Item description for The Preacher's Commentary - OT Old Testament Vol.5. (Preachers Commentary #5) by John C. Maxwell...
Overview "As you use this volume, you will be impressed with how regularly and insightfully Dr. Maxwell does indeed "bring the power of the past to bear on the present." This commentary is full to the brim with contemporary illustrations, anecdotes, quotations, and applications. Biblical passages are clearly interpreted, and then neatly applied through ordered, contemporary principles. In Dr. Maxwell's hands, Deuteronomy addresses our current situation with vigor and relevance."--Lloyd J. Ogilvie, Editor, Mastering The Old Testament For those on the firing line in pulpits, classes, study groups, and Bible fellowship clusters, here is a distinctly different kind of commentary. Mastering the Old Testament combines rich resources of the historical setting and textual interpretation with practical application to aid in contemporary Bible study. This commentary provides critical textual exposition, corollary verses or illustrations from other portions of the Bible, and classical or contemporary life-situation illustrations.
General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations.
The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.
