Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.
