If you only have one commentary-this is the one to have
August 27, 2015
I have used LABC for fifteen years. I have used it as a source for sermons, Bible studies, personal devotions, and background for my personal writing. I have not found a more well-rounded Bible study aid than LABC. Its clarity and ease of reading make it an excellent tool to bring understanding down to the level of those of us who do not reside in ivory towers. The applications portions and charts are extremely useful for personal study, or helping to make the Bible come alive for others. This is an easy 5 star choice.
What is the most important responsibility that our God and Lord has asked us to do in our life in this world? One should question them self and try to find it out. This commentaries is the answer. As written in the title, its LIFE APPLICATION. All though it is necessary to know how important our forefathers were, now the even more important issue is how is our relationship with our God thru Christ. How do we develop this and attain the mind and heart that our Lord requires from us. So it is important to know how to apply the words from early Church brothers in our life's today. This commentary would help us do the same. Just what is needed for each individual's spiritual growth.
This commentary set is exactly what it says it is: an application commentary. The classic question we get as pastors is this: "How does this 2000-year-old passage of Scripture APPLY to my life today?" The application commentary helps me as a pastor better answer those questions for the people in the pews. It also sparks some of my own thoughts as I'm inspired by its ideas. This is not a deeply intellectual commentary set, but if you're looking for help and fresh ideas for your Sunday morning sermons, this is a good place to look.
