Help to think and Pray on Sermons. (9/2/2015)
Reviewed by (Chris James, PLYMOUTH, DEVON, United Kingdom) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
This is a lot to read and as such taken in small bits. It reads well and gives lots of ideas to think and pray through when preparing a sermon or just for personal study. I am currently enjoying it very much. Well worth the cost. I am visually impaired so having it on the pc is great for enlarged easy access. I thank our Gracious Lord for such resources.
Great Resource (6/2/2015)

A great resource for any Pastor or teacher of the Gospel. It has up-to-date illustrations that can be used in a teaching and preaching setting. It is my go-to for all my teaching needs. I use this commentary more than any other in my library.

Seeds for Thought (6/2/2015)

The entries in the Preacher's Commentary give a good mix of insights, illustrations and corresponding Scripture. It's like talking through a passage with a fellow preacher. We can stimulate one another to consider a passage more carefully and glean new insights from it.

Depends what you are looking for... (8/18/2013)
Reviewed by (food4thought ., Somewhere, Michigan) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
I have used and enjoyed this commentary, and it has helped me in my preparation for leading a weekly Bible study at my church. The ONLY reason I gave it 3 stars instead of 4 or 5 was because it often doesn't confront problem texts like I would like, and it is almost devotional in it's style, although it is much more detailed, theological, and concise than any devotional I've ever read. I was looking for something with more apologetics bite to it, and more verse by verse instead of passage by passage in it's breakdown.
Good commentary if help in formulating sermon material or understanding the main points of passages is what you're looking for.
Best Commentary I own. (8/18/2013)
Reviewed by (Shelby Farmer, Baldwin Park, California) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
I love e-Sword in my preparation of sermons and Bible lessons. I especially like the Preacher's Commentary for the way truths of the Bible are explained and expressed. I get a lot of good ideas for sermons from it. Thanks for making it available.
The Best (7/16/2013)

This is the best thing going for busy pastors in helping to prepare sermons. I am very pleased with the information. It is also good for Bible Study also.
Fantastic commentary - Reliable and full of precious insights. (6/2/2013)
Reviewed by (Nico Zwaneveld, Hoofddorp, N.Holl., Netherlands) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
This commentary is written in a manner that is eazy to read and easy to understand. This doesn't mean that the content is shallow..., on the contrary, you get a large amount of details. I love the insights this gives. It is helping me increase my love and understanding of the bible. I have been using a number of nice commentaries in the past, and the content of this commentary has exceeded all of my expectations. This commentary has now become the primary commentary that I use, and rarely do the other commentaries add new insights. What pleases me even more is that when I open the commentary to look up what has been preached on Sunday, it is almost seems like the pastor (and visiting pastors) use the same commentary in their preparations.
Thank you for making this commentary available at such a nice price. Highly recommended!
The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword (2/7/2013)
Reviewed by (Michael Oakes, Redcar, Cleveland, United Kingdom) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
It is good that this Preacher's Commentary does indeed appear in the commentary tabs which makes it very useful; it is not so easy looking at volumes which are hidden as "Topics". The Preacher's Commentary isn't quite what I expected - I expected more verse by verse comments, but what it gives is a summary message on a passage of Scripture. A reference for 2 Cor 9 is given as 2 Cor 8: "He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully" (2 Cor_8:6).
Since I have only had the Preacher's Commentary for a few weeks, it is too early to give more than a brief overview. The fact that it has a different Author for each section could mean that some comments will be more or less appealing than others.
Having made the above comments, it is only far to state that I have the Preacher's commentary installed on my PC and am using it every day as I study a particular verse or passage of Scripture.

