"Understandest thou what thou readest?"

So asked Philip of one who was diligently searching the scriptures.

This is my companion for this year's study. Three volumes. Second time through. I am sure I will learn, or re-learn much.

Excellent collection for anyone wanting a clear explanation of the new testament. From restored gospel perspective.

The best commentary on the New Testiment and practically the only way to survive Paul for the uninitiated.
