Product Description

The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability.

Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.

    Dave Martin
    The book of Job is often a daunting challenge. It's length, repetitive nature, and gloomy tone may make it seem like an unpleasant chore to rear. David McKenna's excellent commentary, however, brings out the profound wisdom and practical application of the book in a way that makes Job a fascinating read. McKenna shows how the book eloquently answers some of the most difficult questions of the faith. Why does God allow good people to suffer? Is suffering a sign of secret sin? Why does God apparently not respond to prayer? Though the questions seem simple, they cannot be answered simply. But they do have answers, and the answers are there for anyone patient enough to mine the book and collect these nuggets of wisdom. McKenna brilliantly shows that Job (and we) often ask the 'Why' question when we really should be asking the 'Who' question. He illuminates Job's flashes of insight in ways that help light our path. For anyone who, like me, used to dread having to slog through Job, I strongly recommend David McKenna's book. With McKenna at your side, you may actually look forward to reading and re-reading this ancient book.
