If you are seriously trying to study the bible but need a little help understanding some scripture this is the commentary for you. Dr. McGee speaks in a way that everyone can understand no matter what level of education you may have. He is able to keep your interest with life experiences and tempers things with just the right amount of humor yet never straying from what each verse has to say.
This is the most useful commentary ever written. It is so obvious that God's hand is all over this. I have been listening to J. Vernon McGee for years and years now. I bought this set after about a year of listening to him and after 20 years, I still use it every day. I thought that after a time as new events unfold it would get old and I would need to update, but NO! He hits the mark every time. I Know He prayed and God revealed. It is such a comfort to know that in today's world, we still have an anchor that holds. Thank you Dr. McGee for leaving this wonder work for us and for your faithfulness to Our Lord while here on this earth. See you soon.
Outstanding commentary set that I am reading from cover to cover and adding countless notes to my Bible. As a senior citizen I love his old fashioned humor that he sprinkles thru out his comments and he is very insightful on his explanation of text.
I have been on the Bible bus with Dr. Magee for many years. This particular set was purchased one book at a time YEARS ago..unsure when. Since then, I have purchased 3 other sets: one for our church library, and 2 for individuals. Am now ordering another set for my daughter and husband. He truly "puts the cookies on the bottom shelf" for all of us.
I ordered two different commentaries and Dr. McGee's is by far the best, easiest to read and understand. There is a lot of extra information in his books that it makes you feel like you are in the story. Reading this set of commentaries makes each verse and chapter of the bible come to life. Best investment that I have ever made.
