There are commentaries and there are books on preaching – but very few books that combine elements of both to enable the preacher or Bible teacher to prepare a series on specific sections of Scripture.
This series gives the Bible teacher suitable tools to understand the context of Biblical books; doctrinal themes; the methods of interpretation; the key interpretation points and how to communicate that message for the hearer.
Whilst very useful for preachers, this book is also aimed at equipping small group study leaders, youth workers and other Bible teachers.The books are purposefully practical. Section One contains ‘navigation’ material to enable you to access the text of Romans. Section 2 works systematically through a suggested preaching or Bible study series. Preaching outlines and Bible study questions are included for each passage.

“The Teaching series is a great resource for Bible study leaders and pastors, indeed for any Christian who wants to understand their Bible better.”
~Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church and President, 9Marks.org, Washington, DC
“The need of the hour is Bible knowledge. When knowledge fails, faith fails, and we are shaped instead by cultural forces alien to God. This teaching series, written by skilled and trustworthy students of God’s word, helps us to understand the Bible, believe it and obey it. I commend it to all Bible readers, but especially those whose task it is to teach the inspired word of God.”
~Peter Jensen, Retired Archbishop of Sydney, Sydney, Australia
“North India desperately needs men and women who will preach and teach the Bible faithfully and PT’s Teaching series is of great value in encouraging them to do just that.”
~Isaac Shaw, Executive Director, Delhi Bible Institute, New Delhi, India
“The task of moving from the text of Scripture to clear and faithful exposition is challenging. This series of excellent guides aims to help the Bible teacher to observe what is there in the text, and prepare to convey its significance to contemporary hearers. In this way these volumes often do more than the weightier technical commentaries. It is like having the guidance of an experienced coach in the wonderful work of rightly handling the word of truth”.
~John Woodhouse, Retired Principal and Lecturer in Doctrine and Old Testament, Moore College, Sydney, Australia
