William MacDonald – Believers Bible Commentary

WilliamMacDonaldBelieversBibleCommentary.jpgI find bible commentaries are very helpful when studying the bible.
Naturally a good ‘study’ bible helps, but they’re a little bit different. A study bible is basically a bible with footnotes, endnotes, and references.
However a bible commentary generally covers nearly every verse in the bible. They might skip a few verses in spots, but generally they do a good job in covering the entire bible.
Some bible commentaries are one volume; others can be quite a few volumes. There are many 12-14 volume collections available. To a certain degree my Preacher’s Outline and Study Bible is a combination bible, study bible, and bible commentary all rolled into one.
To the left is William MacDonald one volume “Believer’s Bible Commentary”. It is over 2,400 pages with nice crisp text.
Here’s a blurb:
Written to give “the average Christian reader a basic knowledge of what the Holy Bible is all about,” the Believer’s Bible Commentary is a one-volume commentary on the entire Bible based on the New King James Version (NKJV). Author William MacDonald has compiled an insightful and applicable commentary, with introductions, notes, and bibliographies for each book of the Bible. This commentary is both a verse-by-verse exposition (in the New Testament, Psalms, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes) and a paragraph-by-paragraph exposition (all other Old Testament books). Passages in the Old Testament which point toward Christ are given special attention.
