The Founders Study Guide Commentary is a study guide and commentary in one. Marrying solid exegesis with clear explanations and practical insights, this well-loved series is a trusty aid for pastors preparing sermons, leaders teaching a Bible study, or the layperson looking to delve into God's Word and apply it to everyday life.
Clear & Understandable
Each volume starts with an introduction that includes background on the Bible book, authorship, important themes, and an outline of the entire book. It then breaks the Scripture text into sections and clearly explains each verse. The commentary text is well-written and helpful to understanding the meaning of the Bible book. At the end of each book, a section called "For Further Study" includes thoughtful exercises that could lead to sermons or lessons.
This concise and informative series covers the books of Acts, 1 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Colossians & Philemon, James, and 1, 2, 3 John.
Originally published in 1983, Founders Press has brought the Founders Study Guide Commentary back into print to make it available to the current generation of church leaders.
