Helpful Bible Resources part 1

October 21st, 2011

Hi all, in the next few posts I thought I would share three really helpful Bible resources I use when preparing sermons, Bible studies or blog posts. The first one is the IVP New Bible Commentary. Here is some information about it…

“For fifty years the New Bible Commentary has served Bible readers worldwide. This 21st Century Edition builds on the strengths of the previous three:

  • a one-volume commentary on the whole Bible by an international team of contributors
  • general articles on what the Bible is and how to read it
  • an introduction to each Bible book
  • commentaries dividing each book into sections for ease of reference

Designed to meet the needs of today, the New Bible Commentary is based on the simplicity and clarity of the NIV text, and makes use of recent international scholarship: 80% of the articles are entirely new and the rest have been rewritten. New maps, diagrams, charts and tables illuminate the text, and further reading lists are included with each article.”

I have found this a really useful resource over the years. It has really helped me with my Bible College studies, preparing sermons and Bible studies.

If you are interested you can purchase on at Koorong or Word Bookstores for around $40-45. It is well worth it.

God Bless,

Dave
