  1. Would like to let you know of the WORDsearch Userbook featuring the Commentary of the Bible by E.M. Zerr. The Userbook for WORDsearch Bible can be downloaded at the following website:

    Currently, this Commentary includes Verse-by-Verse Commentary for the Books of Jeremiah through the Book of Revelation. The Downloadable file is Approx. 13.2 MB in size. I am still in the process of finishing the Book of Jeremiah. The Minor Prophets and the Entire New Testament are complete. Hope to have the Major Prophets finished soon. Then I will work on the Wisdom Books, then the History Books of the Old Testament.

    Those who know about this Commentary, which is available in Paperback format, can tell you that it is far superior to B.W. Johnson’s People’s New Testament Notes. It features commentary and notes on virtually every verse and/or chapter in the Bible. This version for WORDsearch is based on Zerr’s Commentary published in 1947 and 1952…

    As each book is added to the commentary, I will post it to the webpage listed above. So please check back periodically for the latest update(s)…

    PS. Sorry for the typos…. When this Commentary was first published, most of the Popular Translations today hadn’t even been published yet…
