Saturday Roundup


Happy MLK weekend everyone! Hopefully by now you are back in the swing of things after the holidays and can take some time to reflect on the work of Martin Luther King, Jr. In case you missed anything, here is everything that went on at WORDsearch this week.

Award-winning, 12-volume commentary from a Reformed perspective that covers the entire New Testament, taking over 50 years to complete it.

Perhaps there’s no such thing as “the perfect sermon,” but there are times when you preach or teach and you just know your message has connected in a personal way. It’s something special when the Holy Spirit gives you timely insight and uses your voice to stir the hearts of people towards God. We believe that Baker Publishing had this in mind when they put together this wonderful 12-volume resource, the Baker New Testament Commentary. Each individual volume presents a verse-by-verse analysis, expert scholarship, sound exegesis, a fresh translation, doctrinal considerations, practical notes, and useful applications. The writers have kept in mind the needs of the scholar, the busy pastor, and serious students of the Scriptures. For a very limited time we are able to offer this set on sale – so don’t miss out on your chance to add this to your library.

“No greater words were ever penned than “The Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We observed His glory, the glory as the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14). Yes, the eternal Christ who is God Himself became a flesh-and-blood man. He pitched His tent of flesh and dwelt for a little while among men. He was God as though He were not man. Yet He became man in every sense of the word, apart from sin, that He might both identify Himself with man and fully reveal the Father to men. When God revealed His law, He did so through Moses, but when He revealed His grace and truth He did so through Jesus Christ.” – The Illustrated Life of Jesus

We had two new excellent book releases this week, The Illustrated Life of Jesus and the Illustrated Life of Paul. Each of these works takes you on a fascinating journey that details every event in the lives of Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul, respectively. Hundreds of photographs, illustrations, and reconstructions connect you with the life, times, culture, and lifestyles of the first century in which Jesus and Paul lived. Both of these books, plus five additional illustrated reference works are on sale until February 3. Read more and check out this sale.
