My Top 15 Elements for Successful Bible Study – Baker’s Commentary

As we grow in our walk with Christ, knowing God’s word (and seeking it with zeal) is one of the most important things we can do.  After all, he’s revealed himself to us in two primary ways: Through his Holy Spirit, which we received as a gift when we became Christians, and in his Word.

This post is the fifth of 15.  In each post, I’ll be examining my personal “Top 15″ things leading to successful bible study.  This series of posts can be filed under “Going Deeper.”

Going Deeper: Baker’s Commentary on the Bible.  Anyone who’s ever read the bible as a lay person knows that there are bits and pieces that are pretty tough to understand – especially without historical, social, political and geographic context.  Baker’s commentary has become especially useful to me  in sorting through this.  It gives a detailed analysis and context for every book of the bible, but also works through capter-by-chapter and verse-by-verse giving commentary on each passage.  This is invaluable for stickier, more controversial passages.  Plus, it looks impressive on your bookshelf, and makes a phenomenal paperweight (It’s about 4 1/2 inches thick).
