IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Acts

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Acts

by William J. Larkin, Jr.

Following the ascension of Jesus, the strife-torn, ethnically diverse backwater of the Roman Empire known as Palestine was a hostile environment for the gospel. Despite that, the gospel flourished -- from Jerusalem to Judea, Samaria, and the rest of the known world. In Acts, the sequel to his Gospel, Luke describes how the Holy Spirit tran… Read more…

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Romans

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Romans

by Grant R. Osborne

Not many books of the Bible have so impacted the movement of church history like Paul’s epistle to the Romans. Think of Augustine’s heart-rending conversion in the fourth century, or Martin Luther’s monumental rediscovery of justification by faith in the 16th. Think of John Wesley’s conversion and how it influenced the church to re… Read more…

Preaching the Word - Luke Volume 2

Preaching the Word - Luke Volume 2

by R. Kent Hughes

Luke's carefully researched and orderly account of the life of Christ is one of the finest pieces of historical writing in all of ancient literature. Yet it also accomplishes its divinely appointed purpose: that people of every century "may know the truth." The breadth of Luke's Gospel–with entire sections that are record… Read more…

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 1 Corinthians

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 1 Corinthians

by Alan F. Johnson

The church of Corinth and the issues it faced are quite similar to those of today’s churches. We face ethnic, religious, economic, and social barriers. Churches split over matters of authority, sexual practice, gender, marriage, and divorce. Paul wrote his letter to the Corinthians to give them practical solutions to these problems. In… Read more…

Preaching the Word - John

Preaching the Word - John

by R. Kent Hughes

While each of the Gospels presents Christ with a distinct emphasis, the Gospel of John focuses on His greatness. As the timeless Creator-God of the universe. As the Word made flesh. As the gracious Lover of our souls who is the only Way to the Father. Instead of detailing the facts and events of His earthly life, as the other Gospel writer… Read more…

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 2 Corinthians

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 2 Corinthians

by Linda L. Belleville

When Paul wrote his second letter to the church in Corinth, he was addressing some of the same materialistic issues and tendencies towards decadence that assail churches today. Paul’s tactics and time-proven ministerial insights are still relevant ways of addressing these very problems. In this thorough commentary of 2 Corinthians,Linda … Read more…

Preaching the Word - Acts

Preaching the Word - Acts

by R. Kent Hughes

Dynamic churches–congregations that are experiencing phenomenal growth, Christian ministries that God is using to take down walls, churches where souls are being saved and lives transformed–inspire us and make for great reading. The book of Acts, the divinely inspired history of the early church, is all this and more. In the author'… Read more…

Preaching the Word - Romans

Preaching the Word - Romans

by R. Kent Hughes

Few Christians would dispute that the book of Romans is one of the most powerful and influential books ever written. After all, Paul’s epistle has been the written force behind some of the most significant conversions of church history: St. Augustine was convicted of his sin after reading some verses from the thirteenth chapter; Martin Luther recovered th… Read more…

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Galatians

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 evangelis… 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… Read more…

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Ephesians

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Ephesians

by Walter L. Liefeld

For readers who both yearn to know God more deeply and desire to know their purpose before God, Ephesians offers an overarching picture of God’s intention for His church, with Jesus Christ at the center. Paul starts out with a beautiful doxology and then exhorts the church to prove its vocal praise with action. Paul’s letter to the church in Ephesus rema… Read more…

Preaching the Word - Ephesians

Preaching the Word - Ephesians

by R. Kent Hughes

The Apostle Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians is one of the most dynamic portions of all of Scripture.

With its dual focus on Christ and the Church, as well as its careful presentation of doctrine and duty, Ephesians points the way … 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 “partners… Read more…

Preaching the Word - Philippians

Preaching the Word - Philippians

by R. Kent Hughes

The four chapters of Philippians contain some of the most-quoted and beloved passages in Scripture: "For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain," "Rejoice in the Lord always," "Do not be anxious about anything," "I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content."

Preaching the Word - Colossians and Philemon

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. &… 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 expla… Read more…

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 1-2 Timothy & Titus

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Hebrews

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Hebrews

by Ray C. Stedman

The letter to the Hebrews is one of the longest, most striking arguments for the singularity and sovereignty of Christ in the New Testament.

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 2 Peter & Jude

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 2 Peter & Jude

by Phillip H. Towner

In Simon Peter’s eyes, the mercy of forgiveness is, perhaps, matched only by the awe of experiencing trust after his threefold denial. That redemptive event in Peter’s life fueled profound letters—letters of caution and hope, grave counsel, and unimaginable promise. Jude is too often ignored because of its short length and forceful … Read more…

Preaching the Word - 1&2 Peter and Jude

Preaching the Word - 1&2 Peter and Jude

by David R. Helm

Neither Peter nor Jude minced words about the realities that would confront every Christian and that were confronting the church at large-suffering and persecution, contradictory views of the gospel, constant challenges to the faith at the hands of false teachers. Yet even in the face of these harsh realities, both biblical writers unswervingly declared that… Read more…
