  • John 11-21

    $49.95

    Teaching and researching the Gospel of John for thirty years has led author Mary L. Coloe to an awareness of the importance of the wisdom literature to make sense of Johannine theology, language, and symbolism: in the prologue, with Nicodemus, in the Bread of Life discourse, with Mary and Lazarus, and in the culminating Hour. She also shows how the late Second Temple theology expressed in the books of Sirach and Wisdom, considered deuterocanonical and omitted from some Bible editions, are essential intertexts. Only the book of Wisdom speaks of the reign of God (Wis 10:10), eternity life (Wis 5:15), and the ambrosia maintaining angelic life (Wis 19:21)-all concepts found in John’s Gospel.
    While the Gospel explicitly states the Logos was enfleshed in Jesus, this is also true of Sophia. Coloe makes the case that Jesus’s words and deeds embody Sophia throughoutthe narrative. At the beginning of each chapter Coloe provides text from the later wisdom books that resonate with the Gospel passage, drawing Sophia out of the shadows.

  • Letter To The Romans

    $26.99

    In the wake of two magisterial commentaries on first the Gospel of Matthew and then the Gospel of John, noted theologian and exegete Frederick Dale Bruner turns his scholarly attentions to Paul’s letter to the Romans. In this concise commentary, he relays his findings on what he calls the Fifth Gospel and its central claim that through the Father’s love, Jesus’s passion, and the Spirit’s application of this passionate love, human beings can have a perfectly right relationship with God-by simple faith in His Christ.

    As he did in his commentaries on Matthew and John, Bruner engages historical interpreters of Romans from Origen to Cranfield-including Augustine, Chrysostom, Aquinas, Luther, and Calvin-while offering his own lucid translation of the text and relevant pastoral applications. Bruner also engages with other contemporary interpreters who have spent much of their scholarly lives mining the gold down deep in Romans, as he humbly admits that his conversation with Paul’s texts is almost as often a conversation with these fellow miners, who have given their lives to understanding exactly what Paul said and meant in his deep sentences. The result is a holistic understanding of the book of Romans informed not only by one scholar’s lifetime of ministry, teaching, and learning, but also by the full depth and breadth of church tradition.

  • 12 Prophets Volume 2

    $49.95

    There is generally no common material that binds together the works of the individual prophets that comprise the Twelve, but through Sweeney’s commentary they stand together as a single, clearly defined book among the other prophetic books of the Bible.

    The Book of the Twelve Prophets is a multifaceted literary composition that functions simultaneously in all Jewish and Christian versions of the Bible as a single prophetic book and as a collection of twelve individual prophetic books. Each of the twelve individual books – Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi – begins with its own narrative introduction that identifies the prophet and provides details concerning the historical setting and literary characteristics. In this manner each book is clearly distinguished from the others within the overall framework of the Twelve.

    By employing a combination of literary methodologies, such as reader response criticism, canonical criticism, and structural form criticism, Sweeney establishes the literary structure of the Book of the Twelve as a whole, and of each book with their respective ideological or theological perspectives. An introductory chapter orients readers to questions posed by reading the Book of the Twelve as a coherent piece of literature and to a literary overview of the Twelve. Sweeney then treats each of the twelve individual prophetic books in the order of the Masoretic canon, providing a discussion of each one’s structure, theme, and outlook. This is followed by a detailed literary discussion of the textual units that comprise the book.

  • Ezra And Nehemiah

    $29.95

    Ezra-Nehemiah has been neglected in biblical studies, but it is important as one of the few windows into the Persian period of Israel’s history, the setting for so much of the final shape of the Hebrew Bible. To know this period is to know what influenced these redactors. In Ezra and Nehemiah Gordon Davies provides that knowledge using rhetorical criticism, a methodology that reveals the full range and progress of the book’s ideas without hiding its rough seams and untidy edges.

    The purpose of rhetorical criticism is to explain not the source but the power of the text as a unitary message. This approach does not look at plot development, characterization, or other elements whose roughness makes Ezra-Nehemiah frustrating to read. Instead, it examines the three parts of the relationship – the strategies, the situations, and the ffects – between the speaker and the audience. Rhetorical criticism’s scrutiny of the audience in context favors the search for the ideas and structures that are indigenous to the culture of the text.

