When & Why to Use the Moody Bible Commentary

A soldier’s backpack contains everything needed for survival on the battlefield. In cold climates, it may contain a blanket, extra socks, and a fire kit with a fire starter. In hot weather, the backpack might have sunglasses and sunscreen. 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.

In the same way, pastors and teachers need a toolkit of diverse resources that will help them tackle any challenge their study throws their way. Commentary sets work slowly and methodically through the biblical text to help you dig into details. Dictionaries provided in-depth information on various subjects in the Bible, including people, places, and concepts. But working through these types of tools takes time, and not everyone has 20 to 30 hours to spend in study before Sunday comes around again.

The Moody Bible Commentary is perfect for those times when you need to quickly grasp the meaning of a biblical text without resorting to searching through multiple commentary sets and dictionaries. Containing maps, historical background, and commentary in one volume, The Moody Bible Commentary is an all-in-one Bible study resource that is concise, comprehensive, and reliably evangelical.

The intuitive layout makes it easy to find comments on the passage you’re studying. Quickly scan the biblical text: it’s set off in  bold print for easy reference, and there are plenty of visual aids for learning. Additional study helps include bibliographies for further reading and a subject and Scripture index.

General editors Michael Rydelnik and Michael Vanlaningham have led a team of contributors whose academic training, practical church experience, and teaching competency make this commentary excellent for anyone who needs help understanding the Scriptures. A team of 30 Moody Bible Institute professors help you study the Bible—all in one, handy work.

Now available on Pre-Pub for a reduced price, The Moody Bible Commentary is a great addition to anyone wanting to get more from their Bible study.

  • I purchased this the first time it came available. I am one of your most positive supporters, and voiced my complaint about this commentary. It does not come up in the passage guide. It is not indexed, so usually does not come to mind, unless I think of it it during a study as a second thought. Come on guys!!! Enough of the selling, get it indexed and make it more important to show up in my commentary listings in a passage report.

  • Have the Vyrso edition of this and am EAGERLY awaiting the reworked Logos edition!!
