The Opening Up Commentary series offers accessible and easy-to-read introductions. The commentaries tackle the key issues in each book by introducing the history and context and by giving an overview of important themes and events. The authors wrestle with the hard questions and navigate through the difficult issues with a keen eye toward application and relevance for today.
Each book in the Opening Up Commentary series is well-organized, clearly and concisely written, and includes discussion questions for further reflection and study. This collection is ideal for readers seeking in-depth study and for those encountering the bible for the first time. The study guides make these the perfect commentaries for church and bible study groups looking to take their bible reading to the next level. This commentary is a valuable addition to the libraries of pastors, scholars, and students of the bible.
I continue to be thankful for the publications of Day One. They are biblical; they have sound theology; and they are relative to the issues at hand. The material is condensed and manageable while, at the same time, being complete—challenging balance to find. We are happy in our ministry to make use of these excellent publications.
—John MacArthur, pastor-teacher, Grace Community Church, CA
