From the Publisher
A Bible commentary that engages both heart and mind.
The Peoples Bible Commentary (PBC) series is designed for all those who want to study the Scriptures in a way that will warm the heart as well as instructing the mind. The series distils the best of scholarly insights into the straightforward language and devotional emphasis of Bible reading notes. Explanation of background material, and discussion of the original Greek and Hebrew always aims to be brief.
For those who have never really studied the Bible before, the series offers a serious, yet accessible, way in. And, as it is designed for using alongside any version of the Bible, its overall approach offers invaluable snapshots of a passage for those helping to lead church study groups or otherwise involved in regular preaching and teaching. A Notes section at the back of each PBC volume provides space to write personal reflections, points to follow up, questions and comments.
