Christian Commentaries Online

Explanation - The following list includes not only commentaries but other Christian works by well known evangelical writers. Most of the resources below are newer works (written after 1970) which previously were available only for purchase in book form or in a Bible computer program. The resources are made freely available by archive.org but have several caveats - (1) they do not allow copy and paste, (2) they can only be checked out for one hour (but can be checked out immediately when your hour expires giving you time to read or take notes on a lengthy section) and (3) they require creating an account which allows you to check out the books free of charge. To set up an account click archive.org and then click the picture of the person in right upper corner and enter email and a password. That's all you have to do. Then you can read these more modern resources free of charge! I have read or used many of these resources but not all of them so ultimately you will need to be a Berean (Acts 17:11+) as you use them. I have also selected works that are conservative and Biblically sound. If you find one that you think does not meet those criteria please send an email at https://www.preceptaustin.org/contact. The resources are listed in alphabetical order by the author's last name and some include reviews of the particular resource. 

STUDY BIBLES - ONE VOLUME COMMENTARIES OF ENTIRE BIBLE,
BIBLE DICTIONARIES, GENERAL REFERENCE WORKS

KJV Bible Commentary Judges - Hindson, Edward E; Kroll, Woodrow Michael. This is not a study Bible per se, but a one volume commentary with over 3000 pages of comments covering the entire OT/NT. There is no restriction on length of time one can use, but there is no copy and paste function. These are excellent conservative comments that interpret Scripture from a literal perspective.  User reviews - it generally gets 4/5 stars from users. Recommended. 

The King James Study Bible Second Edition (2013) (Thomas Nelson) contributing editors (only first is listed) include Wayne A. Brindle. There is no restriction on length of time one can use, but there is no copy and paste function.

Zondervan NIV Study Bible - (2011) 2570 pages  - Use this one if available as it has more notes than edition below. One hour limit

NIV Study Bible by Barker, Kenneth L; Burdick, Donald W (1995) 2250 pages. This is the first edition. This resource has been fully revised in 2020. One hour limit 

NKJV Study Bible: New King James Version Study Bible (formerly "The Nelson Study Bible - NKJV") by Radmacher, Earl D; Allen, Ronald Barclay; House, H. Wayne (1997, 2007); 917 ratings Very helpful notes. Conservative. There is no restriction on length of time one can use, but there is no copy and paste function.

Believer's Bible Commentary - OT and NT - MacDonald, William (1995) 2480 pages. Conservative. Literal. Often has very insightful comments. John MacArthur, says "Concise yet comprehensive - the most complete single-volume commentary I have seen." Warren Wiersbe adds "For the student who is serious about seeing Christ in the Word." One hour limit.

Rosscup - This work, originally issued in 1983, is conservative and premillennial, written to help teachers, preachers and people in every walk of life with different views, explanation and application. The 2-column format runs verse by verse for the most part, usually in a helpfully knowledgeable manner, and there are several special sections such as “Prayer” in Acts and “Legalism” in Galatians. The premillennial view is evident on Acts 1:6, 3:20, Romans 11:26, Galatians 6:16, Revelation 20, etc.

HCSB Study Bible : Holman Christian Standard Bible - General Editor Jeremy Royal Howard (2010) 2360 pages. Conservative. Good notes. Include Holmans excellent maps. One hour limit

Life Application Study Bible: Old Testament and New Testament: New Living Translation. Has some very helpful notes especially with application of texts. 4,445 ratings One hour limit

ESV study Bible - Excellent resource but not always literal in eschatology and the nation of Israel 6,004 ratings

The David Jeremiah Study Bible - (2013) 2208 pages. 2,272 ratings Logos.com - "Drawing on more than 40 years of study, Dr. David Jeremiah has compiled a legacy resource that will make an eternal impact on generations to come. 8,000 study notes. Hundreds of enriching word studies"50+ Essentials of the Christian Faith" articles."

Wycliffe Bible Commentary - Charles Pfeiffer - 1560 pages (1962). 214 ratings Less detailed than the KJV Bible Commentary. Conservative. Notes are generally verse by verse but brief. 

Rosscup - Conservative and premillennial scholars here have been experts in their fields. The work contains brief introductions and attempts to give a verse-by-verse exposition, though it does skip over some verses. The treatments vary with the authors, but as a whole it is a fine one-volume commentary for pastors and students to use or give to a layman. Outstanding sections include, for example: Whitcomb on Ezra-Nehemiah-Esther; Culver on Daniel; Ladd on Acts; Harrison on Galatians; Johnson on I Corinthians; and Ryrie on the Johannine Epistles.

The Defender's Study Bible : King James Version by Morris, Henry M. Excellent notes by well known creationist. 45 ratings 

New Bible Commentary - (1994) See user reviews

Compact Bible commentary by Radmacher, Earl D; Allen, Ronald Barclay; House, H Wayne, et al - 954 pages.  424 ratings Multiple contributors to the comments which are often verse by verse. The comments are brief but meaty and can really help your study through a given book. A sleeper in my opinion. 

The Experiencing God Study Bible: the Bible for knowing and doing the will of God - Blackaby, Henry (1996) 1968 pages - CHECK THIS ONE! Each chapter begins with several questions under the title "PREPARE TO MEET GOD." Then you will interesting symbols before many of the passages. The chapter ends with a "DID YOU NOTICE?" question. This might make a "dry chapter" jump off the page! Read some of the 48 ratings

Disciple's study Bible: New international version 54 ratings Not that helpful for verse by verse study. Focuses on application of Christian doctrines. 10,000 annotations; doctrinal summaries, "Life Helps" section relate doctrine to everyday discipleship. 

