New Release: R.C. Sproul’s 6-Vol. NT Commentary

SproulCommentToday I’m delighted to announce the new release of a 6 volume commentary by one of today’s most respected Reformed Bible scholars, R.C. Sproul. Dr. Sproul is a prolific writer, having authored over 80 books for the edification of believers worldwide. This commentary bundle, the St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary, is available in hardcover elsewhere, usually with a list price around $210.95. For a limited time, our introductory sale price on this set is just $49.95. Click here to add this excellent scholarship to your digital library today. Or, call us at 1-800-888-9898 and mention special offer 8245.

The Preaching & Teaching Commentary of R.C. Sproul

Like me, you may wonder how this work got the title of St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary. In 1997, Dr. Sproul was invited to the pulpit of St. Andrew’s Chapel in Sanford, Florida. Dr. Sproul was determined to preach each Sunday morning, and he chose to preach through books of the Bible, a dedicated ministry he continues today. This commentary is the result of Sproul’s preaching ministry, and everything in this set has been preached by Dr. Sproul at St. Andrew’s Chapel. This makes the material all that more adaptable for use in your own preaching and teaching ministry.

This bundle covers every passage in the New Testament books of: Matthew, Mark, John, Acts, Romans, and 1-2 Peter. You’ll discover a great deal of horsepower in these volumes.

R.C. Sproul is a Passionate Defender of Christian Faith

Whether or not you are in agreement with Reformed theology, I’m confident you will find yourself in agreement with the vast majority of what Dr. Sproul teaches in these commentaries. You’ll find his research is deeply rooted in Scripture, and he shores up all his points with specific, relevant passages from God’s Word.

Dr. Sproul often pauses to point out key words from the Greek. He holds them up to the light and explains deeper truths that are not always obvious upon the first reading. I found this extremely helpful. Sproul also employs practical applications and personal anecdotes that inspire us to take action.

Fearless When It Comes to Sin – Sproul Tells It Like It Is

When it comes to godlessness and sin, R.C. Sproul pulls no punches. He constantly reminds us of how fortunate we are to be redeemed by such a generous and loving God. He’s not afraid to come right out and expose the brutal truth.

I was reading his commentary on Romans, which, by the way, is so good, it’s worth the price of the entire set (if you don’t agree, I’ll happily refund your purchase). As you know, Romans 1:18-25 deals with sin and the wrath of God. Sproul covers this passage thoroughly and beautifully. I was inspired by his fearlessness when I read one of his personal side notes describing an encounter with an atheists’ club. Here is an excerpt:

I was invited to a university campus several years ago to speak to an atheists’ club. They asked me to present the intellectual case for the existence of God. I did, and as I went through the arguments for the existence of God, I kept things on an intellectual plane. All things were safe and comfortable until I got to the end of my lecture. At that point I said, ‘I’m giving you arguments for the existence of God, but I feel like I’m carrying coals to Newcastle because I have to tell you that I do not have to prove to you that God exists, because I think you already know it. Your problem is not that you do not know that God exists; your problem is that you despise the God whom you know exists. Your problem is not intellectual; it is moral—you hate God.’”

I know people who need to hear this, and I’ll bet you do too. I hope you’ll accept my invitation to try the St. Andrews Expositional Commentary and see for yourself. I guarantee you’ll be delighted and it will become a much-used addition to your biblical library. 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 8245.

Free Friday! Called to Teach

9780805411997coverc01aHappy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $24.95, is Called to Teach by William Yount. Click here to download.

In a previous book, Created to Learn, I described three major learning theory systems: the behavioral (doing skillfully), the cognitive (understanding clearly), and the affective (experiencing and valuing personally). In introducing the Teachers’ Triad, I wrote, “Educational problems do not fall neatly into any one system…. Effective teachers move freely from system to system, engaging learners where they are, helping them to master the subject and grow as a result.”

But I would go farther now. The best teachers are like parallel processors who operate in all three systems simultaneously, conscious in-the-now of behaviors, concepts, and values. Dynamic synergists make the best teachers.

The role of a teacher is a noble calling—a combination of explainer, listener, friend, coach, storyteller, and strategist. Anyone willing and wanting to accept this challenge will find invaluable guidance in this book.

Combining the best of Bible-based education theory with practical ministry, Called to Teach blends spiritual insight and disciplined academics into a unified and potent philosphy of teaching. Using biblical examples, learning theories, and personal experiences, it challenges both new and seasoned teachers, pastors, counselors, and professors to engage in the never-ending process of growing into more excellent teachers.

William “Rick” Yount is professor and assistant dean of the Foundations of Education division, School of Educational Ministries, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He travels every year to teach pastors and missionaries in the former Soviet Union. Yount lives with his wife in Fort Worth, Texas.

MacArthur Commentary – 3 New Volumes Released!

macarthurHere’s some wonderful news. WORDsearch has just released 3 new volumes in one of our most popular commentaries of all time: The MacArthur New Testament Commentary. For the next 14 days, each volume in this series is on sale for only $19.95, including the 3 new volumes on Luke. If you’ve been collecting each MacArthur volume as it is released, you can take all 3 for just $39.95. If you’ve wanted to add the entire set to your digital library, it’s now on sale for only $299.95. Click here to select the volumes you want for your library. Or, if you prefer ordering by phone, call us at 1-800-888-9898 (mention special offer 8174). Interest-free, easy payments are available.

Here’s Why You’ll Love MacArthur’s Commentaries:

John MacArthur gets more out of one verse than many commentaries get out of an entire chapter. See for yourself by viewing this short video demonstration. Dr. MacArthur excels at what I call, “Connecting the Scriptural Dots.” He carefully takes each passage of Scripture, brings out truths and doctrine, and then explains how this relates to the whole of the Bible. MacArthur uses Scripture to shed light on other Scripture.

For example, I found a marvelous section on the Beatitudes in Luke 6. Jesus began by saying, “Blessed are you who are poor.” MacArthur quickly reminds us the Bible commends helping those in need and he cites: Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Proverbs, Isaiah and Galatians. Of course, each of these passages can be instantly read by mousing-over the links in WORDsearch.

Next, MacArthur takes us deeper by directing our attention to the Beatitudes found in Matthew 5. He stresses that Jesus isn’t just speaking of those who are poor in finances, but poor in spirit. MacArthur gives us much to consider regarding spiritual deficiency, what this meant to His audience at the time and what it means to us today. MacArthur delivers so much inspiring material on each verse, it’s hard to read a page without thinking, hey, there’s a 4-point sermon or Bible study lesson. It’s no surprise that Dr. MacArthur is so highly regarded as a Bible scholar, preacher and educator of the Word.

30 NT Volumes for Your WORDsearch Library

Most preachers or teachers who have consulted a volume of MacArthur’s New Testament Commentary realize the value and become collectors of the entire set. No wonder over 1 million of these commentary volumes have been sold. MacArthur’s precise, thorough and unique analysis of the text is incredibly helpful for those who preach, teach or love to study God’s Word.

I hope you’ll take advantage of this great sale price and add the MacArthur New Testament Commentary volumes to your WORDsearch library. As always, I guarantee you’ll be delighted or your money back. Just click here. 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 8174).
