“The Bible Is To Be Lived.”

The Randall House Bible Commentary Series is a must have for pastors and students of the Bible. The authors share an unclouded commitment to the inerrant Word of God, and each of the eleven volumes includes verse-by-verse commentary, summaries of passages, and application notes for preaching and teaching.

An Overall Aim to be Practical

While The Randall House Bible Commentary Series is not intended to be highly technical, the volumes also aren’t purely devotional. They are understandable while seriously expounding the text. When the writers comment on the Greek text, they do so in a way that anyone without formal training can follow, with technical comments put in parenthesis. The overall aim of this series is to be practical, as general editor Robert Picirilli says in the introduction, “Above all; the Bible is to be lived.”

Deeply Spiritual, Insightful, Edifying, and Biblical

The Church’s Bible is designed to present the Scriptures as understood and interpreted during the first millennium of Christian history.

Early Christian thinkers loved the Bible’s teachings and were filled with awe before its mysteries. They believed that “Scripture interprets Scripture,” and the library of commentaries they wrote are an untapped resource for understanding the Bible as a book about Christ.

Scholarly, Yet Accessible

Drawing extensively on these ancient commentaries that were written during the first 800 years of Church history, the five volumes in this series include the comments, as well as sermons and sermon series, that were written during that time. Studying these volumes will bring you into the spiritual and theological world of the early Church and its understanding of the Bible. You’ll find that the knowledge found in The Church’s Bible is helpful for preaching and teaching.
