Written & Designed for Those Who Mentor Others in the Christian Faith

The Mentor Commentary Bundle combines two companion sets designed and written for those who mentor others in the Christian faith. This bundle of 21 volumes is ideal for anyone who preaches, teaches, or ministers to others.

The 17-Volume Mentor Commentary – It’s Exegetical

The Mentor Commentary is an exegetical commentary written by authors who hold a high view of Scripture. It takes a verse-by-verse approach to examining and explaining each text that comes from the ancient languages. Greek and Hebrew words are discussed, but no language training is necessary. What you get is refreshing new insight into each verse. In Wordsearch, these volumes contain tons of Scripture cross-references that are all hyperlinks. By simply hovering your cursor over each link, you can quickly read each reference in its entirety.

Free Friday! The Minirth Guide for Christian Counselors

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

What is Christian counseling? Christian counseling could be defined as “the ministry of one individual seeking to help another person recognize, understand, and solve his or her own problems in accordance with the Word of God.” The emphasis in the above definition is on only two individuals—the patient and the therapist. This emphasis is valid, yet Christian counseling has even further implications. The entire body of Christ in a local area has a responsibility to minister to the emotional needs of one of its members, and the counselor will do well to take advantage in therapy of the great rehabilitative resources available in the local church.

Christian counseling involves the integration of faith and medicine, and Dr. Frank Minirth, qualified in the fields of medicine, theology and counseling, has represented the epitome of the disciple.

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:

Daily Readings to Refresh Your Soul


Reading the Bible as a pastor or preacher for personal edification can be tough. Dissecting the text and seeing the technical aspects constantly can keep you from letting the Bible speak to you. But an important part of leading or teaching is your own faith. This can help you be a better minister to the ones who depend on you each week.

Written by One of the Century’s Great “Pastor-Preachers”

A new release for Wordsearch, the Walk in the Word Series will refresh your soul while also helping you grow in biblical knowledge. Written by George Morrison, who is known as one of the century’s great “pastor-preachers,” these two volumes contain daily readings that seek to meet life’s needs with a Word from God.

This two volume set includes:

  • Meditations on the Gospels, containing daily readings focused on the life and teachings of Jesus as recorded in the gospels
  • More Meditations on the New Testament and Psalms, containing readings on the lives of the apostles and the spread of Christianity as recorded in Acts through Revelation

Morrison’s text is easy to read and has fresh insights that easily turn into a great sermon.

Read More – And What of Joseph’s Faith?

“But like his father Jacob, Joseph believed the word of promise—that God was building a great people who would one day return to the land of promise.”

In Genesis 48, Jacob blesses his grandsons Ephraim and Manasseh. It might seem like just a nice moment between family, but the Preaching the Word Commentary on Genesis brings this passage to life.

Following along with the verses, the commentary explains the background information and meaning that might not immediately come to mind. For example, the author Hughes explains that by bringing his sons to be blessed by Jacob, Joseph was identifying himself with God’s people, thereby losing their Egyptian prominence. Why does that matter? Joseph was trusting God’s promise, even if it seemed crazy to outsiders. Understanding this can help bring to light the significance of Jacob’s blessing to Joseph.

Read the rest of the commentary on Genesis 48 below. The Preaching the Word Series is an award-winning commentary specifically written to serve those who preach.

We hope you’ll be blessed and inspired by the content in this commentary, and if you love this sample, the entire series is on sale for your Wordsearch library (much better than a PDF!) for only $149.95 until August 30. Individual volumes are on sale for only $7.95 each.
