About the Book
A new commentary for today's world, The Story of God Bible Commentary explains and illuminates each passage of Scripture in light of the Bible's grand story. The first commentary series to do so, SGBC offers a clear and compelling exposition of biblical texts, guiding everyday readers in how to creatively and faithfully live out the Bible in their own contexts. Its story-centric approach is ideal for pastors, students, Sunday school teachers, and laypeople alike.
Three easy-to-use sections designed to help readers live out God's story:
- LISTEN to the Story: Includes complete NIV text with references to other texts at work in each passage, encouraging the reader to hear it within the Bible's grand story
- EXPLAIN the Story: Explores and illuminates each text as embedded in its canonical and historical setting
- LIVE the Story: Reflects on how each text can be lived today and includes contemporary stories and illustrations to aid preachers, teachers, and students
Praise for SGBC:
"Pastors and lay people will welcome this new series, which seeks to make the message of the Scriptures clear and to guide readers in appropriating biblical texts for life today."
-Daniel I. Block, Wheaton College and Graduate School
"An extremely valuable and long overdue series that includes comment on the cultural context of the text, careful exegesis, and guidance on reading the whole Bible as a unity that testifies to Christ as our Savior and Lord."
-Graeme Goldsworthy, author of According to Plan
"Engagingly readable, it not only explores the biblical text but offers a range of applications and interesting illustrations."
-Craig S. Keener, Asbury Theological Seminary
"I love the SGBC series. It makes the text sing and helps us hear the story afresh."
-John Ortberg, Senior Pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church
"A perfect tool for helping every follower of Jesus to walk in the story that God is writing for them."
-Judy Douglass, Cru
'Carol Kaminski's commentary on Chronicles is a wonderful gift to the church. Her reading of the book is historically aware, literarily sensitive, theologically informed, and pastorally astute. Chronicles has often been neglected in the church, but need be no more.'
'Composed to reassure God's followers in a time of instability and uncertainty, the books of Chronicles offer hope that God's purposes will be fulfilled, while at the same time reminding the people of the importance of praying with humility. Drawing on the best of recent research, Prof. Kaminski's commentary on Chronicles is an accessible and judicious explanation of the text that helpfully addresses its relevance for modern readers. Bible readers interested in Chronicles will undoubtedly find this to be an exceptionally valuable resource.'
'What a gift to the church! Kaminski draws us into the sacred story of God's kingdom in the life of post-exilic Israel and helps the church see this same story continuing in our world today. With an engaging style, clear explanations, and rich theological insight, Kaminski has produced the go-to resource for pastors and Bible Study leaders who aim to savor 1-2 Chronicles and lead others to do the same.'
