Overview

Wendy L. Widder provides pastors, students, Sunday school teachers, and lay people a clear and compelling exposition of the text in the context of the Bible’s overarching story—God’s story. In Daniel , Widder moves away from “application” language, which has been criticized as being too simplistic, instead encouraging discussion of how Daniel and the Bible can be lived today.

  • Emphasizes the historical distance between the Bible and contemporary culture
  • Encourages discussion of how the Bible’s story can be lived today
  • Examines each book in the context of God’s story

Offering a new type of application commentary for today’s context, the Story of God Bible Commentary series explains and illuminates Scripture as God’s story. Each biblical text is treated as though it were embedded in its canonical and historical setting to discern how to live out the story faithfully and creatively in the twenty-first century.

The authors of this series study and probe the Bible as God’s story, to discern and then articulate how we can live the Bible’s story faithfully and creatively in the culture today. This series offers vital tools for you to understand the original context of biblical passages; to carry insights from the biblical world and ancient Near Eastern literature straight into your context today; and finally, to empower you to discern and communicate biblical insight to your small group or congregation.

You’ll experience the uniqueness of The Story of God Bible Commentary as it helps you read the Bible in light of Christ’s incarnation, encounter theology of the great traditions of the church, and engage with faithful and insightful voices of the global church.

Each commentary is broken into three sections:

  • Listen to the Story presents the Bible passage in the New International Version (NIV)
  • Interpret the Story examines the passage for its essential message and meaning
  • Live the Story explores how we can live this text in the world today. It offers insightful reflections, illustrations, and practical suggestions for daily Christian life and practice
