“Pastors will benefit greatly from this book in their sermon preparation, as well as students of the Bible. Sunday-school teachers will find invaluable help, and every christian who wants to go deeper into the marvelous grace of god will be enriched with these commentaries.” – Dr. Adrian Rogers, Former Southern Baptist Convention President

The Roy Gingrich Bible Commentaries are a set of 100 comprehensive commentaries. Written in outline form, the volumes are perfect for sermons, lessons, or Bible study groups.

Over a Million Sold

A labor of love by the late Roy Gingrich, a pastor, professor, and author, this commentary involved many, many hundreds of hours of study, research, meditation, and prayer over a period of around 15 years. For the last few decades, the Roy Gingrich Bible Commentaries have been in constant circulation, with over a million sold to date.

Guest Post – The Importance of Daily Devotionals

I read somewhere that “the gospel brings a person to God and daily devotionals keep them near to God.” We may ask ourselves this question, “Why is it important to have daily devotions?”

I have been a runner off and on ever since I was a junior in high school. Once I begin running it did not take me long to realize that long distance running was something I truly enjoyed. I graduated high school in 1979 and ran my first 5K race in July of that same year, though I had not been running for months. I did really well in that race and a guy took me under his wing and helped me to develop the needed skills to become a fairly good racer.

In 1989 I ran my first marathon and my goal was to break 3 hours and 30 minutes, I actually ran the race in 3 hours and 23 minutes. The only issue that I had with racing rather than running was that I would lose the joy that I had for just pure running because I had to do regimented training to excel at racing. I would go fanatical in my training when I was dedicated to running and before long, I would just quit running. Why? I would get burnt out!

It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. – Lam 3:22-23 KJV

The same can be said with those of us that continually read the Bible for “sermons, for preaching, and for teaching.”  If we are not careful we will burn ourselves out due to chasing after sermons and our lives will grow cold, crusty, and calloused to God, the church, our family, and our relationship with Christ.
