Kerux Commentaries enable pastors and teachers to understand and effectively present the message of a biblical text. Kerux opens up each text of the Bible by explaining the message of the text to the original audience, unpacking the timeless truth of the passage, and finally providing communication insights for conveying that truth to a contemporary audience.
Each volume is written by a biblical scholar and a working pastor or homiletics scholar in partnership. Inclusion of a preaching author means that the commentary is centered on the biblical insights that are useful to a pastor as well as effective communication strategies and illustrations for each passage. Readers will discern the benefits of this throughout, as a resource designed and written with the real needs of regular proclamation always in sight.
Kerux strengthens a speaker’s clear and focused presentation of a text, as the included biblical insights are crafted to support the main argument of the passage, without too much extraneous information. It enhances the pastor’s ability to deliver a sermon that is biblical, cohesive, and dynamic by keeping the length of commentary manageable, while also offering effective, creative strategies for delivering the message of the text.
The digital extras provide an additional layer of technical commentary alongside the exegetical and homiletical commentary. This adds further engagement with the biblical languages, passage structure, historical backgrounds, and other commentators. These notes are exclusive to the digital versions of the Kerux commentaries to provide the reader with everything needed for a deep understanding of each passage for preparing a sermon, study, or lecture.
