"The Cookies Put on the Bottom Shelf..."
By Jerry Parks "USAToday All-American Teacher; N... - June 4, 2002
Perhaps Dr. McGee's favorite phrase expressed best, his philosophy of teaching the Word of God: "...let me put the cookies on the bottom shelf, so the children can enjoy them too." This is a commentary everyone can enjoy! It is the much more useable version of his single book commentaries which ended up three feet long!First off, this commentary set is not exhaustive. It is easy to understand, full of practical illustrations, and does not cover every single verse of scripture. It is the compilation of the entire five-year "Thru the Bible" radio commentary put into print, and though it's not the first commentary I go to, it's the last one I'd part with!Years ago, I ordered every one of the 266 tapes that Dr. McGee broadcasts on "Thru the Bible". I'm proud to say that I've probably listened to the entire set three of four times. Like Dr. McGee, I believe Scripture profits us most when studied as a whole. So, when the transcribed commentary set came... read more
Thru the Bible 1-5
By Suzanne A. Stewart - September 4, 2000
These books are as if you were sitting, visiting on the porch of your old uncle Vernon down the road a-piece, until you realize that this learned and delightful man has more initials after his name than you could think. Mr. McGee takes a single word, a sentence and a chapter from scripture and puts flesh on it, makes it real and gives it the flavor of the day and the reality of now. His delightful humor and easy wit smooth the way of learning. Study of the Old and New Testaments can get bogged down in interpretation, reference and a thousand other thoughts. Mr. McGee not only guides you, but his demonstration of the significance of just one word has the ability to open your thinking in ways you would not have easily determined on your own. His thinking adhears to the written word and you are left with the realization that his teaching is valuable.This process has become a most enjoyable passtime as opposed to a duty of study. Honestly, I look forward to my time... read more
On the Bible Bus
By email@example.com - April 23, 2000
This commentary on every book of the Bible is taken from J. Vernon McGee's Radio Broadcast. His friendly, easy, style translates well to the printed page, as does his conviction that the entire Bible is the Wholly inspired Word of GOD. Pastor McGee takes as literal a view of Scriture as is possible, and hleps to coordinate seeming contradictions. He is careful to point out fulfilled prophecies, and also points on which he and other commentators disagree. I would recommend this set for every pastor, priest, Sunday School Teacher, and bible student as a reference which should be in constant use.
