donald cantrellDonald Cantrell has been a preacher of the gospel since 1980.

The Baker New Testament Commentary

Perhaps there’s no such thing as “the perfect sermon,” but there are times when you preach or teach and you just know your message has connected in a personal way. It’s something special when the Holy Spirit gives you timely insight and uses your voice to stir the hearts of people towards God. Baker has kept this in mind while putting together the Baker New Testament Commentary.

The New International Dictionary of Old Testament Greek & Exegesis

“Making the Scriptures plain is the aim of every biblical interpreter, but the Old Testament baffles many. The NIDOTTE is a major key to sound understanding of the Old Testament, its ideas that continue into the New, and its relevance for life today. Extensive cross-references and indexing direct the inquire to every aspect of the word or theme, and the entries have up-to-date bibliographies for further study. Sample articles carefully draw meaning from the text, not read modern ideas into it, while interacting with influential and current theories. Introductory essays helpfully survey basic methods of approach to the Old Testament as a whole, guiding the user through them. When dictionaries and encyclopedias are multiplying, NIDOTTE looks set to become the standard work in this field for all who respect the Bible.” – A.R. Millard, MA, MPhil, FSA, Rankin Professor of Hebrew and Ancient Semitic Languages, The University of Liverpool

The New International Dictionary of Old Testament Greek & Exegesis is a highly-praised, massive work that provides extensive research and explanation of each word in the Old Testament. Intended for serious exegetical study of the Old Testament by academics, pastors, and students of God’s Word, the exhaustive research put into each of the five volumes makes this immersive work key to a sound understanding of the Bible.
