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 New Testament 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. A highly-anticipated commentary series, The Story of God Bible Commentary will cover both the Old and New Testaments in 43 volumes.

In the Logos editions, these volumes are enhanced by valuable functionality and features. Scripture links directly to English translations and original-language texts, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches with the Topic Guide to instantly gather relevant biblical texts and resources, enabling you to jump into the conversation with the foremost scholars on the sermon on the mount and Philippians. Tablet and mobile apps let you take the discussion with you. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
