Review of Bible Knowledge Commentary by J. Budka Dec 14, 2005
Zucks Bible Knowledge Commentary is a good read for genral Bible studies of the Old Testament or college Old Testament classes. Zuck gives a lot background information that is very helpfull in studying the prophets, which helps bring clarity to their visions and their messages to Israel/Judah and surrounding nations. Zuck also helps explain other difficult passages for the reader that are debated by higher critics on a tuffer scale. For example he helps with Isaiah chapter 49 and gives simple analogies and perscriptions for the problems that accur with the branch (i.e. Servant) and to whom they may apply. Zuck also gives an outline at the beginning of every book and sometimes even the chapters are outlined as well. Zuck also may give a short summary of the chapters and book to show his thoughts and perspective of the main focus, this in turn allows the reader to study the book through an educated lens and that may bring about things that would otherwise go unnoticed. This Bible Knowledge Commentary is best used for general studies and not in-depth research for pastors/teachers. However the commentary does really help with some of the charts that it has such as on the timeline/chronology of Jeremiah's prophecies and events. Such charts prove to bring illumination to the main points and rally help to show its main thrust. Zuck's commentary is a very well rounded study text that has healthy theology and interpretative thoughts. Zuck does stand his ground on keeping faithful to his own beliefs but never imposes too much on the text as to add or discredit something on the text. This is an excellent book for someone's library and can be enjoyable to pass on to other Christians who may have struggles understand the Old Testament.
A necessary resource for study, maturity, and preaching Dec 14, 2005
Using the BKC in conjunction with reading for a class on prophetic literature has broadened my horzons of understanding of this genre of literature. There are so many times when a nation, location, religion, or event is mentioned in the text that I have little to no knowledge about and commentaries such as this give an excellent, brief summary of what is going on in the background. As a student, this resource is definately one of the crown jewels in my meager library but I think it will remain so even if the day comes when my library reaches 1000+ volumes (at least, I'm praing it will ;) )
Great Commentary Dec 14, 2005
I found this book to be a great resource. Although the book had a dispensational pull, it still gave different views on passages that were difficult. It was still very helpful. I liked that each verse was touched, but it left room for the reader to study and exegete the passage.
I found the maps and charts helpful as well. It is always nice to have a visual. It was good to have several commentators giving insight on the different books. Overall I think the book was well worth reading.
Bible Knowledge Commentary Dec 14, 2005
This commentary gives a good and general review of significant concepts and points in the Old Testament. This is a must for any student wanting to understand the Old Testament. The commentators are well grounded in their theology and supported by a well known seminary.
Throughout the text there are numerous pictures and diagrams to assist in understanding the Bible better. Each book of the Bible is covered not only historically, but also accurately covers criticisms of authorship and date issues in the various books. On difficult passages, multiple views are given, so it is not one-sided.
This book definitely broadens your view of the Old Testament. The layout of the book is the same as the Old Testament: Genesis-Malachi. Throughout the prophetical books, other contemporary themes are referenced from that time. Also, key concepts and words are laid out in bold faced print, making it helpful to see these key concepts. The significant Hebrew words are highlighted and defined.
This is a commentary for the beginner and for the advanced student who wants to obtain a better understanding of God's Word. It is well worth the price and valuable tool, one you definitely need in your library.
Bible Knowledge Commentary Dec 13, 2005
The Bible Knowledge Commentary is a helpful resource for bible study. Although it is a bit biased from a dispenstational, Dallas Semenary point of view, I found it to be somewhat insightful and helpful in knowing the historical background of each book and some key issues within the books of the Bible. It's worth having in your library.
