sharon briggs5 Stars Out Of 5June 6, 2010sharon briggsI found this comentary in our church library and checked it out. It had been ordered by one of our pastors, who had recently graduated Bible college. I have found it so enlighting, that I was getting tired of checking it out and decided to order my own copy. I have used it for BSF and the Kay Arthur study, and for preparing my lesson for 1st grade Sunday School. I even enjoy reading it , for enjoyment. It is a wealth of enfromation that opens up the whole meaning of each book of the bible. I also enjoy the history inserted.
Eloy5 Stars Out Of 5May 21, 2010EloyGreat commentary! The insight is scholarly, refreshing, and mixed with a slight devotional bent. What a fantastic group of international scholars that have been gathered for this work! Overall, very clear and concise. However, there is one very minor drawback; the actual material of the pages could have been slightly thicker in cases of underlining fragments or whole sentences. But this minuscule deficiency is nothing compared to how much use and insight a Christian will certainly gain into the mind of God! SDG! To God alone be the glory!
