In this second volume of Dr. He had a remarkable gift for turning biblical phrases into memorable English. But even the Authorized Version was not the first authorized English translation of the Bible. Henry wanted this Bible read in all the Anglican churches, and Miles Coverdale produced the translation. For this and various reasons, many of the budding Protestant movements on the Continent and in Great Britain were not happy with the Great Bible.
The Geneva Bible had more vivid and vigorous language and became quickly more popular than the Great Bible. The Geneva Bible was popular not only because it was mass produced for the general public but also because it had annotations, study guides, cross-references with relevant verses elsewhere in the Bible, and introductions to each book summarizing content, maps, tables, illustrations, and even indices.
In short, it was the first study Bible in English, and again note, it preceded the KJV by a half-century. Notably, the Geneva Bible was the first to produce an English Old Testament translation entirely from the Hebrew text. Like its predecessors, it included the Apocrypha. In short, none of the major Bible translations that emerged during the German, Swiss, or English reformations produced a Bible of simply 66 books.
Stories and Subjects in the Books of the Bible
It is true that beyond the 66 books the other 7 or more were viewed as deuterocanonical, hence the term apocrypha, but nonetheless, they were still seen as having some authority. So when and where does the Protestant Bible of 66 books show up? Protestants had long treated the extra books as, at best, deuterocanonical. Some had even called them non-canonical, and there were some precedents for printing a Bible without these books. The and printings of the Geneva Bible left them out as well. But in any event, these books had not been treated as canonical by many Protestants.
No, the biggest rock he threw into the ecclesiastical pond, which produced not only the most ripples but real waves, was his production of the Luther Bible. But he was not a lone pioneer. He and William Tyndale deserve equal billing as the real pioneers of producing translations of the Bible from the original languages into the language of ordinary people, so they might read it, study it, learn it, and be moved and shaped by it.
The Bible of the people, by the people, and especially for the people did not really exist before Luther and Tyndale. Today, to speak just of English, there are more than translations or paraphrases of the New Testament in whole or in part into our language.
Each of these two books ends with their own doxology. This collection of Psalms is ancient—at least as old as the second or third century BC This volume also contains an appendix, giving a suggested chronological order for the Psalms. All of which makes this a fascinating book to seek guidance from, with the experienced help of Eric Lane.
No book of the Bible gives Christians more practical advice than Proverbs.
The revolutionary method employed in this commentary combines two different approaches. Firstly, the verse-by-verse approach and secondly, the thematic style. Eric Lane shows his long investigation into the text by giving a comprehensive thematic index of topics covered. This means that whilst every verse is covered, each chapter is arranged topically, making it more reader-friendly.
Eric Lane succeeds brilliantly in bringing us a study of Proverbs that can be used as a devotional aid or Bible study companion.
God Answers Samuel’s Prayer
He reveals Proverbs as something more than a disconnected collection of inspired sayings! Originally these scrolls were read in connection with the different feasts and fasts of the Jews, in the case of the Song of Songs, it was read at Passover time. This commentary takes a stance. It was at one time the consistent evangelical stance but that has changed with many in recent years, taking the Song of Songs to be a book dealing with marriage and sexuality.
This opinion appears to be gaining less favor of late, so it is time for a modern commentary which takes this viewpoint into account, but which reestablishes the line that the Song of Songs is primarily an exposition of the spiritual relationship between Christ and the believer. It is not denied that we can learn from the Song at a human level, since Paul set the relationship between husband and wife in the context of the relationship between Christ and the church.
At the heart of the Song is a beautiful relationship for us to explore. It was written in the eight century BC at a time of material prosperity. Its lessons for the contemporary church are particularly apt. Too often modern commentaries become a discussion between commentators rather than an exploration of what the text has to say to contemporary readers.
Allan Harman has recently retired from the posts of principal and professor of Old Testament at the Presbyterian Theological College in Melbourne Australia.
Frenetic scholarly activity has raged over differing interpretations of the book of Daniel. Many liberal scholars claim that it is full of fanciful accounts, some that the prophecies were written after the events occurred. Bob Fyall deals with such questions in his introduction before he goes on to explain the text. He shows us why it was written and when it was written. Daniel is an excellent example of Godly living, and there is a theme throughout the book of Daniel that God reigns sovereignly and that he will use those who know him to do his will in history.
The book of Daniel is also a book which contains prophecy and visions. Some of the prophecies are remarkably detailed and are fulfilled in history, while others concern the coming kingdom of the Messiah. Campbell , The Monthly Record. Prior to that, he was the director of Rutherford House, Edinburgh.

The breakdown of family values is having a devastating effect on society. Older people are no longer respected by the young, lawlessness abounds, everyone does what they like with no thought for their neighbors, politicians, and the government is viewed as corrupt. The leaders of the church are out of touch, out of mind, and out to lunch. In addition to this volume on Hosea, he published numerous books on the theology of Martyn Lloyd-Jones.
Amos had no claim to fame. He was not even a son of a prophet. Neither had he had any formal training to be a prophet. Yet God called him out from a career of being a herdsman. Amos was called to speak at the time of national disunity, military superiority, economic prosperity, and religious activity. Amos brings home the idea of a famine.
However it is not food the people lack like we might expect, but there is a famine of the Word of God. Through this study you will be reminded of the importance of the Word of God in your lives. These prophets were writing during the seventh and eighth century BC. There are also Messianic and future prophetic themes, such as the eternal reign of a king from the line of David Micah and the destruction of Jerusalem Zephaniah.
This fascinating period of Bible history is full of drama, wisdom and insight. John L. Mackay is internationally known as an Old Testament scholar and is also in demand for church retreats where his skill in the practical exposition and application of doctrine are well respected. The ministry of Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi is a record of how God deals with people he has restored as they try to translate their basic loyalty to him into practical action.
Restoring their temple and the physical trappings of their ravaged kingdom was not an end in itself. God was, and is, primarily interested in obedient minds and wills in people who have a heart for God. It is carefully arranged by subject matter as a clear explanation to the Jewish people, and to the world, of who Jesus is. Here you will meet Jesus the great teacher, the storyteller, the prophet, the atoning sacrifice and much, much more.

This is an age of new interest in the supernatural, with so many possibilities of deception. Here is Jesus, the true God and perfect man, working the supernatural works of God. Who was this man? Indeed, if, as Mark believed, he really did rise from the dead, we should re-phrase the question: Who is this man?
Who did he claim to be? Geoffrey W. His theological studies were undertaken there and at the London Bible College. He served the College as a full-time lecturer for 14 years before going south in to teach at LBC. In he returned to Glasgow as principal. He has written books on the trinity, the person of Christ, Paul, the Psalms, and commentaries on Isaiah, Mark, and 2 Corinthians. He is now retired and has been a part-time pastor in a Baptist Church. Acts is an exciting story of church growth despite inner problems and outward conflict.
