Overview

Robert Mounce has written some of the most trusted commentaries for pastors and scholars and participated in the translataion of celebrated Bibles including the NIV, NLT, and ESV. This selection of some of his best works combines his world-class scholarship with down-to-earth application—perfect for any Christian who wants to apply the truth of Scripture to everyday life.

In The Essential Nature of New Testament Preaching, Mounce upholds the importance of preaching, arguing that it has been and always will be God’s primary means of bringing the gospel to the world. In So They Say, he confronts the postmodern worldview by liberally quoting some of its most noteworthy proponents and referencing the insights of some of history’s greatest minds. His profound reflections—informed by decades of life and ministry experience—demonstrate the explanatory power of the Christian message.

This collection also includes four of Mounce’s popular-level New Testament commentaries. He analyzes 1 and 2 Timothy, 1 and 2 Peter, Romans, and Revelation in-depth—without getting bogged down in exegetical minutia. By bridging the cultural divide between the original readers and the modern Christian, Mounce unveils the profound relevance of the Bible for today.

According to Robert Mounce, the preacher occupies a position of unrivaled significance in the life and destiny of his fellow human beings. As A.M. Hunter says in the forward, “the preached gospel which the first heralds of Christ proclaimed to the great pagan world of their day . . . runs, like a golden thread, through the whole New Testament.”

Mounce introduces his study with a survey of related terms as they appear in classical Greek, then shows the role of the herald in the life and culture of the Old Testament through a careful investigation of the Septuagint. He analyzes the nature of preaching in the New Testament and demonstrates that true Christian preaching has always been God’s means of offering grace to humanity.

Sound scholarship, fresh treatment, and evangelical warmth.

A Living Hope: A Commentary on 1 and 2 Peter

  • Author: Robert H. Mounce
  • Publisher: Wipf & Stock
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 166

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Robert Mounce demonstrates his scholarship, lucidity, and pastoral heart in this commentary. Pastors and laypersons will find a balanced, effective, and relevant interpretation of Peter’s epistles.

Mounce says that the letters’ theme is hope, but the main purpose is “to encourage believers in Asia Minor to expect and endure hardship as a result of their commitment to the Christian faith” and “to stimulate them to wholesome thinking” to counteract false teachers who had risen within the church.

Although the letters are packed with imperatives, Mounce argues that they do not merely offer simple “lessons for living,” but move freely from doctrine to duty and back again. Thus, the purpose of doctrine is less to instruct than to provide the theological basis for a new way of living. Because Christians have been born anew to a living hope, there is a serious challenge to holy living. Mounce applies these challenges to modern life with chapters such as “How to Get Along With Your Spouse,” “Living in an Alien Society,” and “How to Live in the Family of God.”

Robert Mounce’s expositions are so clear, concise, devout, and thoughtful that they [should be] within the reach of every Bible student.

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In this commentary on Romans, Robert Mounce addresses the human inclination for trying to attain righteousness by works. Along the way, he answers Christians’ most pressing questions. What happens when humans turn their back on God? Does God make humans righteous? Does justification by faith sanction sin? Is Christianity practical? Mounce’s thorough, readable scholarship is free of professional jargon, making clear, present-day applications of Paul’s message.

What Are We Waiting for? A Commentary on Revelation

  • Author: Robert H. Mounce

  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 152

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In the modern world of straight-forward, prosaic writing, we don’t know what to make of the book of Revelation with its dream-visions and elevated rhetoric. Nevertheless, when John wrote his apocalypse and sent it to the seven churches in Asia, he didn’t just expect it to be read—he expected it to be understood!

Robert Mounce walks readers through this often misunderstood book, drawing out contemporary application and providing a simple and clear eschatological scheme any reader can understand.

Solid scholarship, sensitive teaching, deep faith—these outstanding qualities of Robert Mounce’s ministry are combined in What Are We Waiting For.
