What Is Repentance? A Moving Description by Charles Octavius Boothe

By repentance is meant a true godly sorrow for sin; that is, a sorrow which arises from the understanding that sin, in its worst forms, is an act of disobedience or of positive enmity to God, who demands our best obedience, and who is worthy to be loved by all men with all their heart and soul and might and mind and strength. But Paul says: [Read more…]

A Commentary for the Most Neglected Part of Your Sermon

Every preacher knows it’s easy to explain a text without moving into theological reflection. It’s even easier to stop short of application.

Yet no sermon is complete without it.

The Treasures of Scripture commentary series (65 vols.), currently half-off on Pre-Pub, is designed especially for this crucial part of the sermon.

A preacher’s commentary

The Treasures of Scripture is truly a preacher’s commentary. It contains:

  • Historical information
  • Alliterated outlines
  • Topical studies
  • Original language word studies
  • Sermon illustrations.

For example, here’s a potent illustration on fearing God, taken from the Job volume:

Charlemagne, it is said, gave instructions to be buried in the royal posture of a king upon his throne, with the Gospels opened on his knees, his sword beside him, and his crown upon his head. When his tomb was later uncovered, there he was. The crown was still perched on his skull, and a bony finger rested on these words: “What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”

What an image, and how easy it would be to launch from it into a charge to keep watch over our souls. Though Job had king-like wealth and stature, he feared God. Job, and apparently, Charlemagne, understood that the fear of God and the eternal destiny of our souls were more important than the praise of man or wealth of this world. Flesh may fail, but the word of the Lord stands forever.

The Treasures of Scripture is full of powerful illustrations, not to mention outlines, alliterative helps, and other commentary to aid in preparing for preaching.

What preachers say about it

The commentary is also edifying in its own right. Here is what some pastors and preachers say about it:

“This is excellent material. It is probably the most practical material for sermon preparation of anyone that I have read. I highly recommend it for pastors.”
— Roy Edgemon, former director of discipleship and family ministries, LifeWay Christian Resources

“The books are some of the best material I’ve read and studied. They fed me. It has been a joy and blessing to study these books.”
— Mike Oldham, pastor, Central Baptist Temple, Sanford, North Carolina

“I never thought the presentation of truth could be as practical, clear, timely, and satisfying. The books are like a prepared meal ready to eat.”
— David Tandoc, pastor, Dagapapn City, Philippines
