This isn't so much a commentary as it is a Bible overview, but I cannot tell you how helpful it is. It is a collection of Baxter's lessons on the Bible that he gave over the course of several years. It is meant to be a supplement to your regular Bible reading. It bears a lot of similarities to Martyn Loyd-Jones and J. Vernon McGee's style.

At the the start of Faith Community this was part of the mens discipleship and is a wonderful work to help you go through the Bible. Just stay away from his local flood idea and his freewill mentality also overly big on typology.

This is a mostly a great commentary. I didn't like the way the author handles parts of the Genesis portion, and I am rather particular about that book. I really liked the sections on the minor prophets. very informative.

A very good high level commentary. Although it follows the Bible front to back, this is not a verse by verse commentary. There are Scripturally sound insights in this work that I have not seen elsewhere. I frequently refer to it when addressing a broad topic.

“Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age.”

Note the “I Am.” In the Greek it is the strongest possible form of expression – Ego Eimi. Both ego and eimi mean “I am” but the former puts the emphasis on the “I” while the latter puts it on the “am.” Taken together they are the strongest Greek form to express the name of God as the great “I AM.” That is how the risen Christ here refers to Himself. “Lo, I AM with you!” But there is a lovely feature in the Greek construction here which does not reveal itself in our English translation. It reads like this:

“And lo, I with you AM…”

You and I dear fellow believer, are in between the “I” and the “AM.” He is not only with us, He is all around us. Not only now and then, but “always” which literally translated is, “all the days” … this day, this hour, this moment. Why, when we reflect on it, were not our Lord’s sudden appearings & disappearings during the 40 days between His resurrection and His ascension meant to teach those early disciples (and ourselves) this very thing, that even when He is invisible He is none the less present, hearing, watching, knowing, sympathizing, overruling? Let us never forget that the special promise of His presence is given in connection with our going forth as winners of others to Him.”
