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.

God’s Great Story Brought to Light

The Bible has been studied and interpreted in many ways since it was written. Now there’s a fresh new light shining on God’s great story. The Story of God Bible Commentary illuminates how every single verse connects to God’s story for humankind.

Feed Your Soul with God’s Word

For over 140 years the Keswick Convention in the English Lake District has welcomed gifted expositors from all over the world. The convention’s archive is a treasure trove of over 6,500 sermons preached on every book of the Bible.

Applicable Daily Devotionals

The Food for the Journey Series is an invitation to mine that treasure. It takes the Bible reading series given by well-loved Keswick speakers, past and present, and reformats them into daily devotionals. Where necessary, the language has been updated, but on the whole, it is the message you would have heard had you been listening in the tent on Skiddaw Street. Each day of the devotional ends with a newly written section designed to help you apply God’s Word to your own life and situation.

Whether you are a convention regular or have never been to Keswick, this series is a unique opportunity to study the Scriptures with a Bible teacher by your side. Wherever life’s journey takes you, time in God’s Word is vital nourishment for your spiritual journey.

Swindoll’s Great Lives from God’s Word Series

Our world is desperately in need of models worth following. Authentic heroes. People of integrity, whose lives inspire us to do better, to climb higher, to stand taller. Hearing about people who have gone before us teaches us lessons about life we might otherwise not know. 

Discover Great Lives from the Bible

In the Great Lives from God’s Word Series, Charles Swindoll examines some of these authentic heroes, revealing the strengths and weaknesses that make God’s men and women both great…and human.

Many of the most beloved biblical heroes were ordinary folks. Shepherds. Fishermen. Servants. Widows. Even harlots and petty thieves. One by one, they changed the course of history. Swindoll explains that these men and women did not become great in their own strength but were empowered by God when they surrendered their lives to God. To live such a life that God considers great is within the reach of everyone who submits to Him.
