Moody Bible Institute Touts New Moody Bible Commentary

Moody Bible CommentaryAfter a more than five-year effort to create a world-class resource for Bible students, the faculty of the Moody Bible Institute has released The Moody Bible Commentary, a single-volume, 2,100-page commentary of the entire Bible designed so any believer who wants to really know God’s Word can easily use it.

“Once again, Moody Publishers, the name you can trust, has provided Bible students and teachers alike a comprehensive biblical resource that will help them to understand and communicate biblical truths effectively,” commented Tony Evans, President of The Urban Alternative. “It is a must-read tool for every Christian’s library.”

Headed by respected scholars Dr. Michael Rydelnik and Dr. Michael Vanlaningham, the team of contributors from the Moody Bible Institute brought their full knowledge and teaching ability to bear in The Moody Bible Commentary.

In the resource, each book of the Bible is introduced with clear explanations of its unique place and contribution to the canon of Scripture, as well as author bios and historical context of the book. Furthermore, difficult terms are defined and academic resources or background materials are explained so that readers don’t need accompanying study resources. The faculty team also answers the most common and pressing questions about tough passages so readers aren’t left confused or weighing options.

The Moody Bible Commentary has all the ingredients - a trustworthy organization with an unshakeable confidence in God’s Word, credible biblical scholarship, user-friendly language, and contemporary application,” noted James MacDonald, Pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel.

“It’s concise, biblically solid, deals with current theological issues, and provides quality scholarship in understandable language,” added Chip Ingram, CEO and Teaching Pastor at Living on the Edge. “I highly recommend it!”  

Released back in February, The Moody Bible Commentary is available for purchase in local Christian bookstores and online via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Lifeway Christian Stores, and Parable Christian Stores, among other retailers. Presently available are the hardcover and Kindle versions.
