The Bible Speaks Today Series - Old Testament Series

The Bible Speaks Today Series - Old Testament Series

Series Editor J. A. Motyer

Edited by J.A. Motyer and the late John R. W. Stott, the Bible Speaks Today commentaries are characterized by what Stott called a "threefold ideal . . . to expound the biblical text with accuracy, to relate it to contemporary life and to be readable." As such, each contributor in this series is both a noted scholar and a working pastor.

The BST Old Testament complete series covers all of the Old Testament in thirty-three volumes. If you preach or teach from Scripture, the Bible Speaks Today series will help you apply the timeless biblical message to the everyday experiences of your listeners. And if you study the Bible on your own, these volumes will be a helpful resource focusing on the significance of God's Word for your own life and work.

Originally published in 1968, the first title in the series was Stott's The Message of Galatians. It went on to become an incredibly beloved commentary, providing "excellent models for expository preachers, combining clarity of communication with careful exegesis, theological literacy and wise application. But they have also been eminently devotional," said Derek Tidball, series editor of the companion Bible Speaks Today Themes series. In the years since this series was first launched, more than one million copies have been sold of the Old and New Testament volumes.

"The Bible Speaks Today is a fine resource that works at listening to the message in the original situation of the biblical books and hearing God's Word for today through the Scriptures."

Christina Baxter

"These volumes are models of fruitful exposition."

J. I. Packer

"Transformation changes God's people and empowers the church to be Christ's body in the world. The Bible Speaks Today series has been written with just this transformation in mind and succeeds in helping it to happen. I have seen it!"

Mark Labberton

"The Bible Speaks Today series delivers on its promise: it allows us to truly hear the Scriptures in their original contexts, and empowers us to clearly communicate them in our own [contexts]. . . . With an eye to the preacher, these commentaries have helped me 'bring out of [the] storeroom new treasures as well as old (Mt 13:52)."

Mark Buchanan, author and pastor

"I recommend them wholeheartedly."

D. Stuart Briscoe

"Represents first-quality biblical scholarship from an evangelical perspective."

Preaching Magazine
