New Lay Commentaries

I have been slowly collecting a few commentary series over the years for our shelves.  I have a few of the Holman Commentaries that started coming out a few years ago.  They are a little pricier as they first come out and so I have been buying them more slowly hoping for some used copies to save a little.  I am also collecting the Be Series by Warren Wiersbe.  As I study a book of the Bible I have been buying them used.  They are quite affordable because they have been on the market for about 40 years.  They have been republished a few times.  Sometimes I snag an old copy and sometimes I find the newer publications of them.  This particular one... the Genesis series... is in three volumes and I managed to get all of them in the newer publication for about $4.00 to $5.00 each.... WIN!!!  One of the best things about these is that they are written for the layperson (not theological seminary PhD pastor types).  So, anyone can read and understand them without a seminary degree.  I wanted something my teenagers could feel free to use, too, as they wanted to study.  Here is my new study series that was completed yesterday...  I will be reading them starting this weekend!

  1. I have his commentary on ! Peter - I agree, they are both well written and theologically accurate, but not intimidating for a lay person to read and understand.
