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.
