 Re: commentary recommendation

NoahJD,

You can get free commentaries by downloading e-sword (e-sword.net)

There are two commentaries that are really good on e-sword (that are free):
1) Matthew Henry
2) John Gill

To be honest, higher-critical commentaries are not worth it. They tend to be more concerned about grammar than about letting the power of God's Word penetrate our hearts.

Another commentary series that I have found particularly beneficial is Tyndale (both OT and NT).

May God bless your study of His Word.
In Christ,
Renoncer

 Re: commentary recommendation

I have some on my E-sword (and mySword) that are good enough, but one time one of them is good, another time I use the other.

I also have a question: is there a more arminian commentary?

 Re: is there a more arminian commentary

Frank Gaebelein's Expository Bible Commentary set would probably be along the lines you are looking for. I would recommend you consult both. For centuries Matthew Henry's commentary has been used by Calvinists and Arminians (ie. Whitefield and Wesley), though Henry was decidely Calvinist. So if you're getting a set you might think of getting both Gaebelein and W. Hendriksen, so that you may benefit from both perspectives. Just don't restrict yourself to arminian commentaries only.

 Re: commentary recommendation

By the way: I got already some commentaries in Dutch and English, but mostly are calvinist, therefor I also want some more arminian...
