Dr. Adrian Rogers, Former Southern Baptist Convention President

Understanding the Bible can be challenging, and sometimes you don’t have the time to read a large, time-consuming commentary. The Roy Gingrich Bible Commentaries are a set of 100 comprehensive commentaries. Written in outline form, the volumes are perfect for sermons, lessons, or Bible study groups.

Over a Million Sold

A labor of love by the late Roy Gingrich, a pastor, professor, and author, this commentary involved many, many hundreds of hours of study, research, meditation, and prayer over a period of around 15 years. For the last few decades, the Roy Gingrich Bible Commentarieshave been in constant circulation, with over a million sold to date. While first written for use in the Gingrich’s own church and college classroom, today they have become a Christian classic.

Free Friday! The Mind of Christ

The mind has always been more important to God than our outward actions. In the Old Testament, the emphasis was on the heart. At times, the Bible uses the word heart where we would use the word mind, as in the injunction, “Apply your heart to discipline” (Prov. 23:12). In the New Testament, Jesus used the word heart in the same sense: “And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, ‘Why are you thinking evil in your hearts?'” (Matt. 9:4). Most of us, most of the time, are satisfied if we satisfy the expectations of society and the requirements of God by our outer, visible actions. God looks on the inner; He said, as early as Samuel’s day, that “man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (1 Sam. 16:7). In the more restricted emphasis of the New Testament, we can say “the Lord looks at the mind.”

Saved souls and transformed lives. Acts not only provides insight into the growth of the apostolic church but can also encourage and challenge your heart today.

Free Friday! The Mentoring Manifesto

Free Book Friday for Bible SoftwareAs mature Christian men, we’ve learned that loving Jesus and following Him is the secret to life. If we’ve truly experienced walking with Him, we want to share that knowledge and experience with others. Mentoring is simply that sharing what we’ve learned about living life with guys who are a few steps behind us on the path. Just look at how Jesus made His disciples. He picked them, walked through life with them, teaching them what He knew along the way. He challenged them, prayed for them, loved them individually and collectively, and then He “graduated” them and sent them out to “pay it forward” to others. He gave them assignments and then debriefed them when they returned. Sometimes He took over situations and finished them when His disciples couldn’t. Jesus “rubbed off” on his guys. Sounds like a mentor to me.

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $3.95, is The Mentoring Manifesto by Regi Campbell.

Fresh Exposition of Scripture Written for Pastors & Teachers

The Reformed Expository Commentary series (REC) is a fresh exposition of Scripture written for pastors, teachers, Bible study leaders, and those who love God’s Word. In what will quickly become a go-to resource in Wordsearch, the REC not only teaches the text but also illustrates and applies it.

“Would we put this into a sermon?”

The content in each volume has been taught and preached to real people in the church by the authors—some of the best Bible pastor-scholars today. Aware that all preachers or Bible teachers only have so much time to study and prepare, the REC aims to be not only excellent and accurate but also convenient and useful. When deciding whether to put content into the commentary, the authors would ask, “Would we put this into a sermon?” This means that, when the content does get technical, the authors walk you through how they would preach that specific instance in as realistic a way as possible.
