New: Baker Exegetical Commentary on the NT – Rare 7-Day Sale

Baker Exegetical Commentary, New Testament, BECNT, WORDsearch, booksOne of our most frequently requested works is the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament (also known as the BECNT). It’s one of the most recent, scholarly, and conservative commentaries available. Today, I’m happy to announce this wonderful work is now available for your WORDsearch digital library. The kind of scholarship this 16 volume set delivers is expensive to produce, and those who purchase it in print form can expect to pay $785 plus shipping. But, for the next 7 days only, I’ve arranged an agreement with Baker Publishing, one of the most respected academic Christian publishers, to make it available in your QuickVerse library for only $499.95. We’re even offering an interest-free, easy payment plan. Just pay $50 now, take the whole set today, and pay the balance off in 9 more installments of $50. Click here for more details or to add the BECNT to your digital library today. Or, call us at 1-800-888-9898 and mention special offer 8296.

6 Reasons You’ll Love the Baker Exegetical Commentary

1. It’s Exegetical, carefully taking you verse-by-verse and passage-by-passage from Matthew through Revelation. The scholarly authors of this set don’t miss a thing. They apply the most up-to-date application of scholarship to every text. They dig deeply into areas of disagreement among theologians, giving the strengths and weakness of each side. The authors admit their own limitations, yet uphold a high standard towards biblical accuracy.

2. Language Issues are a critical concern. Whether you are a scholar or a layman, you will appreciate the brilliant way the BECNT handles explaining the nuances of the ancient languages. The Baker authors will take you deep into the Greek. If you read Greek (and many times the Hebrew, too), you’ll find they often cite the text in the original language. If you need a little help, you’ll find the transliteration, showing how it’s pronounced. Even if you have no Greek knowledge, the authors provide the closest possible translation and before long, many of these Greek words will become familiar to you.

3. Background material that’s like spending the day with a world-class historian. In each book, before you ever get to the commentary section, you’ll find a “book within a book” that offers rich background information including sections like: Overviews, Distinctive Aspects, Literary Matters, Historical Origins, Authorship, Textual History, Theological Emphases, Christology, Canonicity, Relationship to other books, and much more.

4. Surprising data that you may have never thought about. I never realized how often Matthew used the Greek word for Kingdom (basilleia) in his Gospel. It occurs 55 times, compared to 20 times in Mark, 46 times in Luke and only 4 times in John. You’ll find lots of charts that graphically demonstrate the harmony (and sometimes the contrast) of words used by the different writers who describe the same events.

5. Beautiful outlines that will assist you in organizing sermons and lessons. The book of Matthew is just 28 chapters in length, yet the outline of Matthew is 153 lines long. The authors of the BECNT do not overlook even the smallest detail. Just browse the outlines and you’ll get inspiring ideas.

6. QuickVerse makes it better than having a printed edition. You already know this, but QuickVerse saves you from hours of page turning to look things up. Searching is fast and easy, and your commentary stays in sync with any Bible translation of your choice. Click on a word to access your language tools for more information. Mouse-over a footnote to find a source. Find something you can use and drag it to a document where you’re creating a sermon or lesson.

Lowest Price Ever on the NIV Application Commentary

niv application commentary, niv, commentary, bundle, books, bible study, wordsearchToday I have wonderful news. Thanks to a special agreement with the publisher, we can offer the highly respected NIV Application Commentary at a very attractive price. We can only do this for 14 days. On July 28, we’ll have to raise it back to the regular price of $452.76, but right now you can add it to your digital library for just $299.95. Click here for more details or to add The NIV Application Commentary to your digital library today. Or, call us at 1-800-888-9898 and mention special offer 8279. Interest-free, easy payments are available.

This 20-volume New Testament commentary is equally praised by preachers, teachers, Bible scholars, and students. It is unique in its approach to helping you understand God’s Word. The NIV Application Commentary explains not only what the Bible meant, but it also gives extensive insight on how these words speak powerfully today. It provides help with both halves of the interpretative task: exegesis and theological application.

This is accomplished by taking you through 3 important steps with each section of Scripture.

1. Original Meaning explores the meaning of each Scripture in light of its historical and cultural context. Key Greek words are highlighted, explored, and explained. Difficult and controversial passages are discussed in detail. This first step is similar to what you might find in other commentaries.

2. Bridging Contexts is a unique feature that connects the world of the Bible with the world of today. You will enjoy how the authors take you deep into the culture and time of the biblical texts. They describe the sights, sounds, and smells that people were experiencing at the time of the writing. You’ll understand in precise detail the local customs, beliefs, and superstitions. You’ll learn what motivated ancient societies, what they feared, and how they sought relief from hardships we have never faced in our times.