    Rhetorical criticism is interested in figures of speech as means of persuasion. Therefore, to apply it to Ezra-Nehemiah, Davies concentrates on the public discourse – the orations, letters, and prayers – throughout its text. In each chapter he follows a procedure that: (1) where it is unclear, identifies the rhetorical unit in which the discourse is set; (2) identifies the audiences of the discourse and the rhetorical situation; (3) studies the arrangement of the material; (4) studies the effect on the various audiences; (5) reviews the passage as a whole and judges its success. In the conclusion, Davies explains that Ezra-Nehemiah makes theological sense on its own terms, by forming a single work in which a range of ideas is argued.

    Biblical scholars as well as those interested in literary criticism, communication studies, rhetorical studies, ecclesiology, and homiletics will find Ezra and Nehemiah enlightening.

  • Books Of Nahum Habakkuk And Zephaniah

    $30.00

    The close-knit bond between prophecy and history, according to O. Palmer Robertson, becomes particularly clear through the study of Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah. As the historical context of their messages is explored, it becomes ever more apparent that biblical history–in addition to providing the context for prophecy–actually embodies and functions as prophecy. The events that occurred to Judah and its neighbors spoke in anticipation of world-shaking circumstances that were yet to come.

    In this commentary Robertson combines the insights of biblical theology with a keen awareness of the age in which we live. After first dealing with the relevant background issues of Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah–redemptive-historical setting, theological perspective, date and authorship, and so on–Robertson applies the care and precision of an exegete and the concern of a pastor to his verse-by-verse exposition of each book. The result is a relevant confrontation with the ancient call to repentance and faith–a confrontation greatly needed in today’s world.

  • Isaiah : An Introduction And Commentary

    $30.00

    No other prophetic book rivals Isaiah’s clear message, powerful imagery, and confident hope in God’s future deliverance.

    The prophet’s vision of God’s glory and holiness in chapter 6 permeates the whole book, and he never tires of correcting misplaced faith in power or false gods. In this thorough and accessible Tyndale commentary, Paul Wegner explores the background, structure, and themes of Isaiah. While many scholars divide the book with a gap of about 150 years between chapters 39 and 40, Wegner highlights the unified message of the book, including its three introductions (Is 1:1; 2:1; 13:1) paired with its three refrains (Is 48:22; 57:21; 66:24). Each part illuminates God’s glorious plan for his people. The Tyndale Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. In the new Old Testament volumes, the commentary on each section of the text is structured under three headings: Context, Comment, and Meaning. The goal is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

  • Luthers Works Theological And Polemical

    $59.99

    Martin Luther’s theological writings, perhaps without exception, arise from controversy or address it. For him there could be no building up of right teaching about God, humanity, the world, angels and devils without at the same time removing false teaching about all these things. Nowhere is this more clear than in the selection of short works included here. Spanning nearly his entire career as a reformer, this volume presents a variety of Luther’s theological and polemical writings from 1522 to his last days in 1546.

  • John 13-21

    $60.00

    After he had washed the disciples’ feet, Jesus said, Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.

    The second half of the Gospel of John, sometimes called the most theological of the Gospels, includes John’s account of Jesus’ final night with his disciples, his betrayal and arrest, his crucifixion, his resurrection, and his appearances to his disciples. When the Reformers of the sixteenth century turned to the fourth Gospel, they found a multitude of theological treasures: a clear affirmation of the full divinity of Christ; insights into the relationships among the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; and guidance for the church in their time. For example, John Calvin claimed, This Gospel is a key to open the door for understanding the rest; for whoever shall understand the power of Christ, as it is here strikingly portrayed, will afterwards read with advantage what the others relate about the Redeemer who was manifested. In this volume of the Reformation Commentary on Scripture, church historian Christopher Boyd Brown guides readers through a diversity of early modern commentary on chapters 13-21 of the Gospel of John. Readers will hear from familiar voices and discover lesser-known figures from a range of theological traditions, including Lutherans, Reformed, Radicals, Anglicans, and Roman Catholics. Drawing upon a variety of resources–including commentaries, sermons, treatises, and confessions–much of which appears here for the first time in English, this volume provides resources for contemporary preachers, enables scholars to better understand the depth and breadth of Reformation commentary, and seeks to encourage all those who desire to love as Jesus loves.

  • Message Of Revelation (Revised)

    $25.00

    What is the book of Revelation?

