The radio broadcasts of the Thru the Bible Radio five-year program were transcribed, edited, and published first in single-volume paperbacks to accommodate the radio audience. From the beginning there was a demand that they be published in a more permanent form and in fewer volumes. This unabridged, five-volume edition offers McGee's clear language and lively approach which makes biblical truth easy to comprehend. Pastors and teachers find that his helpful comments and vivid illustrations streamline the tasks of sermon and lesson preparation. This favorite commentary series provides book introductions, outlines, and careful chapter-by-chapter analysis along with informal discussion of the most significant verses.
