This 12-volume series is designed for Christians of all ages and backgrounds, those seeking an accessible reference that aids personal Bible study or Sunday school preparation. The first volume to release, Matthew and Mark (number 8 in the set), provides section-by-section commentary on the flow and theme of each book, as well as historical and literary context for each. Major interpretations are presented for controversial passages and topics. Puzzling passages and Bible practices are explained, and charts and diagrams further aid the reader's understanding. "Take Home" segments provide a practical application for each passage of scripture.
