Are you looking for a great commentary that is easy to understand and also sheds new light on the scripture as well as give you background information on the text that you are reading???? If so then you should try John Phillips Commentary Series. I had to buy them for some Bible classes that I was taking in college and love to read about the text that I am going to preach on. These have been very helpful to me. I have even asked for them on my birthday so that I may complete the whole set. If you are interested in these you can find them on Amazon.com and not have to pay the full price that you would pay in a bookstore. I love them and have learned to put some interesting information into my sermons by reading his thoughts and his research on the topic. Hope all this is as profitable to you as it is to me!!!
