If I could have only one commentary on the Bible, this would be it!

Normally commentaries that cover the whole bible jump over the questions you really want answerd. McDonald deals with them head on, giving the different points of view that pertain to the problem and then which one he would hold and why.

Clearly in a book that covers the whole bible it will not give in-depth discussion but great to give a good overview of each book and, as aready stated, written in clear English. There is a little more depth in the New Testament than the Old, but the book is to highly recommended to anyone who wants to have a foundational knowledge as to what the bible is about and how it all works together. The commentary is best read in conjunction with the bible and not on its own.

McDonald spent a lifetime of study in the Scriptures and his stance is what would be called "Conservative Evangelical". It is soundly scriptural and one would be hard pressed to challenge it

...Firstly I think it is excellent and would Highly reccomend it.One of the reasons is the simple to understand language. I started reading in the book of Romans and found it extremely beneficial. In an easy to understand manner the author brings to life the meaning of the scriptures. He does not neglect to give various view points aswell as His own. Reading Romans I found myself being Drawn to God and am excited at what God will show me through this book. The author in His commentary advocates devotion and obedience to God from a position of total security for the true believer...

This Bible commentary is a must have in the library of anyone wanting to better understand Gods' word. It is written in straight forward language, referring to sound translations and confronts issues to answer many a question that a bible study student might have. Highly recommended.

I have been reading this bible since I came back to the Lord after 35 years backslidden. The Message content makes understanding the Lord's Word so much easier and is superb for new christians particularly. I not only read it myself but have bought it for friends and recommended to many people.

this is the best commentary i own. i have it in hardback and the kindle version. great commentary really easy to understand. really opens up the bible this is the one out of many commentaries that i keep coming back to again and again. i don't necessarily agree with everything in it but then again the only book thats true from start to finish is GODS WORD the bible. thanks for a great book that helps me to understand GODS WORD 5stars all the way

Asked for as a Christmas Present by my youngest twin Daughter (40 plus - a few minutes younger than her sister! ). This was intended as an aid for an examination preparation)

This far from easy to find book was ultimately found via Amazon - quickly delivered and received top marks from my Daughter.
