The Good Book Guides

The best Bible studies stay with you. When a study asks good questions, it leads you to focus on the Scripture in a way you might not have before. Good questions help you retain new insights that you can apply to your life. The Good Book Guides, a 49-volume set of Bible studies, has those kind of questions.

The Good Book Guides – Faithful. Applied. Prayerful.

Each volume covers a book from the Old or New Testament, or a range of topics, from “Making Work Work” to “The Five Solas.” The strong focus of these guides is prayerful application. The authors, people like Timothy Keller, Mark Dever, Thabiti Anyabwile, and many others, want to lead you to apply what you will have learned to your life. Each lesson can be used in personal study, especially when using the Wordsearch word processor to write out your thoughts about the questions.

Designed for Sermon & Lesson Preparation

The Welwyn Commentary Series is a respected series from Evangelical Press. What makes these commentaries different from others are the authors. Many of the writers are pastors and Bible teachers—people who are out there preaching and teaching on a daily basis. You’ll appreciate their clear and concise insight.

Welwyn Commentators Are “Well-Read” Commentators

Each author has aggressively researched what other scholars have written on the passage you’re studying. You may notice that Welwyn authors tend to write from the reformed perspective. Even so, Welwyn reviews different schools of thought and guides you to the most reasonable explanation, always based on the weight of biblical texts. You’ll find hundreds of footnotes that appear as hyperlinks in Wordsearch, instantly providing more detailed information from cited sources.
