IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Galatians

by G. Walter Hansen

Walter Hansen begins his commentary with this piercing counsel: "Wherever ethnic rivalries are destroying societies, the book of Galatians calls Christians to express the truth of the gospel in communities where there are no ethnic or social or gender divisions.” With billions of people in need of hearing the gospel, this cuts to the heart of evangelistic … Read more…

Preaching the Word - 2 Corinthians

Preaching the Word - 2 Corinthians

by R. Kent Hughes

During Paul’s ministry, Corinth was a newly rebuilt, bustling, important city in the Roman Empire. It was a place full of pride, individualism, wealth, and religious pluralism. No wonder its inhabitants held little regard for Paul’s message! Sound familiar? Our contemporary culture has much in common with ancient Corinth. The relevance of this book to… Read more…

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Philippians

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Philippians

by Gordon D. Fee

Nothing hinders a church’s witness—and its day-to-day existence—like conflict from within. Paul, in his letter to the church in Philippi, responded to a church body whose personal battles were worsened by outside hostility and adversity. Paul thus chose to reinforce friendship and morality in his letter, along with their “partnership in the gospe… Read more…

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 1-2 Thessalonians

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 1-2 Thessalonians

by G. K. Beale

The end times (eschatology) intrigued the early church as much as it does today’s church. The new church at Thessalonica, which Paul planted during his short time there, also wondered when the end might be. Paul composed two letters for them, so that they might have a fuller knowledge of the “last things.” Taken in tandem, they explain the “alread… Read more…

Preaching the Word - Colossians and Philemon

by R. Kent Hughes

In our day of massive religious confusion, the message of Colossians is among the most timely of all the New Testament books. Today many seek to exclude belief in God from every corner of modern life. Others flaunt "New Age" ideas about God and Christ which collide with the Scriptures. Confusion reigns and many are in need of knowing the Truth. Christians… Read more…
