Discover the Powerful Preaching Commentaries of Dr. George Brooks
Brooks has been preaching for 37 years. He preaches every Sunday. This is why, many years ago, Brooks began writing his Preaching Commentary Collection. Everything in the his commentaries has been preached, by him, to his congregation.
When Brooks approaches a passage of Scripture, it is with preaching in mind. He will tell you that every sermon should start with Scripture, and should contain 3 things: Interpretation, Illustration and Application. His commentaries do this with precision, illumination and inspiration. About this, he says, "I ask myself what questions my congregants would ask about this Scripture, and I try to provide answers to those questions."
A Preacher's Commentary for Preachers and Teachers
Much of what you find in Brooks' commentaries will challenge you, excite you, and inspire you. He has a gift for knowing when to slow down and tell a homespun story to make his point personal. Sometimes he'll pause to highlight a Greek or Hebrew word and explain why this is important. More than anything, you’ll appreciate his considerate clarity of thought. "I've got people in my church that range from small children to a 97 year old. I have to phrase things so everyone can understand," he says.
Brooks Will Help You "Celebrate”
Each section of Scripture is handled in a way for it to be a self-contained sermon or lesson. He often ends each section with an inspiring poem or hymn. Brooks says, "I believe the hymnal is one of the best friends of the preacher." Sometimes he'll conclude with what he calls a celebration. "In our church it's common to conclude in a spirit of celebration."
For example, in the first chapter of Acts, Brooks reminds us that "Jesus is really the primary actor in the Book of Acts." He tells us that Jesus is important in the Book of Acts and every other book of the Bible because:
- No condition can confine him
- No affliction can amaze him
- No dilemma can restrict him
- No power can limit him
- No enemy can defeat him
- No pressure can control him
- No stumbling block can obstruct him
- No sin can corrupt him
- No problem can perplex him
- No difficulty can discourage him
- No burden can crush him
- No power can oppress him
- No grave can hold him
Brooks offers "celebration" like this often, and it's preachable, teachable, and conducive to worship.
Brooks is great with words and employs wonderful alliterations and point-by-point outlines ready to go. These materials are of great benefit and value and are available ONLY in and for WORDsearch users. The 22 volumes cover every New Testament book except the Gospels and Revelation, plus you'll get the OT commentary on Nehemiah.
As a bonus, this set also includes 9 additional volumes that Brooks has written on preaching.