    Does it describe in veiled language events of its writer’s own day, or is it largely a prophecy of events still to come? What should readers today do with strange scenes such as creatures covered with eyes, seven bowls of wrath, and a seven-headed dragon? Michael Wilcock lifts the curtain on Revelation as a drama in eight scenes, highlighting the role of the imagination in grasping this fascinating and enigmatic book. Guiding readers passage by passage, Wilcock explores Revelation’s rich images and themes. We discover that deep reflection on this book stretches the mind and heart, calling us to encounter the love of God and the truths of the gospel in fresh and vibrant ways. This revised edition of a classic Bible Speaks Today volume features a new interior design, updated Scripture quotations, and light updates throughout.

  • Message Of Johns Letters (Revised)

    $20.00

    Immorality inundating the Christian community and gradually eroding the foundations of Christian living.

    The truth of God incarnate, the atonement, and the bodily resurrection of Christ under attack–even from within the church. These were the problems that faced the Christians of John’s day. In a society that scorned the gospel and sneered at godly living, John encouraged Christians with a message forged from two words: truth and love. The concerns of John’s original readers are still the concerns of the church now. In this accessible retelling of John’s message, David Jackman provides historical background, identifies key themes, and offers applications for today. He describes John’s first letter as an upwardly spiraling staircase that circles and broadens out around twin themes of truth and love, mind and heart, Word and Spirit. It is a message both timeless and timely. This revised edition of a classic Bible Speaks Today volume includes updated language and Scripture quotations and a new interior design. A study guide for individuals or groups is included to help readers engage more deeply with the text.

In this Bible Speaks Today volume, Edmund Clowney expounds Peter’s rich pastoral letter, exploring historical background, key themes, and applications for today. He highlights topics such as the life and work of Jesus, the reality of suffering, and the fulfillment of Old Testament promises. The Message of 1 Peter shows readers in every era what the story of Jesus’ life means for us as we take up our cross and follow him.

  • Message Of James (Revised)

    $20.00

    The apostle James addressed his readers directly and pointedly, using vivid images from ordinary life and attention-gripping statements.

    His letter reveals how a genuine faith is a tested faith, and how encountering difficulties is an essential part of the growth to Christian maturity. In this Bible Speaks Today volume, J. A. Motyer’s rich exposition brings James’s letter to life for today’s readers. Motyer is himself gripped by James’s energy and concern for practical Christianity. He draws out James’s memorable themes: the link between enduring trials and maturity; the good gifts of God; faith, works, and Christian concern in a world of human need; the implications of careless and evil words; the church and healing; confession of sin; the need for active purity in life; and more. This revised edition of a classic BST volume includes a new interior design, lightly updated language, and updated Scripture quotations throughout.

  • Letter Of James Second Edition

    $45.00

    Few New Testament books have been as controversial and misunderstood as the letter of James. Its place in the canon was contested by some early Christians, and the reformer Martin Luther called it an epistle of straw. The sometimes negative view of the letter among modern theologians, however, is not shared by ordinary believers. Well known and often quoted, James is concise, intensely practical, and filled with memorable metaphors and illustrations. As such, it has become one of the most popular New Testament books in the church.

    This highly original commentary on James by respected New Testament scholar Douglas Moo combines penetrating scholarship with the simplicity of style and pastoral tone characteristic of James itself. After discussing such background issues as authorship, genre, purpose, structure, and theology, Moo provides a verse-by-verse exposition of the text that leads readers to the heart of James’s message-wholehearted commitment to Christ. In addition to expounding the meaning of James, Moo also takes care to provide practical insights for applying that meaning in the church today.

    At once scholarly and accessible, this volume has become a standard commentary on James. The second edition is based upon the newest version of the NIV and incorporates the latest scholarship. It has been expanded, updated, and revised throughout.

  • Books Of Nahum Habakkuk And Zephaniah

    $56.00

    In this commentary, Thomas Renz reads Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah as three carefully crafted writings of enduring relevance that each make a vital contribution to the biblical canon.

    Discussing the historical settings, Renz takes up both long-standing issues, such as the relationship of Zephaniah to Josiah’s reforms, as well as the socioeconomic conditions of the time suggested by recent archaeological research. The place of these writings within the Book of the Twelve is given fresh consideration, including the question what one should make of the alleged redaction history of Nahum and Habakkuk.

