These commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text actually says and what it means. The introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of questions of authorship and date. This is helpful to the general reader by showing the original setting and purpose of the book. It is also invaluable for students and teachers wanting an informed treatment of the key issues which combines scholarship with respect for the text. The commentary itself takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and faces up to problems of interpretation. Additional notes give a fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the text of the Bible and to make its message plain. - Back cover
Christian mission in the modern world by John R. W Stott( Book )

42 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Stott's aim is to examine the biblical meaning of some of the great key words which are at the centre of the contemporary debate about Christian mission. In that debate, the interpretation of mission which is popular in some circles within the ecumenical movement differs acutely from that which has been held traditionally by many evangelicals. The way forward is for the two sides to meet together in a joint study of the Scripture, and to correct and enrich their own and others' understanding of mission by a deeper understanding of the biblical missionary theme and a fuller submission to it. Four adjectives describe this book: biblical, clear, fair, constructive. - Foreword

If we take an honest look at Jesus, we will discover that following him gives us the purpose, identity and freedom we've been searching for--and far more than we had ever imagined

Guard the Gospel; the message of 2 Timothy by John R. W Stott( Book )

20 editions published between 1973 and 1999 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The words which crystallize the letter for me are the two little monosyllables su de (but as for you), which occur four times. Timothy is called to be different. He is not to yield to the pressures of public opinion or conform to the spirit of his age, but rather to stand firm in the truth and the righteousness of God. - Preface

The incomparable Christ by John R. W Stott( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyone has something to say about Jesus. Sorting through the numerous books of recent years, you may find yourself lost in a thicket of viewpoints, some troubling to faith, some puzzling to the intellect. But John Stott, one of the outstanding evangelical voices of the last half century, offers in The Incomparable Christ an enriching vision of Jesus that defies measurement. In this newly Americanized, paperback edition Stott invites you to view Jesus from four perspectives: The Original Jesus: How the New Testament witnesses to Jesus in the Gospels, Acts and the Letters; The Ecclesiastical Jesus: How the church has presented Jesus historically, from Justin Martyr, Benedict and Anselm, to Thomas à Kempis, Martin Luther and Thomas Jefferson, to Gustavo Guitiérrez, N.T. Wright, and the Edinburgh and Lausanne missionary confessions of the twentieth century; The Influential Jesus: How people from St. Francis to Tolstoy, from Gandhi to Roland Allen, from Father Damien to William Wilberforce have taken inspiration from him; The Eternal Jesus: How he continually challenges today's men and women through ten visions from the book of Revelation. This is the Jesus who is like no other--worthy of your worship, your confession and your obedience as you follow him into the future. - Publisher