3. Contemporary Significance is the final step that helps you apply the Bible to everyday life. This section allows the biblical message to speak with as much power today as it did when it was first written. You’ll find how it’s completely natural to apply what you learn about Jerusalem, Ephesus, or Corinth to our present-day needs in Chicago, Los Angeles, or London.

A Massive Amount of Inspiring Material

What impressed me most was the sheer volume of scholarly research and inspiring truths that are teachable and applicable. The NIV Application Commentary does not deal briefly with any passage. You’ll find page after page of discovery on each text. I found this commentary was difficult to scan because I wanted to read everything. It’s all fascinating and it will hold your interest.

Here’s a Tiny Sample from My Studies:

I was researching a familiar passage from the Sermon on the Mount: Matthew 6:19-34. It’s where Jesus was preaching about wealth, poverty, and freedom from anxiety. The NIV Application Commentary opens every section with the complete Bible text from the NIV translation. Here are a few tiny clips I copied and pasted from WORDsearch (much like you might do for a sermon or lesson). It comes from the overwhelming amount of content offered in this section:

Original Meaning – The key saying of this section is Jesus’ famous imperative, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness” (6:33). It continues the overall priority and teaching of the SM. The preceding section (6:1-18) indicates the kind of religious life that Jesus’ disciples will experience in the public realm under the influence of the kingdom of heaven.

Bridging Contexts – Negatively, Jesus warns against the everyday trouble about wealth (6:19-24) and worry (6:25-34) that can rob disciples of the kingdom’s priority in their personal lives. Positively, Jesus teaches how his disciples can live securely in the middle of their daily difficulties. The way for them to attend to their personal life is to prioritize their values so that nothing in this world supplants God as their Master (6:19-24) and Provider (6:25-34).

Contemporary Significance – The idolatry of worry. We probably do not think of worry as a form of idolatry, but it is when we allow it to take our eyes off of Jesus. We substitute despair, hopelessness, or fear in place of God and turn to our own efforts at trying to control our environment. I heard Warren Wiersbe make this comment during a chapel message: “It is often said that we are continually being crucified between two thieves—the regrets of yesterday and the worries about tomorrow.”
You owe it to yourself (and those you minister) to add this excellent commentary to your digital library. I guarantee you’ll be delighted or I’ll be happy to refund your purchase. Click here to download yours now and you can be enjoying it within minutes. Or, call us at 1-800-888-9898 and mention special offer 8279. Interest-free, easy payment options are available.

New Tools That Will Deepen Your Knowledge & Ministry

bible survey, survey, new testament, wordsearch, bundle, booksBible survey books can be a powerful ally in your study of God’s Word and your preparation for lessons and sermons. One of the great strengths of a Bible survey is how it takes each book of the Bible and connects it with all other books of the Bible. This weaving together of Scripture makes you more productive as you seek knowledge and inspiration in your Bible study, especially as you minister to others.

Today I’m announcing the release of a 2-volume Bible Survey Bundle. These are seminary-level textbooks, which under normal circumstances are expensive like all seminary books. Purchased in hardcover, you could expect to spend $109.98 for these volumes. For the next 14 days, you can add them to your digital library for a total cost of just $39.95. Click here to download this bundle now. Or, call us at 1-800-888-9898 and mention special offer 8288.

The Bible Survey Bundle – Includes:
The Cradle, the Cross, and the Crown: An Introduction to the New Testament
This New Testament survey is 976 pages in length, and it thoroughly introduces all 27 New Testament books. You’ll find a close examination of Christ’s incarnation and virgin birth, the heart of His ministry that is revealed in the Gospels, His passion, death, resurrection, the birth of the church, the epistles, and the triumphant return of Jesus and our eternal reign with Him as depicted in Revelation. This thorough text was authored by noted scholars Andreas J. Kostenberger, L. Scott Kellum, and Charles L. Quarles.

The World and the Word: An Introduction to the Old Testament
This fresh survey of the Old Testament is driven largely by the fact that so much Christian preaching and teaching today increasingly ignores what is 80% of the Bible. Authors Eugene Merrill, Mark Rooker, and Michael Grisanti work through the world and text of the Old Testament, and consistently emphasize:

  1. The Old Testament is a rich source of theology and doctrine that foreshadows the New Testament. Without it, Christian theology would be seriously deficient.
  2. Mastery of the Old Testament is crucial to an understanding of the New Testament.
  3. The Old Testament offers, by teaching and example, practical principles of belief and behavior for current times. Who God is and what He did then can be applied to the lives of men and women today.

Each of these 2 volumes is currently on sale for $24.95, but, when you take the 2-volume bundle, you’ll save an additional $10. Click here for more details or to add these excellent tools to your digital library today.