The Living Insights Study Bible : New International Version - Charles Swindoll. Notes are good but somewhat sparse and not verse by verse.

The Apologetics Study Bible Understand Why You Believe by Norman Geisler

NIV archaeological study Bible (2005) 2360 pages 950 ratings (See also Archaeology and the Bible - OT and NT)

NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible. Bringing to Life the Ancient World of Scripture Keener, Craig and Walton, John. Editors (2017)

The Hebrew-Greek key study Bible : New American standard study by Strong, James, 1822-1894; Zodhiates, Spiros

The New Inductive Study Bible : updated New American Standard Bible - Introductions of each book give suggestions how to perform an inductive study on that specific book. Not strictly speaking a "study Bible" with notes but a Bible to help you study inductively. Has wide margins for making notes. This is one that works best in "paper," not digitally. 

With the Word - Devotional Commentary - Warren Wiersbe - 428 ratings

Evangelical Commentary on the Bible - Judges by Andrew Boling (20 pages); editor Walter Elwell (1989) 1239 pages. User reviews. (See also Boling's 380 page commentary on Judges the Anchor Bible Series)

Halley's Bible Handbook Henry H. Halley - (2000) 2720 pages (much larger than original edition in 1965 and no time limit on use). (Halley's Bible handbook : an abbreviated Bible commentary - one hour limit 1965 872 pages)

Rosscup - A much-used older evangelical handbook bringing together a brief commentary on Bible books, some key archaeological findings, historical background, maps, quotes, etc. It is helpful to a lay Bible teacher, Sunday School leader, or pastor looking for quick, pertinent information on a Bible book. This is the 72nd printing somewhat revised. Halley packed in much information. Unger’s is better overall, but that is not to say that Halley’s will not provide much help on basic information.

The Shaw Pocket Bible Handbook - Editor - Walter Elwell (1984) 408 pages.

"This hardback is small in size but packed full of content: Brief summaries of every book of the bible, cultural, archaeological and historical info, word definitions, pictures, maps and charts." Worth checking! 

The Lion handbook to the Bible - (1999) 822 pages. This resource is absolutely loaded with very nice color pictures and charts.

Wiersbe's Expository Outlines on the New Testament by Wiersbe, Warren W

Cyril Barber - This is a book of exceptional merit. Pastors, missionaries, and Christian workers will profit from its use. Wiersbe introduces each book of the NT, provides an outline, and then furnishes his readers with a chapter-by-chapter discussion of the contents. The homiletic style is a “plus.” Recommended.

Wiersbe's expository outlines on the Old Testament by Wiersbe, Warren W 113 ratings

"Even the most difficult Scriptures come alive as Warren Wiersbe leads you book-by-book through the Old Testament and helps you to see the "big picture" of God's revelation. In this unique volume, you will find: • Introductions and/or outlines for every Old Testament book • Practical expositions of strategic chapters • Special studies on key topics, relating the Old Testament to the New Testament • Easy-to-understand expositions that are practical, preachable, and teachable If you have used Dr. Wiersbe's popular BE series, you know how simple and practical his Bible studies are, with outlines that almost teach themselves. If not, you can now discover a wonderful new resource. This work is a unique commentary on every book of the Old Testament. It contains new material not to be found in the BE series.

The Bible knowledge background commentary : Matthew-Luke by Evans, Craig A -  This resource will give you very interesting insights and is worth checking on individual passages.

Dictionary of Paul and his letters   180 ratings IVP Series

The Dictionary of Paul and His Letters is a one-of-a-kind reference work. Following the format of its highly successful companion volume, the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels, this Dictionary is designed to bring students, teachers, ministers and laypeople abreast of the established conclusions and significant recent developments in Pauline scholarship. No other single reference work presents as much information focused exclusively on Pauline theology, literature, background and scholarship. In a field that recently has undergone significant shifts in perspective, the Dictionary of Paul and His Letters offers a summa of Paul and Pauline studies. In-depth articles focus on individual theological themes (such as law, resurrection and Son of God), broad theological topics (such as Christology, eschatology and the death of Christ), methods of interpretation (such as rhetorical criticism and social-scientific approaches), background topics (such as apocalypticism, Hellenism and Qumran) and various other subjects specifically related to the scholarly study of Pauline theology and literature (such as early catholicism, the center of Paul's theology, and Paul and his interpreters since F. C. Baur). Separate articles are also devoted to each of the Pauline letters to hermeneutics and to preaching Paul today.

Dictionary of the later New Testament & its developments 71 ratings IVP Series

The third of IVP's critically acclaimed series of dictionaries of the New Testament provides focused study on the often-neglected portions of the New Testament: Acts, Hebrews, the General Epistles, and Revelation. Furthermore, its scope goes beyond the life of the New Testament church to include the work of the apostolic fathers and early Christianity up through the middle of the second century.

Dictionary of New Testament background 79 ratings IVP Series

 In a time when our knowledge of the ancient Mediterranean world has grown by leaps and bounds, this volume sets out for readers the wealth of Jewish and Greco-Roman background that should inform our reading and understanding of the New Testament and early Christianity. The Dictionary of New Testament Background takes full advantage of the flourishing study of the Dead Sea Scrolls and offers individual articles focused on the most important scrolls. In addition, the Dictionary encompasses the fullness of second-temple Jewish writings, whether pseudepigraphic, rabbinic, parables, proverbs, histories or inscriptions. Articles abound on aspects of Jewish life and thought, including family, purity, liturgy and messianism. The full scope of Greco-Roman culture is displayed in articles ranging across language and rhetoric, literacy and book culture, religion and cults, honor and shame, patronage and benefactors, travel and trade, intellectual movements and ideas, and ancient geographical perspectives. No other reference work presents so much in one place for students of the New Testament. Here an entire library of scholarship is made available in summary form. 

