself. Here is the best of biblical scholarship made accessible, applicable, and relevant to life right here on the hot pavement where we need it most.
-Beth Moore,
author and teacher

Most commentaries are either too technical or too light to be of much help, leaving us to wander through the text on our own. Accurately balanced between good scholarship and solid preaching perspectives, these commentaries provide an unusually deep and relevant approach to the text. If you take preaching and teaching the Word seriously you must take this series seriously as well.
-Joe Stowell,
President, Cornerstone University

I love Bible commentaries. But, some are too much; some are too little. The Teach the Text Commentary Series lands right in the middle--the best of scholarship in a manageable size for busy pastors and teachers.
-Leith Anderson,
President, National Association of Evangelicals, and Pastor Emeritus, Wooddale Church, Eden Prairie, MN

The Teach the Text Commentary Series builds a wonderful bridge between the academic works of the past and contemporary works of the present day. The content is easy to comprehend while giving enough meaty knowledge so everyday students and teachers of the Bible can grab hold of the powerful text with an assurance of sound interpretation. I can't wait for my first copy to sit squarely on the corner of my desk!
-Dr. David Anderson,
Lead Pastor, Bridgeway Community Church, Columbia, MD

"The Teach the Text Commentary Series is a perfect tool for the pastor looking for 'sermon-ready' insights. They not only provide the most relevant 'sermon-friendly' information but organize it in a manner that makes it simple for the pastor to use."
-Miles McPherson,
Senior Pastor, The Rock Church, San Diego, CA

We live in an era that desperately needs to hear not more cheap advice about successful living but "the words of eternal life." That means burrowing deeply into Scripture--and coming out again with fresh theological and spiritual insights for living. The Teach the Text Commentary Series does that admirably. I love the way it connects text to background to theology to illustration. I can't recall any commentary series that has done all that better.
-Mark Galli,
Senior Managing Editor, Christianity Today

I cannot think of a more urgently needed commentary series for the life of a pastor or teacher. There is far too much teaching that does not give the learners the depths and theology of Scripture that they deserve to hear. That is what makes the Teach the Text Commentary Series so unique and extremely needed today. I personally think that the Teach the Text Commentary Series should be read not only by pastors or teachers but by all Christians who desire to understand the incredible richness of the Bible in our lives.
-Dan Kimball,
author of They Like Jesus but Not the Church and teacher at Vintage Faith Church, Santa Cruz, CA

The Teach the Text Commentary Series is an ideal tool for busy pastors and teachers. Written by top-notch scholars, who 'get it' when it comes to understanding the weekly pressure of preaching a weekly sermon, these volumes get right to the heart of each biblical passage, with sound exegesis, theological insights, and relevant application. I highly recommend the series.
-Pastor Jim Garlow,
Skyline Church, La Mesa, CA

Teach the Text is the kind of commentary I have looked for for a long time. It deals with the kinds of questions that busy pastors have to ask and answer in order to preach the Scriptures every week. I commend it to those of you who are in that kind of ministry.
-Haddon Robinson,
Harold John Ockenga Professor of Preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

Rarely does a commentary series provide strong practical application alongside the exegetical analysis and insight of a biblical text. The beauty of the Teach the Text Commentary Series is that it does both! This series is ideal for the pastor that not only wants to communicate theological truth, but wants to do it in a way that is relevant and effective in today's culture.
-Jarrett Stephens,
Teaching Pastor, Prestonwood Baptist Church, Plano, TX
