Overview

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.

Leading biblical scholars Tremper Longman III and Scot McKnight serve as general editors for The Story of God Bible Commentary series. Together, they have sought authors for the 43 volumes who are exceptional scholars, faithful Christians, committed evangelicals, and theologically diverse. This collection of writers represents the changing face of both American and world evangelicalism. Volumes in this series continue to be produced, with plans to eventually include commentaries on all 66 books of the Bible in the planned volumes.

  • 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
Getting a story is about more than merely enjoying it. It means hearing it, understanding it, and above all, being impacted by it. This commentary series hopes that its readers not only hear and understand the story, but are impacted by it to live in as Christian a way as possible. The editors and contributors set that table very well and open up the biblical story in ways that move us to act with sensitivity and understanding. That makes hearing the story as these authors tell it well worth the time. Well done.

I love the Story of God Bible Commentary series. It makes the text sing, and helps us hear the story afresh.

John Ortberg

The Bible is the story of God and his dealings with humanity from creation to new creation. The Bible is made up more of stories than of any other literary genre. Even the psalms, proverbs, prophecies, letters, and the Apocalypse make complete sense only when set in the context of the grand narrative of the entire Bible. This commentary series breaks new ground by taking all these observations seriously. It asks commentators to listen to the text, to explain the text, and to live the text. Some of the material in these sections overlaps with introduction, detailed textual analysis and application, respectively, but only some. The most riveting and valuable part of the commentaries are the stories that can appear in any of these sections, from any part of the globe and any part of church history, illustrating the text in any of these areas. Ideal for preaching and teaching.
