Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Wiersbe Bible Commentary: Old Testament (1V)?
Totally worth it Feb 8, 2010
I had no problems. It was my first time purchasing from this site so I really have nothing to compare it to, but it was a great price (1/2 the retail price) it came quickly and in great condition. I have no complaints.
BUY AND READ Jan 19, 2010
Commentaries are absolutely essential for the serious bible student longing to hear and be transformed by God's beautiful voice. Pastor Wiersbe's commentary is outstanding.
All of Wiersbe's OT "Be" commentaries in one small-print volume Jan 11, 2009
"The Wiersbe Bible Commentary: The Complete Old Testament" is all of Wiersbe's Old Testament "Be" commentaries collected together, word-for-word, in one edition.
WHAT'S THE SAME: the commentary. Every word has been preserved, from Genesis through Malachi.
WHAT'S MISSING: the "Be" themed titles ("Be Basic"; "Be Delivered"; etc.); the "Study Questions" that were at the end of each "Be" book.
WHAT'S NEW: a 2-page introduction by Pastor Wiersbe.
CONS: To fit all of these commentaries into one volume they had to shrink the type size way down to something like a 6-point font. The footnotes are especially tiny and I have to lean close to see what's on the page. That's not a big problem for me because I have pretty average vision, but if you rely on large-print, you may as well skip this edition or else get a magnifying glass.
Another potential problem is that the paper is so thin and the margins so tiny. I suppose they had to be so all of these wonderful books would fit into one volume. For example, Wiersbe's original commentary on Joshua, "Be Strong" is 168 pages, plus 12 pages of "Study Questions". Here they have squeezed the commentary text, word-for-word, onto 49 pages. They squeezed all of the books down into 1533 pages, each one thin as a razor's edge. This becomes a problem when you want to write notes in the margins. My pen bleeds through this extremely thin paper. Also, the margins are only about 1/4-inch-- not a lot of room to write. If you like to interact with a book, pen in hand, this edition probably isn't your best option.
PROS: This edition is an outstanding value. Each of Wiersbe's Old Testament "Be" commentaries costs between 8 and 10 dollars, so look at the price of this edition and do the math. It's a steal.
The binding feels solid, and when I open it to a page it stays open instead of closing on me.
And while I criticized the font size, I have no problems with the actual font. It's very readable. And the use of bold print is helpful for seeing the layout of the book. It's very well organized.
Finally, Wiersbe's writing style is accessible and the conclusions he draws from the Biblical text have proven practical and helpful in my walk with the Lord. He's not quite as folksy and "down-to-earth" as J. Vernon McGee, but he has the same passion for putting God's Word out there for the common people who want to understand how God wants them to live.
CONCLUSION: I didn't have hundreds of dollars to spend on the original "Be" books, so I got this volume. While there are some drawbacks (tiny print size and margins, thin paper, no "Study Questions"), I'll treasure this edition and keep using it until I lose my eyesight.
Great commentary Mar 30, 2008
I purchased this commentary twice, for my adult son and family and for myself. Warren Wiersbe adheres to the original meaning of the Scriptures, yet makes it understandable and applicable. We really like it and find it very helpful in planning Bible study lessons.
