The Grace New Testament Commentary (2 vols.) was written over the course of twenty years by fourteen men who have devoted their lives to studying and teaching the Word of God. They fulfilled the aim of their work: to aid the Body of Christ by providing it with a readable, enlightening, and challenging commentary on the New Testament. There has long been a need for a commentary on the New Testament from a Free Grace perspective that explains this text. The Grace New Testament Commentary (2 vols.) provides explanation of all of the difficult New Testament passages, including the ones that seem to deny eternal security, ones that seem to contradict justification by faith alone, and ones that seem to condition kingdom entrance upon perseverance.
An excellent resource for pastors, teachers, professors, students, and laity, this commentary provides a great backdrop for New Testament Studies. The authors included in this set are: J. B. Bond, Gary Derickson, Brad Doskocil, Hal M. Haller, Zane Hodges, Dwight L. Hunt, Shawn R. Leach, Rene A. Lopez, Barry Mershon, Gregory P. Sapaugh, J. Paul Tanner, Robert Vacendak, Alberto S. Valdes, and Robert N. Wilkin. Each New Testament book of the Bible is introduced with an outline, themes, background information, and historical context. Then, launching into commentary, the authors divide the biblical text into small chunks of Scripture, analyzing the Scriptures verse-by-verse. With the Logos edition of The Grace New Testament Commentary (2 Vols.), you can link the commentaries to your preferred Bibles, and running the Passage Guide will pull these volumes up in search results.
This commentary does not stray away from the basic truth of salvation when explaining some of the more difficult passages that seem, when taken at face value and often out of context, to advocate a message contrary to faith alone in Christ alone for salvation, namely passages suggesting good works are required for salvation or other adding additional conditions for salvation beyond faith (i.e. Matthew 7:15-23, 10:32-33, Acts 2:38, Romans 10:9-10, 1 Corinthians 6:9, Galatians 5:4,19, Hebrews 6:4-6, 10:26-29, James 2:14-26, 2 Peter 2:20-21, 1 John 3:6,9-10). Each of these passages has a reasonable explanation when explained in context and that remains true to the gospel message of grace through faith in Christ for eternal life. You will be blessed by having this commentary and understanding more fully the amazing grace of God!
