Individual Titles

A Commentary on Genesis 1–11

  • Authors: Carl J. Lawrenz and John C. Jeske
  • Publisher: Northwestern Publishing House
  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 340

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

Carl Lawrenz and John Jeske present an argument that a key to correctly understanding Genesis is the historical nature of all 10 of Genesis’ accounts of God’s saving activity. Each author brings a scholar’s knowledge of biblical Hebrew, a high view of Scripture as the verbally inspired and inerrant written Word of God, and a keen understanding of God’s plan of salvation centered in Jesus Christ. This commentary contains the complete Hebrew text, the authors’ own original translations of the text, and a thorough exposition of every verse of Genesis chapters 1–11 using the historical-grammatical method of Scripture interpretation.

Carl J. Lawrenz is a professor at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary and contributor to the Wisconsin Lutheran Quarterly.

John Jeske (1924–2014) taught at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary while serving as a pastor in several churches during his lengthy career in ministry. He is the author of Treasures Old and New, and of commentaries on Genesis and Daniel in The People’s Bible Commentary.

A Commentary on Romans 1–8

  • Pages: 460

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

This verse-by-verse exegetical commentary on the Greek text of Romans chapters 1–8 demonstrates that Paul’s letter to the Romans deals with three basic truths of Christian faith: sin, acquittal, and thankful Christian living. The commentary begins with a brief discussion of the author, date, place, recipients, and purpose of the book of Romans. David Kuske shows how Paul addresses the failure of both Gentiles and Jews to live perfect lives as God’s law requires. He also examines Paul’s explanation of Christian life and sanctification, and his clear presentation of God’s grace to sinners. This commentary contains 27 charts and 57 Greek sentence diagrams from Paul’s letter. Learn more about Paul’s theology and argumentation with this commentary.
