Reviews - What do customers think about Bible Knowledge Commentary:Old & New Testament-2V?
great reference material Feb 6, 2007
These commentaries are excellent for giving explanantion to each verse in scripture. The depth and clarity makes reading and understanding God's word so much more real. I would recommend both volumes to the beginner all the way through the advanced scholar. A must have!
A Marvelous Resource Jan 15, 2007
My wife and I have used this commentary for several years, and found it to always be concise and reliable. We can recommend it to both the new student of the Bible, as well as the more seasoned student of scripture. The doctrinal position presented can be generally descirbed as pre-millennial and dispensational.
It appears that fewer and fewer churches today are helping their members grow to a better and deeper understanding of the Bible. Many church members are looking for help as they undertake a deeper, personal study of the Word of God. This commentary can be an invaluable source of information as one makes one's way from Genesis to Revelation.
The ultimate responsibility for personal growth lies with each individual beliver. Where the local assembly fails to provide guidance; these volumns can serve as a faithful guide to the truths of God's Word. With all sincerety, I strongly recommend that anyone seeking to grow toward spiritual maturity, make these volumns a part of their lives.
As one observes the increasing chaos in the world today; knowing God's sure plan for this age, and resting in the sufficiency of His love, and His grace is a sure source of comfort.
Outstanding Commentary Feb 12, 2006
As a Christian with slight Dispensational leanings, I found this commentary very helpful. This commentary is written by a collection of Dallas Theological Seminary professors. The writings are concise and plain, yet they cover a wealth of information. They delve into the difficult topics of today, such as authorship of the Pentateuch and literal versus allegorical prophetic interpretation. Each book's commentary begins with a study of the authorship, date, audience, theme and purpose. Then an outline of the book is given. Many charts are added to help give deeper understanding, and are not too difficult for the layperson nor too minimal for the theologian to benefit from. The format of the writing gives a summary title for a passage and then discusses it, rather than going verse-by-verse or splitting up the context. For a small-volume commentary set, this is a superb contribution. I am very glad to have added it to my library, and plan to continue using it throughout my studies.
Excellent resource for bible college educated Jan 19, 2006
I purchased the electronic version of this book (saves space and money). It does not have the depth of a single bible book commentary and hence why my Life and Let of Paul II professor rejected me using this commentary as a credible source on my Romans exegetical paper.
But for any standard single volume commentary this is the best of the best that I have used at least. The LANTC commentary is very limited with its depth (because it focuses too much on application) while this commentary digs a bit deeper into the text.
Mark 9:48 is a very complex passage to understand for many, as few understand what the "worm" is symbolic for. Some believe that worms will literally eat up unbelievers for all of eternity, and others believe that the "worm" is symbolic for a humans internal soul.
This commentary gave me allot more depth to the passage (not as much as a single book commentary) but it did well for being a single volume bible commentary. The LANTC commentary offered less than a paragraph of commentary on this verse.
So overall I strongly reccommend this commentary. But sadly the sad state of the church is in decay. Many are not interested in these types of commentaries, since many would rather not study the bible in depth. Those who go to bible college or seminary do study in depth, and its sad that the in depth studying stops after graduation for many christians.
But for the educated and those with a deep hunger for Gods word, I strong encourage you to purchase this. If you lack the physical space, you can always buy the electronic version online.
Incredible comentary! Dec 10, 2005
