After reviewing Volumes 8-12 of the QuickNotes Simplified Bible Commentary Series, I found it to be very user-friendly for the layman who wants to explore the Bible.

The QuickNotes series takes that problem away by demystifying the Bible in a simple way for the reader. This commentary presents the reader with a practical manual of spiritual development by thoroughly describing each book and adding sections of explanation such as critical observation, setting up the section, demystification and taking it home. Each section contains valuable insights and information to assist the reader with a better understanding of the Bible's intent. I also really enjoyed the way that the editors set up each book by describing what was happening at the times outside of the religious teachings. If you are thinking about studying the Bible and not sure where to start, I highly recommend the QuickNotes commentary series, which includes this 5-volume set, "The Complete New Testament Commentary Set" compiled by Lisa Harris.

More About Barbour Publishing


Barbour Publishing Since the company began as "Book Bargains" in 1981, much has happened to bring this company from a small remainder seller into a prominent Christian publisher. When Hugh Barbour began buying and reselling other publishers' excess stock, he was introducing a new concept to Christian bookstores. Soon, though, the new company began publishing its own titles, beginning with the classic allegory The Pilgrim's Progress in 1984.

With a new name, Barbour & Company, publishing operations continued with two books that Hugh Barbour says "really put us on the map" — Oswald Chambers's beloved devotional My Utmost for His Highest, and Barbour's first original title, The Bible Promise Book. Each found a ready market and, millions of copies later, remain on Barbour's best-selling backlist. Barbour & Company had found its niche: publishing Christian classics at value prices.

Mission
The Barbour mission was unique in Christian retailing, and it was beginning to take hold in Christian bookstores around the country. Through the 1990s, the company experienced phenomenal growth in sales and product line and changed its name once again, to Barbour Publishing, Inc. The years surrounding the turn of the millennium would bring almost dizzying change to the company, with new products, new relationships, and even new ownership.

In 1998, Barbour Publishing entered into a trade distribution agreement with Discovery House Publishers, the publishing arm of the Grand Rapids-based Radio Bible Class Ministries. Since DHP is the publisher of the updated edition of My Utmost for His Highest, the agreement brought a unified approach to the distribution of both the classic and updated editions of this powerful book.

After a remarkable forty-seven year career in Christian publishing (a career honored by the 1999 Lifetime Achievement Award of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association), Hugh Barbour decided to retire. The company he had built into a thriving business was acquired by its president & CEO Tim Martins, the man he'd been grooming for leadership for several years preceding.

Today, Barbour's frontlist releases number more than 150 titles per year. That, coupled with nearly one thousand stock titles, allows Barbour to provide retailers around the globe with affordable and accessible Christian products for everyone. In its brief history, Barbour has shipped over one hundred million books.

It's fourteen million books sharing the message of Christ!

Faithfulness to the Bible and Jesus Christ are the bedrock values behind every book Barbour's staff produces from its 115,000-square foot facilities in Uhrichsville, Ohio. When the company's unit sales reached fourteen million in a fiscal year, Martins commented, "I'm really excited about that figure. That's fourteen million Christian books - not fourteen million hamburgers, or fourteen million cars, or fourteen million computers. It's fourteen million books sharing the message of Christ!"

Reviews - What do customers think about Quicknotes - Complete New Testament Commentary Set (QuickNotes Commentaries)?

User-friendly for the layman who wants to explore the Bible....  Jan 19, 2010
Reviewed by Cherie Fisher for Reader Views (01/10)

After reviewing Volumes 8-12 of the QuickNotes Simplified Bible Commentary Series, I found it to be very user-friendly for the layman who wants to explore the Bible. In my capacity as a Spiritual Coordinator of a Church, I often find that people are overwhelmed when they first pick up the Bible and don't know where they should start reading. The QuickNotes series takes that problem away by demystifying the Bible in a simple way for the reader.

This commentary presents the reader with a practical manual of spiritual development by thoroughly describing each book and adding sections of explanation such as critical observation, setting up the section, demystification and taking it home. Each section contains valuable insights and information to assist the reader with a better understanding of the Bible's intent. I also really enjoyed the way that they editors set up each book by describing what was happening at the times outside of the religious teachings.

The books in the QuickNotes that I reviewed are:

Volume 8 - "Matthew & Mark: Good News for Everyone" - The gospel of Matthew was believed to have been written by Matthew and was written around 70AD. It contains a lot of background information that is important to Jesus genealogy and became the early church's favorite gospel. It is also well-known because of its description of the Jesus "Sermon on the Mount." The gospel of Mark is the shortest of all the gospels written and was believed to have been written from Rome. It may be the most overlooked of the gospels but the editors point out that Mark's fresh approach to what happened should not be overlooked.

Volume 9 - "Luke & John: Life That Lasts Forever" - The gospel of Luke is probably the most sophisticated and descriptive when it comes to Jesus' works. The fact that he was a physician and highly educated is attributed to this fact. I especially like the editor's comment that he had a high regard for women, which was not common during those times. The disciple James, who is commonly known as the disciple that Jesus loved is believed to be the author of John. His teachings focus more on Jesus as the Messiah than on the kingdom of God.

Volume 10 - "Acts thru 2 Corinthians: What About Church" - This book contains the gospels of Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians and 2 Corinthians. The Acts were believed to be written by Luke and the editors thought an appropriate name for this book is the "Acts of the Holy Spirit." The Romans is not actually a gospel but a letter to the Romans written by Paul and his focus is on God's righteousness. 1 Corinthians is another letter written by Paul to the Roman Colony of Corinth. Corinth was a wealthy city that was full of immorality and Paul's letter is written from the point of integrity for the early church in that area. 2 Corinthians once again is written by Paul with more detailed information and advice for the early church, a lot of which is still used today.

Volume 11 - "Galatians thru Philemon: Putting Faith Into Practice" - This volume contains numerous letters from Paul to various people and ministries. These include letters to the Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Thessalonians, Timothy, Titus and Philemon.

Volume 12 - "Hebrews thru Revelation: Wisdom for Today - and Forever" - No one is sure who wrote the letter to the Hebrews or where exactly it was written. But it was written during the time when the faith of the early Christians was starting to return to their old faiths and the intent was to keep them on the path of the Early Church. This volume also contains letters written by James, Peter, John and Jude. The final book written in this volume is the Book of Revelations, which talks about the end times. Its purpose was to encourage Christians to stay the course when persecution was at its worst during those times.

If you are thinking about studying the Bible and not sure where to start, I highly recommend the QuickNotes Commentary series, which includes this 5-volume set, "The Complete New Testament Commentary Set," compiled by Lisa Harris.