Dictionary of deities and demons in the Bible (DDD) - 950 pages (1995) Read some of the 65 ratings (4.8/5 Stars). A definitive in depth resource on this subject. Very expensive to purchase. 

WORD STUDY RESOURCES
GREEK AND HEBREW

NOTE - All of these resources can be borrowed from archive.org. This list also includes resources to help study the Bible. 

See also the list of Word Study Resources 

The Complete Word Study Dictionary: New Testament by Zodhiates, Spiros - This is my "go to" resource for Greek word studies. One on the best lexicons for laymen. Highly Recommended for Greek Word Studies to aid your interpretation of a passage. 

Analytical Lexicon of the Greek New Testament by Friberg, Timothy. Shorter definitions than Zodhiates but does an excellent job in summarizing the various nuances of a specific Greek word. One of my favorites.

Shorter Lexicon of the Greek New Testament by Gingrich, F. Wilbur. Similar to Friberg but shorter definitions. Gingrich however gives more Scriptures for each nuance, whereas Friberg generally gives only one representative Scripture. 

The New Linguistic and Exegetical Key to the Greek New Testament by Rogers, Cleon - This book is a gold mine of little gems on individual Greek words in any NT passage you are studying. If you have time it is always worth checking out! I use it in my Greek word studies all the time. 

New Testament Words - William Barclay - 59 ratings very interesting resource - covers about 70 NT Greek words in Barclay's unique style. On page 289 there is a helpful index of English words with the corresponding Greek word, in turn followed by the places Barclay described them in New Testament Words and in his Daily Study Bible series (see list of DSB commentaries here). E.g., take the Greek word for "Covetousness" which is pleonexia and is found in New Testament Words on page 61 and pp 233-235 and is also described in the Daily Study Bible entries for : Mark 7:14-23; Ro 1:28-32; Eph. 4:17-24; Col. 3:5. So you can click the DSB commentary on Mark 7 and scroll down to Mark 7:14 to see Barclay's entry for pleonexia which concludes "Pleonexia ( G4124) is that lust for having which is in the heart of the man who sees happiness in things instead of in God." Interesting!

Greek-English lexicon of the New Testament : based on semantic domains - Louw Nida. Brief but nice definitions. Not easy to use - you need to know some Greek. Classifies Greek words into 93 "semantic domains" (see list on page XXV) and if you can categorize the word you are looking for in one of the domains, it can help find the specific word you are interested in. 

Kittel's Theological Dictionary of the New Testament : abridged in one volume (TDNT) - Classic ("Little Kittel") work summarizing the 10 volume set by Kittel. For most of us the abridged definition is "more than enough!" 

A Greek-English lexicon of the New Testament, and other early Christian literature; by Bauer, Walter, More detailed definitions but need to know Greek. Zodhiates and Friberg much easier to use. 

Liddell and Scott's Greek-English lexicon, abridged : the little Liddell by Liddell, Henry George. The abridged version. You need to know Greek to use.

Exegetical dictionary of the New Testament (Volume 1 - A thru E);  Exegetical dictionary of the New Testament (Volume 3- P thru ...) Volume 2 not available. I do not find this adds much to the easier to use resources like Zodhiates and Friberg. 

A pocket lexicon to the Greek New Testament by Souter, Alexander. Brief definitions. Need to know some Greek. Not that helpful. 

Vine's Expository Dictionary of Old Testament and New Testament Words - pdf. The old standby. You can also borrow Vine's complete expository dictionary of Old and New Testament words

Theological wordbook of the Old Testament by Harris, R. Laird - 229 ratings (5/5 Stars) One of the best OT lexicons for laymen.

Here is another link to the TWOT which has no time limit on use and does allow copy and paste. Can be downloaded as PDF. 

Hebrew honey : a simple and deep word study of the Old Testament by Novak, Alfons,  (332 pages) Indexed by English words. No Strong's numbers to help you determine if you are researching the correct Hebrew word. Here is a "work around" - go to page 289 and see if there is an annotation of the Scripture you are studying. E.g., say you want to see if there is anything for "heart" in Ezek 11:19. In the Scripture list find an entry for Ezek 11:19 with the English word "Heart." Now go look up "Heart" (on page 123). It does take some effort, but you might glean an insight not described in other Hebrew lexicons.

Nelson's Expository Dictionary of the Old Testament by Unger, Merrill. Indexed by English word and then any related Hebrew nouns or verbs. Definitions are solid and geared to the lay person. 

Zondervan NASB exhaustive concordance - 1589 pages

Pocket dictionary for the study of New Testament Greek by DeMoss, Matthew S. If you want to dig a little deeper into Greek. 66 ratings

Seeing The Unseen A Daily Dose Of Eternal Perspective by Randy Alcorn

Reach through the fog of this life?and see the world beyond. From the author of the bestselling book Heaven, here are 60 meditations that will inspire you to live each day with an eternal perspective. Spiritually speaking, we live in the Country of the Blind. Sin has blinded us to the truth about God and Heaven, both of which are real yet unseen. But just as the physically blind must accept by faith there are stars in the sky, we must remind ourselves what Scripture tells us about eternal realities. In daily doses, author Randy Alcorn offers insights on the Christian life along with Scriptures and inspirational quotes that can transform the way you think and live today. It's time to open your eyes and see the unseen.

