Solid Biblical Exegesis

How to Understand & Apply the Bible includes two comprehensive volumes filled with solid exegesis of the Scriptures. Accessible for pastors, Bible teachers, and anyone who loves to study the Word, these volumes will empower you to understand and apply the Old and New Testaments.

Both volumes follow an extensively field-tested twelve-step process to deepen understanding and shape theology (biblical, systematic, and practical). You’ll learn how to track the biblical author’s thought-flow, grasp the text’s message, and apply the ancient Word in this modern world, all in light of Christ’s redeeming work.

5 Essential Tips to Finding Treasures in Scripture

guest_post_med

In honor of our new release of three new Treasures from the Scriptures volumes this is a re-post of a previously posted guest blog from author Rod Mattoon. 

Let me say up front that I use Wordsearch almost every single day because I study every day. There are two main features that help me immensely.

1. The Topics button

A. Subject Research
This tool enables me to do in-depth studies on any particular subject I want to research. For example, if I am preaching through the book of Job and want to find material on “trials.” By finding verses and information about “trials,” I can then form an outline on this particular subject or incorporate the principles into my message.

Find Relevant Topical Info

Welcome to our Tips & Tricks series! This series is meant to help you get the most out of using Wordsearch. Hopefully you’ll find out something new with each tip and be on your way to deeper Bible study. This week’s tip is about the topical carousel.

In a previous tip we talked about the Bible and commentary carousels and how they could be used to give you easy access to your Bible translations and commentary books.

The Wordsearch program also offers one more carousel, which gives you easier access to your topical books.

The topical carousel is great for making you more efficient in Wordsearch as it peruses each of the books in your carousel and only shows you the books that have relevant information on the topic you are studying.

The Eerdmans Encyclopedia of Early Christian Art and Archaeology

The Eerdmans Encyclopedia of Early Christian Art and Archaeology (EEECAA) is the first comprehensive reference work of its kind.

More than 400 distinguished scholars, including archaeologists, art historians, historians, epigraphers, and theologians, have written the 1,455 entries in this monumental encyclopedia.

From Aachen to Zurzach, Paul Corby Finney’s masterwork draws on archaeological and epigraphic evidence to offer readers a basic orientation to early Christian architecture, sculpture, painting, mosaic, and portable artifacts created roughly between AD 200 and 600 in Africa, Asia, and Europe.

Clear, Concise, and Accessible

You don’t need to have specialized training in archaeology and the history of art to enjoy this volume. Early Christian art has had a long-lasting influence on the history of art, and the “visual world that early Christians invented was bristling with spiritual intents and purposes.” (From the Preface.)
