Great for the beginning of serious study. If you use this for your Bible studies, you will grow deeper in the word. For the next go round then buy a deeper set. Every time we read through the word it increases our knowledge. This is a wonderful start at understanding the word.
A MUST HAVE commentary set for every serious student of God's Word!!!
March 4, 2015
This commentary set has been a tremendous help in my walk with the Lord. Dr. Warren Wiersbe is a true man of God, who has written this series in such an easy to understand format, anyone can pick it up and receive wonderful verse by verse explanations/meanings and insight into God's Word. Though I have been a believer/follower of Christ most of my life, I have not had any formal Bible training, yet Dr. Wiersbe writes with such clarity and in a "down to earth" fashion, it is a thorough encouragement and makes me want to dig into God's Word even deeper and learn and grow more. This series of commentaries more than met my hopes and expectations, and if I could give it more than five stars, I would! I wish I had this set many, many years ago!! Thank you, Dr. Wiersbe, for your wonderful work and to CBD for making it available at a reasonable price!
I have enjoyed using some of Wiersbe's individual study books on the books of the Bible and was happy to discover these 6 volumes (at a good price) that contain those studies on all of the Bible books. The volumes are good quality; the pages are not thin but have a good thickness, and the print is not small. Each volume has a similar graphic but different color, with the cover indicating the first and last book covered in each volume. If you like Wiersbe, then this set is a great buy, and it will save you a lot of money from buying each individual study guide.
Wiersbe is a good go-to person for an overall commentary for private or group Bible study. I still think one should consult other commentaries, but Wiersbe is one of my favorites. He clearly holds Scripture in the highest regard and honors Christ in the way he writes.
After decades away from active Bible study, I have been inspired by the compassionate and inspired direction of a wonderful interim pastor here in Castroville, TX. He recommended the Warren W. Wiersbe Commentaries for a study support system. Along with this, I have used the excellent study guides by Paul Blackham available on-line.
I highly recommend both - but Wiesrbe's Commentary seems to track somewhat better with my Life Application Bible, so I have opted to use them and then check back with Paul Blackham's guides to ensure I haven't missed anything.
Again, highly recommend Wiersbe for anyone who is interested in advancing their spiritual and academic knowledge of the Bible and its meaning for individual study.
