Serious students of Scripture can easily lose their focus among the many Bible commentaries available today, studying for hours yet discovering no meaningful application of God's eternal truth. This one-volume commentary on the entire Bible from one of America's foremost Bible expositors offers instead a minilibrary of understandable resources designed to convey the Bible's overarching message with historical and theological clarity.
John MacArthur, longtime pastor, preacher, and host of the Grace to You teaching broadcast, covers the complete Bible—every passage of the Old and New Testaments, phrase by phrase—in this valuable one-volume resource. Hundreds of additional study tools complement the commentary, such asWord studiesCharts, graphs, and brief articlesOverviews of each major division of the BibleIntroductions to each biblical bookA summary of essential Christian theologySpecial sections on Jesus's life and ministryHarmonies of historical writingsGuidance in studying, applying, and teaching God's Word
Readers benefit from the coherence a single commentator provides, finding faithful, understandable, and relevant resources for any passage from the entire Bible. Consistent elements include exploring God's character; seeing Christ in all Scripture; and identifying key doctrines, vital people, and touchstone Scripture passages. The MacArthur Bible Commentary offers pastors, Bible teachers, serious Bible readers, and anyone seeking to read and understand the Scriptures a way to focus their studies while still seeing the entire Bible's application to the Christian life.
Now as never before, studying God's Word can become a fresh, inviting, enriching experience for every reader.
