Whether you’re a pastor, teacher, or curious Christian, use these BE series commentaries to study the Bible verse-by-verse in easy-to-read sections that emphasize personal application as well as biblical meaning. The BE Series is the culmination of Dr. Wiersbe’s life work and is respected by many as a warm and stimulating approach to Bible study.
One reviewer says, “Dr. Wiersbe writes with such clarity and in a ‘down to earth’ fashion, it is a thorough encouragement and makes me want to dig into God’s Word even deeper and learn and grow more.”