“I enthusiastically endorse The Treasure Principle. I hope millions will read it.” -Ronald W. Blue, Founder and CEO, Ronald Blue & Company

The treasure principle bible study Discovering the Secret of Joyful Giving by Smith, Brian; Alcorn, Randy (2003)

Readers of Randy Alcorn's bestseller The Treasure Principle encountered a revolution in material freedom and generosity that utterly changed their quality of life. In this companion Bible study, the principles become personally applicable and more real than ever, with a powerful combination of biblical concepts, practical quotations from the book, thought-provoking questions, group discussion starters, and short Scripture passages for meditation and memorization. Managing God's investment in their lives will become a new delight, as Christians learn to put their resources to their most rewarding use.

Publishers Weekly - "When you discover the secret joy of the Treasure Principle, I guarantee you'll never be content with less." So claims Alcorn in the introduction to this small gift book on Christian generosity. Noting that fifteen percent of Christ's teachings in the New Testament deal with money and possessions-more than his teachings on heaven and hell combined-Alcorn compares heavenly treasure, which is eternal, with earthly riches, which "will always be lost" after death. Alcorn encourages Christians to understand that everything they believe they own is actually God's; they are merely managers. He is a compelling storyteller, whether drawing on Scripture, accounts of others who have lived generously, or recounting his own experiences; all of his book royalties and a large portion of his salary go to charity. Analyzing the pervasive disease of "affluenza" and the fact that Americans' unprecedented wealth does not seem to be bringing extraordinary happiness, he says that he and other people who have discovered the secret of unfettered giving know that they are storing up treasures in heaven, their true home. Alcorn's writing here is more akin to a motivational speech (including an overabundance of rhetorical questions, italicized words and exclamation points for emphasis) than a book. However, many Christians will appreciate his countercultural messages that "giving is the only antidote to materialism" and the "health and wealth gospel dishonors Christ." Indeed, for many, this could be a life-changing book.

Our Covenant God : learning to trust Him by Arthur, Kay, 123 ratings Many (most) Christians do not truly grasp the profound, life changing meaning of God's covenants with man. If you have never studied covenant in depth (I am not speaking of listing the facts about the various covenants like Abrahamic, Mosaic, New) you will be pleasantly surprised about the practical truths of God's covenant! I speak with experience because the truth in this study literally "resurrected" our dead marriage and we have now made it to 52 years (2022). I strongly recommend this book. 

His imprint, my expression by Arthur, Kay, 16 ratings devotional that is "filled with the promises of Scripture, these daily meditations focus on Jesus Christ as the answer to every question." 

Beloved - from God's heart to yours by Arthur, Kay (can be borrowed for one hour - plenty of time to use for a daily devotional!) These are not "fluffy" devotionals, but are "bibliocentric," pithy and practical. You will be convicted but encouraged and edified! (30 ratings) (Recommended)

BLOCK, DANIEL

Judges, Ruth. Vol. 6: New American Commentary  (1999) 776 pages Read more user reviews.

Rosscup - An evangelical contributes 586 pp. on Judges and 151 on Ruth. Introductory sections for both books survey the state of scholarly opinion and his belief in the integrity and reliability of the biblical books. Copious footnotes, often lengthy, reflect on others’ views, verifications of points in the books and also in other scripture, etc. Verse by verse work offers detail on grammar, word meaning, background, customs, and interpretive problems. Block holds that Jephthah sacrificed his daughter in death. On passages overall, this is a standout commentary, yet at times it states convictions without a specific answer to other leading views. One instance is in not commenting on the view that Ruth acted indecently with Boaz at night. Some accounts, as episodes of Samson, seem for the most part to be explained in reasonable detail. (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An annotated bibliography of selected works)

Cyril Barber "An exceedingly valuable exegetical and theological exposition. Based on the NIV, though Block gives evidence of working from the Hebrew text. Readers will find this a learned, discerning discussion that readily explains the meaning and message of these twin books. Recommended.

Once again Daniel Block has provided wise perspectives that enable us to 'see with our eyes, hear with our ears, and set our hearts' (Ezek 40:4) on many of the enigmas in the book of Ezekiel. --Mark J. Boda, McMaster Divinity College

Few scholars, whether evangelical or critical, Christian or Jewish, know the book of Ezekiel like Daniel Block. This collection of essays profoundly deepens and enriches our appreciation of the prophet's work and is an essential resource for all who study it. --Iain Duguid, Grove City College --Wipf and Stock Publishers

The book of the Acts (New International Commentary on the New Testament) by Bruce, F. F (1988) 584 pages

Rosscup - This work, first issued in 1954, is now revised not long before Bruce died, with a new translation of the Greek text in place of the ASV. The bibliographical lists are extensively updated in footnotes, Bruce has interacted with later studies, arranged comments on fewer verses, and achieved a more lucid style in places. However, the basic verse-by-verse commentary remains substantially the same. It remains the finest commentary on Acts as to exposition in detail. Bruce points to I. H. Marshall’s commentary for detail on Luke’s theology. He shows a fine grasp of pertinent history, a sound explanation of most passages, and insights on many of the problems.

D A CARSON 

The God who is there : finding your place in God's story by Carson, D. A 274 ratings

It can no longer be assumed that most people--or even most Christians--have a basic understanding of the Bible. Many don't know the difference between the Old and New Testament, and even the more well-known biblical figures are often misunderstood. It is getting harder to talk about Jesus accurately and compellingly because listeners have no proper context with which to understand God's story of redemption. In this basic introduction to faith, D. A. Carson takes seekers, new Christians, and small groups through the big story of Scripture. He helps readers to know what they believe and why they believe it. The companion leader's guide helps evangelistic study groups, small groups, and Sunday school classes make the best use of this book in group settings.

