God’s Word For You wants to help you read, feed, and lead. Not just a commentary, the 16 complete volumes are expository guides through Scripture, verse by verse.
A flexible resource, God’s Word For You can be used in preparing sermons or lessons, read simply as a book that will teach you, encourage you, and challenge you, or as a daily devotional, complete with reflection questions. Difficult verses or concepts are explained in user-friendly language, and helpful themes and illustrations are included, along with suggested applications.
The central aim of each title is to be Bible-centered, Christ-glorifying, relevantly applied, and easily read. Authors like Timothy Keller, R. Albert Mohler, David Helm, and Tim Chester take you through each book in an accessible and practical way, always pointing to God. You’ll get straight to the meaning of the passage and be able to share what you’ve learned when teaching others.
Currently, the series has completed volumes on Exodus, Judges, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, Daniel, Luke 1-12, Luke 12-24, John 1-12, Romans 1-7, Romans 8-16, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Titus, James, and 1 Peter. (With more volumes planned.) Whoever you are, and however you use it, this series is for you.
A must read! I've been a Christian a long time, but these books were completely mind blowing. Paul goes through so many basic parts of Christianity that it can be easy to forget. Tim Keller puts it in a really simple explanation, even when dealing with tricky biblical doctrines. A must read for young and old Christians!
Soundly doctrinal, eminently practical, and beautifully devotional, this just might be the most accessible yet serious commentary on James available. I don't like to admit this, but I find many biblical commentaries tedious and boring—but there's nothing dry or abstract about James For You. Whether you're planning to preach or teach James or to listen to these ancient words to redirect your own life, Sam Allberry is a wise and faithful guide.
Expositions that simultaneously expound a biblical text accurately and apply it to the target audience tellingly are rare. This is one of the rare ones. It is all the more important because through it Peter speaks to the Western church in the twenty-first century: God is preparing his people for the privilege of suffering service in the light of the grace that has been revealed in Christ Jesus and of the glory that is yet to come.
