This is a great tool. It provides short but rich comments on each book of the Bible as well as a concise discussion on many important topics a contemporary reader of the Scriptures may wonder about.

Meego Remmel

In order to preach we first need to understand the word of God and relevantly apply it in our own context. This is exactly what this unique commentary intends: help the reader not only to understand the meaning of the Bible but also build a bridge to today’s culture.