Even today, Jesus is still a figure of intense interest and admiration for millions. But then theres His church. Church is a boring topic for most, and a reluctantly fulfilled duty for many.  And we can understand why. Churches say they have the best news in the world, that they have the answer to our problems, that they are Gods embassies on earth; and yet churches are made up of people like you and me, who are grumpy, irritable, unfaithful, selfish, and worse. And as that is sadly true of churches today, so it was of the church in Corinth. It was young, it was full of life, and it was just as full of problems. What would God say to such a challenging church? What did they need to be excited by, to listen to, to learn? Use this seven-study guide to open up the first nine chapters of the letter of 1 Corinthians, to hear what God said to His church in Corinth, and what God still says to His church today.

PAUL ENNS

Judges Bible Study Commentary: Judges. Everyman's Bible Commentary (1982) (Zondervan)

Cyril Barber - A practical, clearly outlined, conservative treatment. Ideal for lay people.

Ezekiel by Enns, Paul

Rosscup - This is a brief work of only 144 pages, but it is thought provoking. Ellison views 28:11–19 (and Isaiah 14:4–23) as not speaking of the fall of Satan as many believe. He interprets the revolt of Gog in chapters 38–39 as occurring at the end of the millennium in Revelation 20:7–11, as does Erich Sauer in From Eternity to Eternity (p. 134). He also takes chapters 40–48 as allegory and rejects the view of a re-establishing of a literal temple and sacrifices during the millennium. Yet he devotes only eight pages to these nine chapters. Ellison is also contributor of I and II Kings and I and II Chronicles in the New Bible Commentary.

GARSTANG, JOHN

Joshua Judges: The Foundations of Bible History. Grand Rapids: Kregel Publications, 1978.

Cyril Barber's critique - Reprinted after years of neglect, this epochal work treats history, geography, archaeology, and the settlement of Israel in the land. Though he adheres to a modified form of the documentary hypothesis, Garstang's treatment is nevertheless possessed of a freshness and vitality seldom found in works of this nature.

HUGHES, PHILLIP EDCUMBE

Paul's Second epistle to the Corinthians by Hughes, Philip Edgcumbe

Rosscup - This is detailed commentary (508 pages), uses the Greek carefully, discusses technical details in the footnotes, deals carefully and sometimes at length with problems, and shows acquaintance with a great number of other works. It is one of the finer earlier contributions to the NIC series.

Sought by grace by Hughes, R. Kent

Work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Many within the church believe they are saved because they made a profession of faith, believe the Bible is true, and try to live a good life. But the Bible has so much more to say about salvation! R. Kent Hughes presents Sought by Grace, his provocative work seeking to raise readers' level of commitment to work out their salvation. He boldly confronts unbiblical views of salvation while gently leading readers to a deeper understanding of the role Christ plays in their lives as Savior and Lord.

1 & 2 Timothy and Titus : to guard the deposit by Hughes, R. Kent, Rosscup ranks the #3 (out of 6) expositional commentary.

Cyril Barber - The authors include personal anecdotes in these commentaries, and this gives their work a downto-earth quality. They adhere to the text and are not afraid to champion interpretations (e.g., of 1 Timothy 2:11-12) that are unpopular in today’s milieu. Anyone teaching or preaching on these “pastoral” epistles will find considerable help in these pages.

Love to the loveless : the message of Hosea by Kidner, Derek

In the Bible Speaks Today series, this work on Hosea is scholarly in a readable, practical thrust. Kidner gives “A bird’s-eye view of the book” in 5 1/2 pages (137–42) that helps the reader see main thoughts quickly. Though without a numbered outline, the exposition is set off under catchy headings. Kidner favors seeing Hosea 3:5 ultimately fulfilled in what Paul predicts for literal Israel at the end of the present age in Romans 11:12, 15, 25ff. (p. 44; he is unclear on what this means). This is a brief but very competent work presented in a refreshing style by an evangelical of international repute.

LOCKYER, HERBERT

Last words of saints and sinners by Lockyer, Herbert - THIS IS A FASCINATING BOOK TO READ! 105 ratings

The last words of the dying have fascinated readers throughout history. They reveal the fears, hopes, courage, and legacies of both the famous and not-so-famous. This collection of seven hundred quotes includes the last words of commoners, atheists, poets, and politicians along with noted Christians and martyrs. Excellent for casual reading and as a ready reference source for the pastor or public speaker.

Dying, death, and destiny by Lockyer, Herbert

Bible-Centered Devotions on Purity and Hope (Volume I) by Lockyer, Herbert - This is a SLEEPER! I was skimming through and found this little gem to whet your appetite to read this book - "Sin persisted in means that the sinner easily catches fire at temptation." That is a pithy, profound picture of sin! The devotions are punctuated with beautiful black and white photography (in all 4 volumes), something you seldom see today. 

“That life is made up of new beginnings is a truism we cannot escape as we enter the circle of another year. With two faces, one looking back and the other forward, we approach the opening month on our calendar. It signifies life and promise and seems to say to our hearts, ‘Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be.’”—Herbert Lockyer In these Bible-based meditations, Lockyer ponders the message God sends through the seasons to the hearts and souls of humanity. Seasons of the Lord is as multicolored as the leaves of autumn and as spiritually refreshing as the first day of spring. This yearlong devotional combines four of Herbert Lockyer’s seasonal devotionals into one source, with devotions for each day of the year, complete with Scriptures and relevant reflections.

