While reading the Bible, we are often urged to go deeper, to learn more about a certain passage, or to explore the origins of how the Bible came to be. Maybe we are looking to grow in community through Scripture and are looking for resources for a group. Whether you are looking for a commentary, Bible study, or other resource that will help expand your understanding of the Bible, Tyndale has some great options.
Below are just a few ideas to help you learn more about Scripture, Bible translation, and how to better understand the depth of God’s Word.
More than a typical Bible study, these volumes offer a devotional commentary that is more text focused and rigorous than most devotionals but is more accessible and application oriented than a commentary. The result is a Bible study that connects head and heart.
These studies provide an informed, responsible exegesis of the text presented in an accessible and concise format. But these studies will take you way beyond intellectual knowledge. You’ll find theological implications and personal applications drawn from the text in a way that goes beyond traditional commentaries. Every lesson will draw attention to what each passage teaches concerning God’s character. The result is experiential knowledge.
