Bible commentaries often focus on one type of learner or the other. Pastoral commentaries provide just a brief overview of the background of the biblical text, focusing instead on practical application. Scholarly commentaries, on the other hand, dive deep into exegetical and linguistic matters, offering historical and critical observations along the way. Both have their advantages, but what if you want the best of both worlds?

The things a soldier carries can mean the difference between life and death in dire situations—no matter what environment they may find themselves in.

His readings at the university in rationalist philosophy and theology had led him to doubt his faith in the Christian doctrine taught since his childhood. Writing to his father, the young man confesses to him, “I cannot believe that he who called himself the Son of Man was the true, eternal God; I cannot believe that his death was a vicarious atonement.”

Reformed theology has always had a vibrant community of theologians. John Calvin arguably wrote the first systematic theology with his Institutes of the Christian Religion. Since Calvin’s day, luminaries like John Owen, Charles Hodge, and Louis Berkhof have articulated distinctly Reformed points of view in their now-classic systematic theologies.
In the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, popular pastors and writers such as R.C. Sproul and J.I. Packer brought Calvinism into the mainstream, compelling Time magazine to call New Calvinism one of the “ten ideas changing the world right now.”
