This commentary is part of a series that interprets the books of the Bible from a Wesleyan perspective. While it is designed primarily with lay people in mind-Sunday school teachers, Bible study leaders, students of the Word-pastors will also find it most helpful. Following the New International Version, each book of the Bible is explained paragraph by paragraph, illuminating the key concepts of each passage and how they relate to our lives and times today. At the same time, the authors slow down often to examine particular details and alternative understandings that are important for comprehending the bigger picture.
An excellent resource for personal study, and especially helpful for those involved in the teaching ministries of the church, the Wesley Bible Commentary series will encourage and promote life change in believers by applying God's authoritative truth in relevant, practical ways. Written in an easy-to-follow format, you will enjoy studying Scripture insights that are faithful to the Wesleyan-Armenian perspective.
