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.

Ray Beck5 Stars Out Of 5July 21, 2008Ray BeckThe Preacher's Commentary on Ezekiel is an excellent resource for both teacher, pastors, and anyone who desires a deeper knowledge of this wonderful and often neglected book. The historical background, expositional format, and how the teachings of Ezekiel relate to present Christianity are invaluable in applying God's Word to our lives. Most importantly, Ezekiel waste no time in taking the reader into the very throne room of God. I have been teaching O.T. Book surveys during Sunday School (a single book being surveyed each class session) and the Preacher's Commentary is one of the most valuable resources in regard to these sessions. I highly recommended Ezekiel and the entire Preacher's Commentary Series.