Dark threads the weaver needs by Lockyer, Herbert

“When the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to fly, then the Weaver will explain why the dark threads were as needful as the threads of gold and silver. As the skies continue dark and overcast, and shades of night obscure the light, may grace be ours ever to remember that the God who cannot err is able to make us perfect through suffering.”—Herbert Lockyer, Dark Threads the Weaver Needs 

Suffering is an age-old question that has puzzled the people of God since time began. After all, if our God is both a loving and an all-powerful Being, why does He allow such pain and suffering in the world? At the age of eighty-two, legendary Bible scholar Dr. Herbert Lockyer set out to answer this question. As he watched his wife of sixty-six years slowly fade from loving spouse to an incapacitated person who needed his constant care, he looked upon her afflicted, helpless form and asked, O my God, why? In this outstanding work, Lockyer does not present ideas on how to cope with suffering but rather teaches how to pass through it, removing self-pity and using personal trials as a springboard to help others. In the midst of his darkest hour, Lockyer examines the problem of human suffering in light of God’s love and His eternal plan.

LONGMAN, TEMPER

How to read Exodus by Longman, Tremper

1 Chronicles thru Job by Longman, Tremper (2012) 248 pages.

Here’s an accessible reference that aids personal Bible study or Sunday school preparation—the Layman’s Bible Commentary, reference for the everyday Christian, not the scholar! Volume 4—covering 1 Chronicles through Job—provides section-by-section commentary on the flow and theme of each book, as well as historical and literary context for each. Major interpretations are presented for controversial passages and topics. Puzzling passages and Bible practices are explained, and charts and diagrams further aid your understanding. And “Take It Home” segments provide a practical application for each passage.

The book of Ecclesiastes by Longman, Tremper - New International Commentary on the Old Testament

Cyril Barber - The author provides an extensive introduction to Ecclesiastes, explores the traditional background matters as authorship, language, genre, structure, literary style, and theology. Longman argues that the author of Ecclesiastes is not Solomon (BE A BEREAN Acts 17:11+), but a writer who adopts a “Solomonic persona.” In his verse-by-verse commentary this OT scholar clarifies what to many is the confusing message of Ecclesiastes.

Rosscup - The Professor of OT, Westminster Theological Seminary, argues that in 1:12–12:7 Qoheleth, not Solomon, is pessimistic, but a different writer (narrator) of the prologue (1:1–11) and epilog (12:8ff.) offers the right view of life. He uses the other material as a method to instruct his son (12:12) about the folly into which a mere human perspective can plunge one. Many readers will, however, find much in 1:12–12:7 showing a healthy outlook, as in repeating the fear of God (5:7; 7:18; 8:12–13, as well as 12:13). The fear in the three earlier places need not be seen as “fright” as Longman perceives it as fitting his theory, but can be respectful awe. Longman does not always steer readers aright, but he has a widely-researched work that stimulates scholarly minds, some of this coming in footnotes about such things as word meaning and grammar.

How to read the Psalms by Longman, Tremper

Cyril Barber - Ably introduces the Psalms so that users of this handbook will derive maximum benefit from the devotional reading of this portion of God's Word.

How to read Proverbs by Longman, Tremper

Song of Songs by Longman, Tremper

Rosscup - In a work of 238 big pp. with broad study behind it, Longman says the Song may or may not be by Solomon (ED: I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS GIVEN THAT THE NAME OF THE BOOK IS THE SONG OF SOLOMON. BE A BEREAN Acts 17:11+). The story is not about him, rather the two main characters, a woman and a man, are seen in terms of a literal (natural) sexual relationship, the Song being an anthology of love poems expressing emotions, not a drama with an overall plot, and not a piece with allegorical meanings (27–37). Longman’s discussion of views in history (20–47) is valuable. He sets the poetry in the world of ancient near eastern love poetry (Egyptian, Mesopotamian, northwest semitic, etc., 49–54). It affirms love, sex, and marriage in relation to God’s redemptive aims for relationships, and in sync with Him (70). The commentator devotes a half page to two and a half on verses, unpacking what their meaning suggests, for instance man’s admiring comparison of the woman to a mare among chariots, enhanced by ornaments (1:9). Serious users will include this, one of the top overall sources, especially in the informative introduction and effort to keep a natural sense (cf. the opposite in Brooks, among many others).

Cyril Barber - The author is unclear as to whether or not this Song was written by Solomon. He does not believe that the story is about Solomon, but rather that this anthology is about a man and a woman involved in a sexual relationship. He does not believe that there is any uniform plot, nor does he see in the text grounds for allegorical meanings. Scholarly. Contains excellent word studies.

MOO, DOUGLAS

Galatians by Moo, Douglas J

Tim Challies - Douglas Moo – The Epistle to the Romans (New International Commentary on the New Testament). There is no shortage of commentaries on the book of Romans! Not only that, but there is no shortage of excellent commentaries to choose from. Pride of place appears to go to Douglas Moo and his contribution to the NICNT series. D.A. Carson commends it and says, “Moo exhibits extraordinary sense in his exegesis. No less importantly, this is the first commentary to cull what is useful from the new perspective on Paul while nevertheless offering telling criticism of many of its exegetical and theological stances.”

Cyril Barber - Moo, Douglas J. The Epistle to the Romans. New International Commentary on the New Testament. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1996. This commentary focuses both on the theological meaning and the contemporary significance of Paul’s letter. Of value is Moo’s discussion on such issues as Jewish law, the relationship between Jews and Gentiles and the people of God. Moo carefully analyzes each passage and interacts with the views of others before stating his views with meticulous precision. Here is a work that ranks with the best works on this epistle.

