About The Guide to the Psalms
4 volumes, The Guide to the Psalms is Scroggie's monumental study of the Psalms. It takes you deeply into the fascinating world of Hebrew poetry. Scroggie presents you with main divisions of each Psalm, including the speeches within a Psalm, from one or more voices.
Each Psalm has a Title, and at the end a Thought designed to fix the main lesson of the Psalm in your mind. A note is added to each that relates the Psalm to an incident in Christian understanding. The Exposition (commentary) offers interpretative, homiletical, and devotional help.
Regarding Hebrew poetry, you’ll find examples of Parallelism that is Synonymous, Antithetic, Synthetic, Introverted, Iterative, Responsory,Climacteric, and Alternate.
About The Guide to the Gospels
"I do not believe that we have to make a choice between the critical and the devotional study of the gospels, but that the critical should be pursued devotionally, and the devotional, critically." - Scroggie
Acknowledged by many as a classic work of biblical scholarship, A Guide to the Gospels provides a book-by-book treatment of the foundational New Testament books. Every element of the 4 gospels is covered under the three divisions of this study. A careful, analytical study of each gospel, Scroggie notes each author’s audience, style of writing, sources, design, omissions, uniqueness, geography, miracles, parables, discourses, and more. Scroggie’s introduction to this work opens by giving 14 specific segments of advice to make studying the gospels more enjoyable and fruitful.
Scroggie charts key Scriptures to be studied and memorized. He makes us familiar with important characters, such as Roman emperors, church fathers, religious sects, important historical events, OT references in the gospels, the Jewish calendar, and much more.
Finally, Scroggie goes into great detail, charting what he titles, The Gospels Viewed Christologically.
About The Unfolding Drama of Redemption
Culminating more than fifty years of comprehensive study, The Unfolding Drama of Redemption is the internationally-recognized masterpiece of scholarship. It is an excellent Bible survey in 3 volumes.
Scroggie teaches you to study the Bible synthetically (putting things together) and analytically (taking things apart). He shows you how to drill down to specifics in study and how to see the Bible as a whole, where the underlying theme of all Scripture is Redemption.
Scroggie uses this method in all of the works included in this bundle. All of these volumes are filled with hundreds of wonderful charts that make it easy to visualize the teachings and organization of Scripture. This is even more powerful in Wordsearch because these charts have many Scriptural references that are hyperlinks to Bible texts. Just mouse-over a link and the text will pop up for easy reference. Warren Wiersbe calls this work “indispensable.”

About the Author
William Graham Scroggie (1877-1958) was born in Great Malvern, England, and attended Spurgeon's Pastors' College. He was forced to leave his first two ministries due to his opposition to liberalism but drew large audiences at Charlotte Chapel, Edinburgh, with his scholarly yet practical exposition of the Scripture. In 1927 the University of Edinburgh conferred upon him the degree of doctor of divinity. His later years were spent in itinerant ministry throughout the English-speaking world along with an unprecedented twelve readings at the Keswick Convention. His final years were spent as lecturer in English Bible at the Pastors' College, London.
I value the books that Scroggie published. I use them often, and I recommend them.
Worth an entire shelf of books on the same subject.
The student of the Gospels should have it and study it.
