In thousands of Bible study classes across America, teachers, elders, and pastors use Cecil Sherman to help them teach essential passages in the Bible. Dr. Sherman served as the primary commentary writer for the Smyth and Helwys Formations series of adult Bible study for nearly fifteen years. In those years, he contributed to nearly 700 sessions across 45 issues of the commentary and addressed an extensive amount of Scripture.
Dr. Sherman’s commentaries provide a depth of biblical scholarship that he brings to life through rich storytelling based on a lifetime of experience and spiritual wisdom. He is able to communicate the gospel in a way that balances bold proclamation with good pastoral sense. By drawing the reader into a dialogue around a passage, Sherman is able to expound on what might otherwise seem complex and distant, helping the reader discover its richness.
His writing is clearly informed by careful research into biblical languages, backgrounds, theology, and archaeology. His love of the church is revealed through each commentary he writes, speaking to the real issues and challenges congregations face today.
Now, at long last, his commentaries are being made available once again. These five volumes collect the wisdom, insight, and wit that Sherman’s readers have come to treasure week after week through the years.
