Saturday’s Roundup

roundup, wordsearch

Please tell me when you’ll have the Word Biblical Commentary!” Well folks, it’s here! This whole week here at WORDsearch was focused on getting the WBC released and out to you, and we are so grateful for your patience! In case you missed it, here are some more details, along with what else you might have missed this week.

The Word Biblical Commentary – Unmatched Level of Precise Scholarship

The WBC is one of our most requested resources, and for good reason. It is highly regarded by pastors, preachers, teachers, and the academic community. Each commentator was chosen for his specific area of expertise, and you’ll experience this by the unmatched level of precise scholarship. Most commentaries tend to have a dominant focus that will be expositional, critical, summary, application, homiletical, or devotional. With the WBC, you get all of that in one commentary. The best part? For a limited time this set is available for $299.95, (aka only $5.17 a volume) so don’t miss this opportunity!

Enhance Your Understanding of the Bible – New Study Bibles

Another common request has been fulfilled this week – the excellent HCSB Study Bible content has been formatted for two more translations, the KJV and NKJV. All the maps, photos, illustrations, charts, articles, and word studies that make the HCSB Study Bible so popular are included.  In WORDsearch, Study Bible Notes can be used with any translation, but with this content, the difference is any time a verse is quoted in the study material, it will be quoted in the translation of your preference.

Oh, and don’t forget there are only a few days left to get the Adrian Rogers videos. After October 2, they will no longer be offered for sale.

The Cornerstone Biblical Commentary

It contains outstanding scholarship because the commentators are many of the same scholars who were involved in translating the NLT.

This 18-volume set has a retail price of $511.10, but, for the next 14 days, you can add it to your digital library for only $149.95. Click here for details. We’ll even be happy to set up 3 interest-free payments of $50. Just call us at 1-800-888-9898 and mention special offer 8055.

Tyndale’s Cornerstone Biblical Commentary – Fresh, Accurate Scholarship

I really like this commentary, and I think you will too. It covers 61 of the 66 books of the Bible and was designed to help pastors, teachers and students of the Bible understand every thought contained in the Bible. Each volume contains a well-researched introduction presenting a full book outline and detailing important facts about the author, the audience, the canonicity and textual history, the literary style, the historical reliability and the book’s major themes and theological concerns.

Outlines, Overviews, Notes and Commentary

The Cornerstone Biblical Commentary focuses first on the words of Scripture, then on the theological truths of Scripture. For each book of the Bible, you’ll find a thorough outline and overview detailing the author, period and cultural considerations. Each Bible passage offers a Notes section, where the commentator helps you understand the Hebrew or Greek behind the English of the NLT, which is cited at the beginning of each section. Following this is the Commentary section that contains the real “meat & potatoes” of this excellent work.

For I can do all things through Christ…” Here’s Just One Example I Found:

Recently, I was studying Philippians 4:13. The Cornerstone Biblical Commentary made me aware that the Greek texts vary in this case. Some have the word “Christ” in it and some do not. So, who is it I can do all things through anyway? Cornerstone makes a brilliant defense of the fact it is Christ and Christ alone who Paul is talking about. See for yourself, and I think you’ll agree. Commentaries like this make the study of God’s Word exciting and fun.

18 Volumes, Each Just $14.95, Covering 61 of the 66 Books of the Bible

Try one of these volumes and see if you agree. Save even more by taking the bundle. I doubt you’ll find a better addition to your digital library.

Preaching the Word Series – 75% Off – 5 New Volumes Added

preaching_the_word_newToday I’d like to introduce you to an excellent commentary series by Dr. R. Kent Hughes. Dr. Hughes is a highly regarded Bible scholar, who also pastored a church in Wheaton, Illinois for 27 years. Preaching the Word Series is an award-winning commentary, specifically written to serve those who preach. This 29-volume bundle contains 11 OT volumes and 18 NT volumes. The regular price for this set is $761.55, but, for the next 14 days, it’s on sale for just $189.95JUST CLICK HERE. If you prefer ordering by phone, call us at 1-800-888-9898 (mention special offer 6729).