    The author’s careful translation of the text comes with detailed textual notes, illuminating some of the most outstanding poetry of the Bible (Nahum) and one of its most difficult to translate chapters (Habakkuk 3). The thorough verse-by-verse commentary is followed by stimulating theological reflection, opening up venues for teaching and preaching from these prophetic writings.

    No matter their previous familiarity with these and other Minor Prophets, scholars, pastors, and lay readers alike will find needed guidance in working through these difficult but important books of the Bible.

  • Introduction To The Apocrypha

    $38.00

    A Yale University Press Title

    An ambitious introduction to the Apocrypha that encourages readers to reimagine what canon really means

    Challenging the way Christian and non-Christian readers think about the Apocrypha, this is an ambitious introduction to the deuterocanonical texts of the Christian Old Testaments. Lawrence Wills introduces these texts in their original Jewish environment while addressing the very different roles they had in various Christian canons. Though often relegated to a lesser role, a sort of Bible-Lite, these texts deserve renewed attention, and this book shows how they hold more interest for both ancient and contemporary communities than previously thought.

  • 1 Corinthians : A Commentary In The Wesleyan Tradition

    $27.99

    What do you say to people who have accepted the gospel but have failed to apply it well? That is the dilemma Paul is facing as he writes 1 Corinthians. From the various disputes described in this epistle over rhetorical techniques, eating Idol meat in pagan temples, behavior during the Lord’s Supper, and so on NBBC 1 Corinthians teases out that the epistle, unified by the gospel, is about how to do church. Throughout the commentary, eminent New Testament scholar Alex R. G. Deasley emphasizes that the proper application of the gospel is at stake. Along with the standard discussions about literary genre, structure, and historical context, Dr. Deasley astutely articulates the relevance of 1 Corinthians to the church today. Written by a seasoned and highly regarded professor of biblical studies, this commentary is the ideal capstone to the New Beacon Bible Commentary series.

    The New Beacon Bible Commentary is an engaging, indispensable reference tool to aid individuals in every walk of life in the study and meditation of God’s Word.

  • Obadiah Jonah And Micah

    $25.00

    Obadiah’s oracle against Edom. Jonah’s mission to the city of Nineveh. Micah’s message to Samaria and Jerusalem.

    These books are short yet surprisingly rich in theological and practical terms. In this Tyndale commentary on these minor but important prophets, Daniel Timmer considers each book’s historical setting, genre, structure, and unity. He explores their key themes with an eye to their fulfilment in the New Testament and their significance for today. The Tyndale Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. In the new Old Testament volumes, the commentary on each section of the text is structured under three headings: Context, Comment, and Meaning. The goal is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

  • Message Of Hebrews (Revised)

    $25.00

    The first-century readers of Hebrews were at a critical point.

    Many had been exposed to public ridicule, persecution, and imprisonment. Some had already abandoned their commitment to Christ, and others were in danger of compromising or giving up. The letter to the Hebrews brought a profound encouragement and appeal: they must keep their eyes on Christ and remain anchored in the truth. In this Bible Speaks Today volume, Raymond Brown guides readers passage by passage through Hebrews, exploring historical background, key themes, and applications for today. While some find Hebrews one of the most puzzling of the New Testament books–with its references to animal sacrifices and ancient Israelite customs–Brown identifies a timeless message that remains strikingly relevant in each generation. As Hebrews celebrates the uniqueness of Christ, it clarifies Christians’ priorities and our only hope for faithful endurance. This revised edition of a classic Bible Speaks Today volume includes updated language and Scripture quotations and a new interior design.

  • Message Of 2 Timothy (Revised)

    $20.00

    After teaching many times from the book of 2 Timothy, John Stott writes, I have been impressed afresh by the timeliness for today of what the apostle writes, especially for young Christian leaders.

    For our era too is one of theological and moral confusion, even of apostasy. And the apostle summons us, as he summoned Timothy, to be strong, brave and steadfast. In this revised Bible Speaks Today volume, Stott explores the perennial lessons of Paul’s final epistle. We see Paul call the young leader Timothy to courageously persevere in the truth and in his calling, not yielding to the pressures of public opinion or the surrounding culture. Highlighting key themes such as guarding, proclaiming, and suffering for the gospel, Stott also considers the historical background and applications for readers today. This revised edition of a classic Bible Speaks Today volume includes updated language and Scripture quotations and a new interior design.

