The Opening Up Series was designed to get you and those you teach to open up the Bible.
Written by pastors and those who work in ministry, each volume provides the wisdom of years of experience—and doesn’t shy away from the hard topics. Each of the 46 volumes covers a book of the Bible and has a simple, easy-to-read style to keep you focused and open to learning and reflecting.
Easy to Use and Organized
The volumes start with an overview of the Bible book, including maps and timelines, the structure of the book, and main themes. Each commentary then moves passage-by-passage explaining important verses and what they mean to us today. The end of each section includes verses elsewhere in the Bible for further study, along with questions to think about and discuss. These excellent, thought-provoking questions will facilitate small group discussion or personal reflection that will deepen your understanding of the Bible.
Faithful, Relevant, and Excellent
Providing doctrinal truth and true-to-Scripture exegesis, the Opening Up Series is perfect for anyone who loves to study God’s Word and talk about it. The discussion questions can lead you to a great sermon or lesson idea, and in Wordsearch, you can save all your thoughts alongside the commentary as you go in the Word Processor or NoteStack.
