Leviticus

Leviticus is like God’s kindergarten. It is a place where a master teacher is at work instructing his people about his plans and nature. Sadly it has been relegated by many Christians as one of the bits of the Bible that no longer speaks to the New Testament believer – which is a tragedy!…

Ephesians: Encouragement and Joy in Christ

Receiving this book for review raised the question in my mind whether the English-speaking world needed another commentary on Ephesians. The policies of Christian publishers are, however, no reflection on the quality or usefulness of this volume. Dr Gardner makes the text of Paul’s letter easily accessible to the ordinary reader. He first gives…

Many Christians setting out to read through the Bible get stuck in Leviticus. I was once asked by a lecturer just starting to teach in Bible college if I could recommend a way to teach Leviticus. The enquirer wanted to give the class a way in to it and, if possible, a number of…

Hebrews (Reformed Expository Commentary)

This third ‘Reformed Expository Commentary’ has four aims common to the series, namely, to be biblical, doctrinal, redemptive-historical and practical. I hope that doesn’t put you off, because this exposition of Hebrews is also highly readable! It consists, in fact, of 52 sermons first preached by the author at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia.…
