The Opening the Scriptures series provides everyday church members with accessible primers, helping them grasp the primary themes and messages of biblical books. Neither dry, technical commentaries nor simply repackaged sermons, these are clear, vivid portrayals of God’s truth and its application to the Christian life.

The series follows the four main sectional divisions of Scripture: the Torah, the prophetic books, the Psalms and wisdom books, and the New Testament. The authors of Opening the Scriptures show that the Bible is the book of God’s covenant with his people.

This upgrade features commentaries on Psalms and Matthew from Frans Van Deursen and Cornelius Vonk—two Dutch Reformed pastors who combined clear exposition of the Scripture with straight-forward, spiritual application.

In the Logos editions, these volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Be sure to pick up the other volumes in the Opening the Scriptures commentary series.

Praise for the Print Edition

Opening the Scriptures is a series that draws on the rich redemptive-historical tradition with roots in the Netherlands, and will fill a real need and be of great benefit to the non-educated and educated alike.

Michael Goheen, Jake and Betsy Tuls Chair of Missiology, Calvin Theological Seminary

The series is written with the people of God in mind rather than the scholars. Pastors will do well to read it, because it will help them engage with God's Word as well as with God's people. I heartily endorse the series.

Willem A. VanGemeren, professor of Old Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