  • Message Of 1 Timothy And Titus (Revised)

In this revised Bible Speaks Today volume, John Stott finds in 1 Timothy and Titus a dynamic truth that orders Christian life in the church, the family, and the world. With his trademark warmth and clarity, Stott guides readers through the text, highlighting key themes and applications for today. Stott’s pastoral voice and dedication to teaching the Word echo Paul’s as he calls each generation to guard the message entrusted to them.

    The gospel shapes the church and the church spreads the gospel.

    In his heartfelt letters to the Thessalonians, the apostle Paul calls believers again and again to these essential truths. To encourage and correct the young church in Thessalonica, Paul addresses many issues that are still of vital importance today, such as Christian community, church leadership, moral living, evangelism, and what we need to know about the end times. With scholarly rigor and pastoral care, John Stott opens up the rich truths found in 1 and 2 Thessalonians. He guides readers through each passage, exploring historical background, key themes, and applications for today.

  • Jonah : Introduction And Commentary

    $70.00

    The dominant reading of the book of Jonah-that the hapless prophet Jonah is a lesson in not trying to run away from God-oversimplifies a profoundly literary biblical text, argues Amy Erickson. Likewise, the more recent understanding of Jonah as satire is problematic in its own right, laden as it is with anti-Jewish undertones and the superimposition of a Christian worldview onto a Jewish text. How can we move away from these stale interpretations to recover the richness of meaning that belongs to this short but noteworthy book of the Bible?

    This Illuminations commentary delves into Jonah’s reception history in Christian, Jewish, and Islamic contexts while also exploring its representations in visual arts, music, literature, and pop culture. After this thorough contextualization, Erickson provides a fresh translation and exegesis, paving the way for pastors and scholars to read and utilize the book of Jonah as the provocative, richly allusive, and theologically robust text that it is.

  • Galatians

    $39.99

    Galatians is often read by Christians as being primarily concerned with the traditional doctrine of justification through faith, but it is also a text focused deeply on the political concerns of its specific historical moment. This commentary from N. T. Wright-the inaugural volume of the Commentaries for Christian Formation series-offers a theological interpretation of Galatians that puts that historical context of the book in dialogue with present questions, so that readers can understand both what Paul meant and what his writing might mean for us today.

    Each section of verse-by-verse commentary in this volume is followed by Wright’s reflections on what the text says about Christian formation today, making this an excellent resource for individual readers and those preparing to teach or preach on Galatians. The focus on formation is especially appropriate for this biblical letter, in which Paul wrote to his fellow early Christians, My children-I seem to be in labor with you all over again, until the Messiah is fully formed in you!

  • John Through Old Testament Eyes

    $29.99

    A New Testament commentary steeped in the Old Testament

    Through Old Testament Eyesis a new kind of commentary series that illuminates the Old Testament backgrounds, allusions, patterns, and references saturating the New Testament. These links were second nature to the New Testament authors and their audiences, but today’s readers often cannot see them. Bible teachers, preachers, and students committed to understanding Scripture will gain insight through these rich Old Testament connections, which clarify puzzling passages and explain others in fresh ways.

    In John Through Old Testament Eyes, Karen Jobes reveals how the Old Testament background of the Gospel of John extends far beyond quotes of Old Testament scripture or mention of Old Testament characters. Jobes discusses the history, rituals, images, metaphors, and symbols from the Old Testament that give meaning to John’s teaching about Jesus-his nature and identity, his message and mission-and about those who believe in him.

    Avoiding overly technical discussions and interpretive debates to concentrate on Old Testament influences, Though Old Testament Eyes combines rigorous, focused New Testament scholarship with deep respect for the entire biblical text.

  • Luke 10-24

    $49.95

    Because there are more women in the Gospel of Luke than in any other gospel, feminists have given it much attention. In this commentary, Shelly Matthews and Barbara Reid show that feminist analysis demands much more than counting the number of female characters. Feminist biblical interpretation examines how the female characters function in the narrative and also scrutinizes the workings of power with respect to empire, to anti-Judaism, and to other forms of othering. Matthews and Reid draw attention to the ambiguities of the text–both the liberative possibilities and the ways that Luke upholds the patriarchal status quo–and guide readers to empowering reading strategies.

  • Eerdmans Commentary On The Bible

    $70.00

    No one familiar with the Bible needs to be told that it is a truly remarkable work. But it takes help to understand this ancient collection of diverse forms of literature written by different people across many centuries. The Eerdmans Commentary on the Bible (ECB) is the finest single-volume Bible handbook available.