Keith Mathison (Ligonier) - Number one rated =  Douglas Moo — The Epistle to the Romans (New International Commentary on the New Testament, 2018). The first edition of Douglas Moo’s NICNT commentary on Romans was published in 1996. It has recently been released in a second updated edition. This commentary is judged by many to be the best all-around evangelical commentary on Romans. It is thorough, but it is not overly technical. Moo presents his exegetical arguments carefully and cogently. This reader is especially impressed by his treatment of Romans 11. In terms of intermediate–advanced level commentaries, this one is the best place to begin. Moo has also written the commentaries on Romans in the Encountering series and in the NIVAC series.

The letter of James by Moo, Douglas J - Pillar NT Commentary Series

Tim Challies - Douglas Moo – The Letter of James (Pillar New Testament Commentary). Moo’s commentary is widely regarded as the best treatment of James and is universally recommended by the commentators on the commentaries. You may recognize his name from the recommendations for Romans where his name also appears. Keith Mathison says it well: “If you can only have one commentary on James, this is the one to have. Highly recommended.” Do note that Moo has also written a volume for the Tyndale New Testament Commentary series; if you own this one (which you should) you will have no need for the other.

Cyril BarberThis highly original commentary seeks to make the letter of James clear and applicable to Christians living today. While interacting with the latest views of this portion of God’s Word, Moo avoids giving it an academic flavor. He ably bridges the gap between James’ 1st century readers and believers today. Insightful.

Keith Mathison (Ligonier) - Number 1 rated = Douglas Moo — The Letter of James (Pillar New Testament Commentary, 2000). Douglas Moo is one of the top conservative New Testament scholars alive today. He has written one of the best commentaries on Romans, and now one of the best commentaries on James. If you can only have one commentary on James, this is the one to have. Highly recommended. Moo has also contributed the volume on James in the Tyndale New Testament Commentary series, but if you have the Pillar volume, the Tyndale volume is unnecessary.

James Rosscup -   Moo, Douglas J. The Letter of James (Pillar NTC). Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2000.   Moo in this exegetical study is longer (271 pp.) than his earlier effort in this list. He argues for authorship by James, the Lord’s brother (20–22), discusses seven areas of theology (27–43), and argues that in James faith of those God has freely justified expresses its reality in obeying God (38, etc.), as Paul held in “faith working through love” (Gal. 5:6). Clear exposition is thought out well, and sometimes Moo grapples with views and problems (not all, cf. “crown,” 1:12, and Hodges). In 2:14 he distinctly counters Hodges (123–24), and again at 2:18, 26 (128–29, 143). His detail on 2:14–26 is fairly helpful; he also is diligent with “spirit” in 4:5, and “sick” in 5:14. Among medium-length works, this is one of the best in recent years.

The letter of James : an introduction and commentary by Moo, Douglas J - Tyndale New Testament Commentary

James Rosscup -    Moo, Douglas J. The Letter of James: An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale New Testament Commentary). Downers Grove: IVP, 1985. 191 pp.   Eerdmans published the same commentary in 1989. It is a concise, conservative, clear work adept in exegetical details from careful research by a member of the New Testament faculty at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. It is helpful especially for teachers and preachers. Moo, who did the massive 2-volume work on Romans, also wrote “James” in The Evangelical Commentary on the Bible, ed. W. A. Elwell (Grand Rapids: Baker, 1989).

Galatians : Paul's charter of Christian freedom by Morris, Leon,

Rosscup - This concise product often says a lot that shoots to the crux in a well-organized form. Morris has readable print and flowing style. Teachers, preachers, students and laity will profit by following through verses and getting some careful help on some of the problems, though at times space does not allow posing considerations (3:17; 6:16), contributing to some generality. It is a rather good survey by a discerning scholar, it simply vies with many works that provide far more, at least for teachers and diligent studying pastors.

The Letters of John : an Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale New Testament Commentaries) by Stott, John R. W (1988) 244 pages. 89 ratings

Tim Challies - John Stott is always an able commentator and his volume in the TNTC is no exception. Carson praises it as “one of the most useful conservative commentaries on these epistles, so far as the preacher is concerned” and says “it is packed with both exegetical comments and thoughtful application.” The TNTC is targeted squarely at a general audience, so both pastors and interesting general readers will find it tremendously beneficial. If you are looking for a commentary to guide you as you read John’s epistles devotionally, this is probably the one you want.

VOS, HOWARD

Genesis (Everyman's Bible Commentary) by Vos, Howard Frederic, 8 ratings Vos was Professor of History and Archaeology, King’s College, Briarcliff Manor, New York. 

James Rosscup - A simple, broad survey by a conservative who tends to give some good comments but at times not nail down his view to explain a matter (cf. his survey of four views on days in Genesis 1, then leaving the matter hanging, and not commenting on how long God rested in 2:1–3; or his not choosing a preference on “sons of God” on Genesis 6 after a shallow consideration of issues). However, in a concise treatment he does touch on many of the problems.

Roscupp - Vos was Professor of History and Archaeology, King’s College, Briarcliff Manor, New York, In this conservative work he gives a long outline at the outset, then incorporates this in his survey of I and 2 Samuel. For many Bible teachers, preachers, and lay people the exposition helpfully sums up what is said and some implications. It offers brief explanation of some main problems, such as the number judged at Beth Shemesh in I Samuel 6:19ff. and how to fill in the number of Saul’s years in 13:1.

Wiersbe's Expository Outlines on the New Testament by Wiersbe, Warren W

Cyril Barber - This is a book of exceptional merit. Pastors, missionaries, and Christian workers will profit from its use. Wiersbe introduces each book of the NT, provides an outline, and then furnishes his readers with a chapter-by-chapter discussion of the contents. The homiletic style is a “plus.” Recommended.

