A Commentary Designed to Serve the Church

Accessible and rich, the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible guides you to the theological heart of the text.

The authors encourage readers to explore how the vital roots of the ancient Christian tradition inform and shape faithfulness today. By doing so, the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible demonstrates that there is significant value in a theological interpretation of the Bible.

A Theological Approach

Instead of taking a technical or critical approach, the authors use a method of interpretation that focuses on the theological meaning of each passage. These 22 volumes aim to bridge the gap between theology and exegesis, believing that the two belong hand-in-hand in Bible study and preaching. Guided by the Nicene Creed, the authors lead you toward a reading of Scripture anchored in doctrine.

A Resource for Sermons, Lessons, and Bible Study

The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible will complement the other resources in your library as you study and prepare lessons. The commentators exegete the text in a unique way that is relevant and applicable for the twenty-first century church.