A Commentary for Preachers, Written by a Preacher
The noted theologian J.I. Packer tells us that throughout the history of the church, “working pastors have been proving themselves to be the best of all Bible expositors. Kent Hughes stands in this great tradition, and his exciting expositions uphold it worthily.” I’ve recently been reading this series, and I completely agree with Dr. Packer.

Inspiring Scholarship Combined with Superb Writing
Hughes is not only a respected Bible scholar, but he is also a gifted writer. Some commentators feel obliged 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.

Not Too Much Nor Too Little
Hughes gives each passage the exact amount of attention it deserves. For example, Genesis 49 is the chapter where the dying patriarch, Jacob, gathers his 12 sons for the blessing. Hughes devotes several chapters of his commentary to narrate this blessing. He details the blessings and curses delivered to each son, explaining the meaning of each phrase. He alerts us to words of prophecy, and then he leads us forward in the Bible to see where each prophecy was fulfilled. I found this a beautiful piece of writing and scholarship. It’s typical of Hughes’ work.

Preaching That Pleases God
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.

I hope you’ll take advantage of this great sale and add the Preaching the Word Series to your WORDsearch library. I guarantee you’ll be delighted or your money back. Click here to purchase or review a list of the volumes included in this set. If you have any questions or would like to bundle this with any other books, call us at 1-800-888-9898(mention special offer 6729).

The Most Requested Bible Commentary Is Now Available

believersbibcommWithout a doubt, the Believer’s Bible Commentary has been the most requested commentary that we’ve released in years. Today I’m happy to announce it’s now available for your digital library. Highly-sought commentaries are usually expensive, but not this one. It’s only $39.95 and you can quickly download it and be using it within minutes. Just click here. If you prefer to order by phone, call us at 1-800-888-9898 and mention special offer 6558.

The Believer’s Bible Commentary — A Masterpiece by Dr. William MacDonald
This work by Dr. William MacDonald is a gem of a commentary. Whether you are a seasoned minister or a new Christian, you’ll find something new and applicable in every chapter. Sometimes MacDonald takes a verse-by-verse approach, and when appropriate, his comments follow the Bible text paragraph-by-paragraph. The result is afocused examination of the entire Bible. MacDonald wisely relegates most technical issues to his endnotes, but he never dodges difficult passages or convicting applications.

An Easy to Read Commentary for Personal Study, Preaching & Teaching
There are good reasons the Believer’s Bible Commentary has been translated into 24 languages. First, it’s because the straightforward truths in this work can be understood by people from every culture. Second, Dr. MacDonald has refused to accept author’s royalties, directing them all to creating foreign translations.

Easily Understood Applications
Here’s an example I found this morning while reading Matthew 7:1. You know the passage, it’s where Jesus said, Do not judge, so that you won’t be judged. MacDonald offers wisdom on this verse byspecifying what we should not judge, such as the motives, appearance, conscientious scruples or the service of a fellow believer. Furthermore, MacDonald reminds us this is not in conflict with the command for Christians to use good judgement to discern between good and evil. He lists 6 specific examples, each with supporting scripture references. If you’re like me, you’ll find this kind of godly advice quite helpful.

MacDonald Explores “Typology.” I Found This Fascinating!
Typology is the study of people, events or statements found in the Old Testament that foreshadow people, events and things found in the New Testament, or what is referred to as types. MacDonald draws our attention to these types often. For example, in discussing 2 Samuel 15:23, MacDonald comments onKing David’s flight from Jerusalem in order to save his own life from his son Absolom. MacDonald reminds us a thousand years later, David’s descendant, Jesus Christ, took this same route into the cityto give his life as a ransom.

If ever there was a commentary that didn’t waste words, this is the one. MacDonald even inserted helpful maps and charts in just the right spots to help you visualize and understand important Bible truths. I’d like to invite you to add this excellent resource to your digital library today. JUST CLICK HERE. Or call us at 1-800-888-9898 and mention special offer 6558.
