Make Sermon & Lesson Building Faster and Easier

The Enduring Word Bible Commentary is the result of decades of studying God’s Word. David Guzik, a pastor, Bible teacher, and author, has spent the last 20 years researching each passage in the Bible in order to create what he considers to be his life’s work. Now available in Wordsearch, the 66 volumes in this commentary are perfect for daily use by pastors, Bible teachers, and Sunday school teachers. They are also great for personal Bible study.

More than 11,000 Pages of Bible Commentary

Even though the Enduring Word Bible Commentary is over 11,000 pages of commentary in print, the material is presented in an expanded outline format, allowing you to quickly find what you need. The 66 volumes cover the entire Bible, and each book is organized by both chapter and verse. To make it even more organized, each Bible chapter is outlined by biblical topic, making it easy to navigate.

Guest Tip – Adrian Rogers & Seminary

Please note: The views & opinions expressed in any guest post featured on our site are those of the guest author and do not necessarily reflect the opinions & views of LifeWay Christian Resources.

One of my favorite Wordsearch resources (besides John G. Butler books!) is the Adrian Rogers Legacy Collection. This goldmine of sermons and illustrations from over the years of Dr. Adrian Rogers’ ministry is a must have for any pastor wishing to draw from one of the finest collections of sermons in digital format today.

However, the Adrian Rogers Legacy Collection is useful in other areas than just sermon preparation for pastors. As a seminary student, I frequently need to write seminary papers, exegetical papers, or engage in discussion groups where I am asked to explain or exegete a passage of Scripture.

While I certainly turn to all the “usual” academic resources when writing my school papers and discussions (such as academic-level dictionaries, exegetical commentaries, theological journals, etc.), I have found that also turning to the Adrian Rogers Legacy Collection gives me a wealth of exposition on a passage of Scripture, as well as some excellent quotes or illustrations to include in my papers and discussions to give them the extra “touch.” I treat the Adrian Rogers Legacy Collection as a giant “commentary” on the Bible that I search against passages of Scripture to see what Dr. Rogers’ insights contain on that passage. Here is how I do it:

A Commentary Designed for Pastors

Teach the Text is the kind of commentary I have wanted for a long time. It deals with the kinds of questions that busy pastors have to ask and answer in order to preach the Scriptures every week. I commend it to those of you who are in that kind of ministry.“— Haddon Robinson, Harold John Ockenga Professor of Preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

After carefully researching the needs of pastors who teach the Bible on a weekly basis, the creators of the Teach the Text Commentary Series realized the need for a commentary that utilizes the best of biblical scholarship but also presents the material in a clear, concise, attractive, and user-friendly format.

Easy Access to the Information You Need to Preach or Teach

The Teach the Text Commentary Series meets that need by providing pastors and teachers with easy access to the information needed to preach or teach effectively. The biblical text is broken out into “preaching units” that include three different sections: Understanding the Text, Teaching the Text, and Illustrating the Text. In Wordsearch, you can easily navigate to each of these sections from the Table of Contents.
