Publisher Comments:

Unleashing God's Truth one verse at a time

"Clear, reasonable, understandable, devout-all things and more can be honestly said about this generation's greatest single-author pastoral commentary set. The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series is a help to Christians and preachers. Forged in the study, fired in the pulpit, these comments on the whole New Testament are a gift from one who loves Christ, given to Christ's bride, the church."

-Mark Denver, pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.

"Dr. MacArthur's love for the Scripture and his many years of diligent study have resulted in a resource that is a great gift to the Body of Christ. I have found this tool to be a great help as I study the Word and teach it to women. I often refer to this set of commentaries to enhance my understanding of the text and to shed light on difficult passages and questions."

-Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author, Revive our Hearts radio teacher

 "John MacArthur has provided a compelling example of pastoral ministry based on the Word of God. Now the fruit of that ministry is available to us all: careful attention to the text of Scripture and faithful theological exposition, all in the service of the church of Jesus Christ. Both pastor and layperson will benefit for years to come from this unique commentary series."

-C.J. Mahaney, president of Sovereign Grace Ministries

"The MacArthur New Testament Commentary is nothing less than a library of faithful exegesis and exposition. This project is unparalleled in our times, and John MacArthur has produced a masterful commentary series that demands attention and deserves a place in every preacher's library."

-R. Albert Mohler, Jr., PhD, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY

Synopsis:

This New Testament commentary series reflects this objective of explaining and applying Scripture. Some commentaries are primarily linguistic, others are mostly theological, and some are mainly homiletical. This one is basically explanatory, or expository. It is not linguistically technical, but deals with linguistics when this seems helpful to proper interpretation. It is not theologically expansive, but focuses on the major doctrines in each text and on how they relate to the whole of Scripture. It is not primarily homiletical, though each unit of thought is generally treated as one chapter, with a clear outline and logical flow of thought. Most truths are illustrated and applied with other Scripture. After establishing the context of a passage, I have tried to follow closely the writer's development and reasoning.

Synopsis:

The church at Corinth was a church with problems, not unlike the problems many churches face today.  These issues included worldliness, spiritual disunity, sexual sin, and questions about marriage and divorce, the role of women, and spiritual gifts.  Pastors and laypeople alike will benefit greatly as they explore the real-life richness of this epistle.

Join John MacArthur as he explains each verse in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.

The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series comes from the experience, wisdom, and insight of one of the most trusted ministry leaders and Bible scholars of our day.  Each volume was written to be as comprehensive and accurate as possible, dealing thoroughly with every key phrase and word in the Scripture without being unnecessarily technical.  This commentary will help to give a better, fuller, richer understanding of God's Word, while challenging the reader to a vibrant personal spiritual walk.

Synopsis:

Explanatory, verse-by-verse approach seeks to help readers gain proper interpretation and application of God's Word. Easy to understand, yet rich in scholarly background.
