Happy Saturday everyone! We hope you had a great week. Here is what you might have missed at WORDsearch recently.

This year for our Christmas sale, we’re trying something a little different. If you don’t see the book you want on the Christmas sale page, just email or call us, tell what book you want to see in the sale, and our customer service team will respond to your request with the best deal possible.

The sale already includes some of our new releases and some of our most popular study tools and bundles, including most of our Bible translations. And the best part? You can use promo code 8573 to get $10 off a purchase of $20 or more. As an added bonus, when your order totals $50 or more, you can request a free upgrade to WORDsearch 10!

“The one object of the Holy Scriptures is to reveal the person and portrait of Jesus. This is the key to its interpretation.” – A.B. Simpson

One of the coolest things about WORDsearch is that we can find and provide electronic versions of hard-to-find print volumes. The Christ in the Bible Commentary is one of those – out of print and highly sought out by preachers and students of God’s Word. And for good reason! Simpson (1843-1919) was a prolific preacher, author, and theologian, known for making a significant contribution to worldwide evangelism. Simpson’s insight into the Scriptures reads as fresh today as when it was written.

Simpson finds Christ everywhere. He believed that Christ can be found on every page of the Bible, and his commentary backs up his conviction. It is also outline with alliteration. Check out The Christ in the Bible Commentary set now while it is 73% off.

Saturday Roundup

roundup, wordsearchHappy Saturday everyone! We’ve had a pretty cold week down here in Austin, but some of our WORDsearch team have been over in San Diego at the Evangelical Theological Society Meeting (ETS 2014). Hope if you were there you stopped by and said hi! Here is what else you might have missed this week at WORDsearch.

Dr. Boice’s commentary series is a treasure for the church and for her pastors. No expository preacher can afford to be without it.” – Dr. R.C. Sproul

As a student of God’s Word, you’re probably familiar with James Montgomery Boice. Dr. Boice was a reformed theologian and pastor who passed away in 2000, but he left us with a wonderful collection of his expository commentaries.

Boice has long been known for combining careful scholarship with clear communication on a personal level. Boice’s work is extremely thorough, leaving no stone unturned. He really did his homework, saving you time in research. As you know, the book of Genesis has 50 chapters. Boice’s commentary on Genesis is 3 volumes with 180 chapters! His commentary on the Gospel of Matthew is 2 volumes, with an additional volume dedicated to the Sermon on the Mount. In addition to his own insights, Boice also quoted J.I. Packer, H.C. Leupold, Leslie C. Allen, Alexander Maclaren, Arthur W. Pink, A.W. Tozer, and Roy Clements. Boice delivers exactly what you need in ways you don’t even anticipate.

Get the Boice Expositional Commentaries now while they are at such a low price. The sale ends November 24!

Doubt is a real feeling most  of us who follower Jesus go through at some point in our lives. We face hard questions about our faith, sometimes from others, but often from within. The Fortify Your Faith Library was assembled to help you tackle these questions head-on. These tools can help you in your ministering to others. Learn to understand, defend, and proclaim your belief.

Quick Reminders:

The Preaching the Word Series sale ends Monday. (That’s in 2 days!)

Saturday Roundup

Happy Saturday everyone! Here is what you might have missed this week at WORDsearch.

First, we released some new volumes in the Preaching the Word commentary set. The series is edited by Dr. R. Kent Hughes, who is a highly regarded Bible scholar who also pastored a church in Wheaton, Illinois for 27 years. The Preaching the Word Series is an award-winning commentary, specifically written to serve those who preach. This 36-volume bundle now covers all of the New Testament, except for 1 Corinthians, and much of the Old Testament.

In his introduction, Hughes has a lot to say about preaching in a way that is pleasing to God. He says that with the right frame of mind, “we will not be preaching our own thoughts about God’s Word, but God’s actual Word, his logos. This is fundamental to pleasing him in preaching.” Hughes certainly practices what he preaches.

Hughes is not only a respected Bible scholar, but he is also a gifted writer. Some commentators feel the need to dissect each and every word, and, although this is helpful, sometimes it can be difficult reading. Hughes never stumbles. His thoughts flow effortlessly as he describes each Bible passage in a way that’s easy to visualize. Read more about this series.

Second, we created a $1.99 Commentary Sale to help you try out some of our best commentaries without having to buy the entire set. If you find that you love a certain commentary and want the whole set, for the month of November you can give us a call and we’ll set you up with our best price to complete the set.

Happy November roundup readers! The quotes above are just a few of the responses we received when we asked you the number one reason to use Bible software on Facebook. It was fun to hear how our work helps you in your ministry, and we are so grateful for your participation! If you haven’t liked us on Facebook yet, what are you waiting for? Join the conversation!

Anyway, back to the reasons for using Bible software. This week here at WORDsearch, we were pretty excited to get published on LifeWay’s Pastors Today site. Have you checked it out yet? There are articles covering all kinds of topics related to the work you do in ministry, including ours this week, 5 Ways Bible Software Can Improve Your MinistryBesides that, here’s what else you might have missed at WORDsearch this week.

Spurgeon: More Prolific in Preaching, Writing, Studying, and Bible Scholarship than Most Anyone Who Ever Lived

Did you know that the most complete collection of Charles H. Spurgeon, the “Prince of Preachers,” is available from WORDsearch? The sheer volume of his work is astonishing considering he died at 57. Driven by the Holy Spirit with a passion to preach, he was wise beyond his years. The material he left in the form of published works has been a tremendous blessing to students of the Word.

Our Spurgeon Collection contains 91 volumes on prayer, church, church growth, Bible history, culture, sermons, theology, and more. You’ll even get to know Spurgeon better with the 14 biographies in this set, including his own autobiography.

Exposition with alliteration is my style.” Donald L. Cantrell’s New Commentary Snapshots

Donald Cantrell is one of our most popular authors. He knows how to jump-start your thinking by offering beautifully alliterated outlines for preaching and teaching. “Each outline is offered as a kind of seed, something that can be planted in your heart as you serve the Lord,” he says. “Of course, these seeds have the potential of blossoming into full blown sermons, and I hope some of them do so in your ministry.”

His new Bible Commentary Snapshots cover the gospels through Acts, along with a bonus Christmas volume. You’ll also find that all of Cantrell’s other works are 50 percent off!

Reminders:

The All Series sale ends Monday.
