These commentaries, like each in the series, are designed to serve the church---through aid in preaching, teaching, study groups, and so forth—and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.
“ Contemporary application of the Bible to life is the preacher’s business. But no worthy contemporary application is possible without a through understanding of the ancient text. The Brazos Theological Commentary exists to provide an accessible authority so that the preacher’s application will be a ready bandage for all the hurts of life. We who serve the pulpit want a commentary we can understand, and those who hear us expect us to give them a usable word. The Brazos Commentary is just the right level of light to make illuminating the word the joy it was meant to be.”- Calvin Miller, author of A Hunger for the Holy and Loving God Up Close.
