Alliterated Commentary Written with the Preacher in Mind

The Expository Pulpit Series provides 26 volumes of chapter-by-chapter alliterated commentary that will help your preaching and teaching become more effective and memorable. The volumes in this series are written with the preacher in mind.

The author of this series, Dr. Glen Spencer, has been an expository preacher for over 30 years and currently serves as pastor of Vernon Baptist Church in Pennsylvania. Dr. Spencer is a gifted preacher and author. He clearly outlines Scripture with beautifully alliterated points and subpoints. He then fills in the details with insightful commentary, illustrations, and applications.

Most of us who preach or teach the Bible appreciate great alliteration. But, creating alliteration is hard, time-consuming work. If you preach or teach, you will find Spencer’s work gives you a tremendous head start in building sermons and lessons.

For example, in the volume on Hebrews, Spencer devotes nine chapters on Hebrews 11, the “Faith Chapter.” Each of these chapters could provide material for single sermons or a series of series. These chapters are titled:

  • The Way of Faith (v. 1-3, 6)
  • The Worship of Faith (v. 4)
  • The Walk of Faith (v. 5)
  • The Work of Faith (v. 7)
  • The Willingness of Faith (v. 8-10, 17-19)
  • The Wonder of Faith (v. 11-12)
  • The Waiting of Faith (v. 13-16)
  • The Withstanding of Faith (v. 23-29)
  • The Warfare of Faith (v. 30-40)

The chapter titled The Waiting of Faith covers verses 13-16. It’s the passage that begins with “These all died in faith without having received the promises…” Dr. Spencer outlines this section with the following points, each with detailed commentary:

  • A Patient Faith
  • A Perceptive Faith
  • A Persuaded Faith
  • A Professing Faith
  • A Persistent Faith
  • A Passionate Faith
  • A Parting Faith

These commentaries contain crisp outlines, thoughtful exposition, and beautiful alliteration that will stay in the mind and touch the heart.
