|BUY The Genesis Record (A Scientific and Devotional Commentary)
for $20.99 (List 29.99)
by Henry M. Morris
Hard Back, 716 pages
|This is a very conservative commentary. If you are looking for an adequate defense of the historical truth of Book of Genesis, and an analysis of the leading interpretations of each passage, this is an excellent guide. It is primarily a 'technical' commentary, in that it fully explains what the Bible says and means. Perhaps 10% of the commentary is devoted to life applications for today.

|This is excellent as both a technical and devotional commentary. Each volume covers 50 Psalms. I have used this set to prepare Adult Sunday School lessons on the Psalms. There are features of the Psalms such as Hebrew arrangements and poetic devices that show the logical structure and meaning, which we cannot know from the English alone. The author points these out, and after knowing them they become obvious even in English. I am buying a set for my Pastor, as he has borrowed these from me several times!!!

|I use this series for my own study when teaching a class on a book. Each volume is a comprehensive study of a Bible Book. They are good for both interpretation (what the Bible says) and application (how to do what the Bible says). These prices are a little less than the CBD prices.
|BUY Revelation (Bible Study Commentary)
by Alan F. Johnson (Wheaton College)
Soft Cover, 220 pages
|This is an exegetical commentary which interprets the book rather than apply it to our lives. It takes a futuristic view, that the events (after the opening seven letters to the churches) have not yet occurred. However, it does deal with the historical background of the first century and how those events relate to the future events being revealed. It is very matter of fact, it does not exaggerate or attempt to read modern day events into the book.
