aldeureaux5 Stars Out Of 5Simply the BestNovember 5, 2014aldeureauxQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Best one volume commentary I have ever used....and I have used many! The more I used it the better I liked it. It is a "phrase by phrase" treatment of the text but, it does not avoid dealing with issues as they arise in most cases. I think it would be fairly easy to understand for a new believer, but useful for those further along the path as well. It was an invaluable resource in preparing lessons and sermons (along with my Thompson Chain Reference Bible). Hoped they would update it, but am a little afraid an update may not be as good as the original. Based on the KJV.

HopelesslyCalvinistAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent, Concise Single-Volume CommentaryJanuary 25, 2011HopelesslyCalvinistAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5With this purchase, I was looking for a single-volume, quick-access commentary for those times when I wanted my nose to be stuck in the Bible and not sorting through "heavier" commentaries. This book is more than suited to the purpose. It's a wonderful study aid that I find helpful for routine reading of the Bible -- and one that doesn't interrupt the flow of my Bible reading. Highly recommended!
Tom StreetAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5May 24, 2009Tom StreetAge: Over 65Gender: maleI have had a copy of The Wycliffe Bible Commentary for years. I use it when I a question about a passage of scripture. I like it because it presents several points of view instead of some books which gives the attitude, "this is the way I believe, so why present a diffent view point?" As Christian we should not be threatened by other views and knowing other views helps Christian to better defend the truth. It has been very helpful.
Rodney Graham5 Stars Out Of 5May 7, 2008Rodney GrahamPersonally, I have found Wycliffe's commentary very helpful from the first day I unwrapped it. When needing help understanding scripture, or to examine more closely a scripture - Wycliff's Commentary is precise, accurate, and informative. It has a prominent place place on my desk now - Along with the Bible, of course! It was interesting to note that on Chuck Swindoll's website in FAQ Chuck listed among his top favorites and books that have inspired him, Everett Harrison and Charles Pfeiffer's Wycliffe Bible Commentary, along with John Bunyan's Pigrim's Progress, and the works of C.S. Lewis.
