Unlock the riches of the God's Word with the Key Word Commentary. This book by Mark Water, provides a one-page overview for all of the chapters of the Old and New Testaments. Each chapter is analyzed, outlined, summarized, and on each page ten keys are used to unlock a single chapter of the Bible. These keys include:
- Before and After - Gives the context of the preceding and following chapters in the Bible.
- Analysis of Chapter - Breaks the chapter into sections with theme headings.
- Key Verse - There is often more than one key verse in a chapter, but thinking about these selections will challenge you to understand the chapter.
- Key Word - Considering the word chosen here will give the reader an opportunity to think carefully about the significance of the chapter.
- Key Person/Event - It is surprisingly easy to miss the significant happening in a chapter of the Bible, even in those chapters you are familiar with, because you think you know all about it. Forcing yourself to note the key event and/or key person in a chapter will bring the content of the chapter into clear focus.
- Key Thought - Discover why Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones thought Psalm 51 was the classic psalm on repentance. Or, find out which psalm Augustine valued so much in his personal worship of God.
- Key Thing(s) to Look For - From the writings of Bible scholars of every century, you will be drawn to the most important point in each chapter.
- Key Bible Cross-Reference - These cross-references engage you in one of the most profitable aspects of Bible study: comparing Scripture with Scripture.
- Key "By Way of Explanation" - Using background details, puzzling words or ideas in the chapter will be clearly explained.
- Key "Quotable Quote" - These quotes from expert Bible expositors offer illuminating commentary on the chapter, or one verse from the chapter.
