Read More – The New International Commentary

readmorecircle1

The New International Commentary combines readability with expert scholarship and is highly regarded by theologians, preachers, and Bible students. The volumes in this commentary bridge the gap between today’s world and that of Bible times.

Each commentary opens with an introduction to the biblical book and examines its background, authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology.

Here is how the intro for the Mark volume looks in Wordsearch. Each section of the intro is separated out into the eight parts included in this specific volume so you can easily know which section you would like to study.

Wordsearch 12 Libraries Designed for Those in Ministry

12 Lexicons Up to 86% Off for a Limited Time

Lexicons can help you understand the original meaning of the words used by the biblical authors. A biblical lexicon translates words from the original language into English while providing the context necessary to better understand what the writers were trying to convey.

Word Study in Wordsearch 12

Doing a word study with lexicons is made vastly easier with Wordsearch 12. With the new addition of the Lexicon Explorer, all you have to do is double-click on any original language word and it will provide all the information from your chosen lexicons.

This means you can click on words from your Bibles, commentaries, interlinear Bibles, concordances, word study books—any book in your Wordsearch library that has an original language word—and see different definitions and meanings all in one place.

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.

On sale now until June 12. Click here for more details or to add to your library. This sale ends June 12.

Wordsearch 12 – New Features Overview

Wordsearch 12 is our brand new, most advanced, and powerful desktop tool for creating sermons, lessons, and personal Bible study. By upgrading to Wordsearch 12, you’ll experience an even more streamlined process when creating powerful sermons and lessons.

The first of the new and exciting updates that can be found in Wordsearch 12 is the addition of the Lexicon Explorer. The Lexicon Explorer has been added to give you easier access to original language information in your study. To use the Lexicon Explorer, simply double-click on any original language word. The Lexicon Explorer window will open up with all the information available from the lexicons in your library in one window. You no longer have to keep switching between windows or opening up tab after tab of word study books to get a full picture of the original language.

Another addition to the program is OneDrive integration. Word processing documents can now be created inside Wordsearch and saved to your Microsoft OneDrive. Not only is this another way to back up your information by storing it in the cloud, it also allows you to view those documents on multiple computers. The best part is that with the OneDrive app available on your mobile devices, you can access those documents right from the pulpit.