    Written by world-class Bible scholars, the ECB encapsulates in nontechnical language the best of modern scholarship on the sixty-six biblical books plus the Apocrypha. The only one-volume Bible commentary to cover all the texts (even including 1 Enoch) regarded by one or more Christian churches as canonical, the ECB provides reader-friendly treatments and succinct summaries of each section of the text that will be valuable to scholars, students, and general readers alike.

    The primary objective of this work is to clarify the meaning of each section of the Bible. Rather than attempting a verse-by-verse analysis (virtually impossible in a one-volume work), the ECB focuses on principal units of meaning-narrative, parable, prophetic oracle, section of argument, and so on-highlighting their interconnectedness with the rest of the biblical text. The volume also addresses and answers major issues-including the range of possible interpretations-and refers readers to the best fuller discussions. Beyond providing reliable, informative commentary, this hefty volume also includes thirteen introductory and context-setting articles that do justice to the biblical documents both as historical sources and as scriptures.

    The sixty-seven contributors to the ECB come from a wide variety of backgrounds and are acknowledged leaders in the field of biblical studies. Their contributions stand out either for their fresh interpretations of the evidence, or for their way of asking new questions of the text, or for their new angles of approach. While the translation of choice is the New Revised Standard Version, many of the contributors offer their own vivid translations of the original Hebrew or Greek.

    Cutting-edge, comprehensive, and ecumenical, the ECB is both a fitting climax to the rich body of interconfessional work undertaken in the latter part of the twentieth century and a worthy launching pad for biblical study in the twenty-first.

  • 1–3 John

    $29.00

    The letters from John written to churches at the end of the first century CE possess meaningful theological insight for Christians today-in a sense, they were written for us.

    True to this sense, Thomas Andrew Bennett keeps historical speculation to a minimum and delves into the theological depths of 1-3 John in this commentary. He begins by providing a new translation of the text from the Greek, along with verse-by-verse exegesis, and then moves into an extended reflection on a litany of relevant theological topics, including questions of trinitarianism, creation, faith, atonement, eschatology, salvation, the nature of divine and human love, and the composition of the church. In these pages, readers challenged by Johannine metaphors (walking in the light, children of God, etc.) will find clarity, and pastors will find detailed guidance for teaching and preaching.

    Bennett’s scholarship is critical but confessional, academic but accessible, and, above all, rooted in a faithful reverence that seeks not to read 1-3 John as a detached outsider to the text, but as the author’s fellow believer, so that the text’s theological concerns can be spoken to once again in a fresh and compelling way.

  • Proverbs : A Shorter Commentary

    $38.00

    Since 2004, Bruce Waltke’s magisterial two-volume NICOT commentary on the book of Proverbs has been recognized as a definitive exegesis of the Hebrew text, groundbreaking in its illuminating analysis that the authors and redactors of Proverbs had organized their material into discernible clusters and groupings. Waltke and Ivan De Silva here offer an abridged and revised version of the preeminent commentary, which is more accessible to students, pastors, and Bible readers in general. In place of a technical analysis of the Hebrew text, Waltke and De Silva interpret the translated text, while also including their own theological reflections and personal anecdotes where appropriate. A topical index is added to help expositors with a book that is difficult to preach or teach verse by verse.

    At its heart, this shorter commentary on Proverbs preserves the exegetical depth, erudition, and poetic insight of Waltke’s original and maintains the core conviction that the ancient wisdom of Proverbs holds profound, ongoing relevance for Christian faith and life today.

The first, departing from Sinai, begins a wilderness journey that is marked by fickle faithfulness and failures; the second finds itself waiting on the plains of Moab on the verge of entering a land of promise.

  • Hosea

    $25.00

    An adulterous woman repeatedly spurns the love of her youth, while her betrayed husband offers forgiveness and seeks to win her back.

    With this bold and uncomfortable imagery, Hosea tells the story of God and his people. God calls the prophet to embody this divine suffering and redeeming forgiveness in his own marriage, thereby setting the stage for his message of God’s faithful and enduring love, his righteous judgment, and his continuing offer of reconciliation and restoration. This Tyndale commentary from Robin Routledge explores the historical, cultural, literary, and theological dimensions of the book of Hosea. The Tyndale Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. In the new Old Testament volumes, the commentary on each section of the text is structured under three headings: Context, Comment, and Meaning. The goal is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.