The Bible exposition commentary by Wiersbe, Warren W - All NT books in one source. Excellent. Or here

Rosscup - One of America’s most appreciated staunchly evangelical Bible conference teachers gives diligent, refreshing expositions. These are all of his 23 separate, earlier books in the “Be” series on the New Testament. He strikes a particular appeal with lay people as he crystallizes sections, deals with some of the verses, handles certain problems and backgrounds and applies principles. He is premillennial.

Key words of the Christian life : understanding and applying their meanings by Wiersbe, Warren 

The biblical shorthand of theological language is useful for expressing complicated doctrines-but only for those who understand it. Key Words of the Christian Life demystifies words and concepts like "justification," "sanctification," and "adoption into the family of God" for lay readers. Each chapter focuses on a New Testament word or phrase that has important implications for the believer's life and faith. Warren Wiersbe gives easy-to-grasp explanations of each word's theological meaning, along with practical application for the Christian life. Wiersbe's careful teaching will be invaluable to everyone from new believers to those looking for resources to teach others the powerful implications of key Bible words.

WOOD, LEON

Genesis : a study guide : Wood, Leon

Rosscup -  This is a republication of the 1975 study guide of 152 pp. below.   A staunch conservative offers a quick survey in basic information, often resolving main problems briefly. He leaves open the length of the days in Genesis 1, employs a detailed outline, and primarily assists lay readers and students looking for a terse review. A fine, brief evangelical survey of the main flow of the book, with a number of quite helpful comments on problem areas most readers want to see discussed. Among the briefer works this is one of the best.

Daniel : Bible study commentary by Wood, Leon James

The Holy Spirit in the Old Testament - Leon Wood - 164 pages (1978). See user reviews

Survey of Israel's History - Revised Edition - Leon Wood - 416 pages (1986). See user reviews

James Rosscup - This is one of the most rewarding surveys available from the standpoint of giving a survey and yet pausing on key problem areas to state a well-considered view and specific supports marshalled briefly. It is firmly evangelical.

James Rosscup - Chapter 8 surveys the Joshua period succinctly but very helpfully in conservative style, dealing with main problems such as the long day and providing frequently good footnotes. Another fine survey of conservatives is by John J. Davis & John C. Whitcomb, Israel, A Commentary on Joshua-2 Kings (Grand Rapids: Baker, 1989, 542 pp.). The latter work combines three former books, Conquest and Crisis, The Birth of a Kingdom and Solomon to the Exile. Wood’s section on Joshua, as the other parts, offers comments that pull together main truths and seek to assist on main problems even to the extent of giving views and reasons.

The Bible & future events : an introductory survey of last-day events - Leon Wood - 208 pages. See user reviews.

The prophets of Israel  - Leon Wood - 405 pages (1979)  See user reviews

James Rosscup - A thoroughly conservative work, very clearly written, in two sections, prophetism and the prophets. Wood under the first division goes into the identity, meaning of “to prophesy,” function, the Holy Spirit and prophecy, and other aspects. In the second, he discusses in some detail prophets before Samuel, Samuel, monarchy prophets, and the writing prophets from the ninth century to post-exilic days. This is a fine book that gives the student or pastor a much better, integrated understanding of the prophets behind the prophetic books.

The dangers of a shallow faith : awakening from spiritual lethargy by Tozer, A. W.

The glory of Christ (2002) John Armstrong, Jim Elliff, Albert Mohler, J I Pacer

The whole Bible is focused on Jesus, from Genesis to Revelation; yet it is sometimes preached as if its sole purpose is to be a handbook for daily living, a guide for a happy marriage or for successful child-rearing. While it is right to look to God's Word for principles and insights regarding these practical issues, we must also see within its pages the fresh revelation of the person of God's unique Son, Jesus Christ. The Glory of Christ challenges and guides readers in doing just that. Chapters are drawn from sessions given at the Solus Christus: Rediscovering the Wonder of Christ's Glory conference, presented by Reformation and Revival Ministries. Contributors include John Armstrong, Jim Elliff, R. Albert Mohler, Jr., and J. I. Packer. The authors believe that true revival will come only when we as God's people return to the centrality of Jesus Christ. Recovering the wonders of Christ alone is not merely an antiquated slogan of the 16th-century Reformation, declares this book. It is the flame which will ignite a new reformation today.

Ablaze with His glory by Fehsenfeld, Del (1989) 196 pages 5 ratings

God gives "burning" men and women to every generation--prophets commissioned by Him to boldly penetrate hearts and set them ablaze with revival and reformation. Del Fehsenfeld Jr. was that kind of man, and this book is a potent summation of his life message. But be warned: This isn't just a book that you read--this is a book that reads you! The truths of personal and corporate revival unpacked in Ablaze with His Glory can spark a revolutionary encounter with God. Are you ready to be set on fire by the power of God's presence? Then you're ready for Ablaze!

America : turning a nation to God by Evans, Tony (2015) 216 pages 95 ratings

In America: Turning a Nation to God, Dr. Evans helps Christians understand that at the core, America's problems are spiritual. And, God and His rule are America's only hope. As His people, God is calling us to return to Him in humility and repentance, to submit to His rule and authority. Only as we commit to doing so, individually and collectively, will we realize that hope. We hold within the collective body of Christ not only the power but also the capacity to put our country back on the path of ascendancy. This straight-forward teaching, when embraced by believers in our nation, will usher in the greatest revival in American history.