What value another Preachers Commentary (2/6/2013)
Reviewed by (Ross Dean, Spalding, Lincolnshire, UK) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
When I first read the information about the Preachers Commentary, I was a bit frightened by the rest of its title ("35 Volumes")
How was I ever going to find room in my hectic life to be able to do justice to such a vast volume.
I need not have worried. My first entry into the very clear commentary which is linked to the vers or verses I am reading, makes this a joy to use and the information that it includes is both useful and thought provoking.
For anyone searching for a commentary, this coiuld be as far as you need to go in your search, at least for the forseeable future, as you will find plenty to excite your interest, and I believe plenty to be able to share with your flock's at whatever you are preparing for; be it Bible Study, Service and Sermon Preparation, or for personal study.
Read, enjoy and grow in faith and understanding of God's word.
God bless you - Ross
Keys to Kingdom (2/6/2013)
Reviewed by (Larry G Rowe, White Bear Lake, MN) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
At age 80, e-Sword is essential to my daily life. I use it more as a dictionary to research etymology of words, and for most appropriate synonyms. Words convey ideas and the best resource to understand the root ideas are these e-Sword bibles, commentaries, and dictionaries. The bible is not about religion, but about a king and a kingdom. It covers ideas of economics, political science, sociology, and psychology. And more! Heaven is hell if you don't understand the language, and understanding the language of the bible is to understand the universal and eternal language of the king and His kingdom.
Preachers Commentary Review (2/6/2013)
Reviewed by (John Balderston, Auckland, North ISland, New Zealand) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
I have been using the commentary alongside my daily reading and find it very insightful. It has enabled me to look inside the words and relate more in terms of the time it was written then more ably apply it to my life today. Though it is not an absolute study it is simple to follow and invites greater study and searching into what God is saying. It has motivated me not only in my personal life but also in my interactions with others who are searching out the things of God.
good value for 35 volume commentary (2/6/2013)
Reviewed by (nathan locklear, maxton, nc) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
I rank this commentary as four-star the only reason that I did not rank five-star is because the commentary is very in depth, but in some spots, lacks verse by verse teaching however is very useful. This is a great value, especially for a 35 volume commentary precise and to the point teaching is very clear and easily understandable. Another great commentary to help understand the word of God. I would recommend anyone to add this to their library

Excellent Insights (7/16/2012)
Reviewed by (Lynn Betts, Cheyenne, WY) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
Although The Preacher's Commentary is expensive (as far as e-Sword commentaries go), it is worth the money! Excellent insights for any serious student of the Bible. Good for preparation for Bible study sessions or sermons, or to be read for devotional insights. All contributors seem to take a conservative theological approach, while the comments are well-grounded but not too academic.
They were written in the 80s, so some of the illustrations are dated, but then not so dated as those in the public domain literature.
A Great asset for Serious Bible Studies (5/30/2012)
Reviewed by (Rick Bowden, Lynchburg, Virginia) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
This Commentary is so well designed that not only can a lay person learn, but technical for even a person with a Theological background, as well as Pastors and Ministers. It is well worth a serious student to have these references at thier disposal on esword. I would highly recommend it to any one who hungers and thirsts for more knowledge of God's precious Word.
Great Commentaries for the Serious Christian (4/3/2012)

These commentaries are written from a true believers perspective. There is no doubt about the foundational truths of Scripture. What they say is what they know was meant from God. There are many others that confuse and sew seeds of doubt. But these stay true to the text. Praise God!

Ever since I received the Preachers Commentary, I've been enjoying going through it. The portions that I referred to have been very useful for my meditation and for preparation for the Bible study. In the light of this, I can certainly say that it'll be so to all who are serious students of the word of God. There is a lot of information which is very useful and helpful for personal edification and for ministry. I am thankful to God that eStudySource made this product available at a discounted rate so that many like me could avail and use it.

Applicable, help to get some insight (1/4/2012)
Reviewed by (Richard Natasasmita, Jakarta, DKI Jakarta, Indonesia) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
Though it's not a kind of meticulous commentary, but it is suffice enough for having responsible interpretation in sermon preparation. Sometimes, as a preacher, we run out the insight which might attract the audience's attention. But this commentary accompanied with application or applicable thought that can trigger our mind to get more insight.
I reckon this commentary for a preacher, who have dense scheduled without override a responsible sermon.
Wrong expectations (12/29/2011)
Reviewed by (Andy Dell, Richmond, Ontario, Canada) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
Reviewing the commentary was very helpful, and good insights, however my expectations were a little off, 1) I was expecting "Sermon" format commentary - leverage to plug and play sermons or leverage the message track. 2) If this wasn't the format then I was expecting verse by verse, but it is section by section. Means alot of reading/filtering to get to the respective verse - similar to Matthew Henry commentary.
The Heart of God (12/12/2011)
Reviewed by (Cricket Boyd, St. John, IN, lake) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
I was searching for a Bible commentary that would help me understand some of the deeper things concerning God and His work. I saw the "Preachers Commentary" offered on e-sword and it sounded like what I was looking for. I have been using it now for quite a while and after each study I do, it's just like Jesus opens His heart, lets me see a little more of what is near and dear to Him, and then He draws me closer to Him than I was before. You will never be the same after using this commentary, neither will your people after hearing you teach about the things of God found in the pages of this book.

A Great Help to My People (10/5/2011)
Reviewed by (Bill Boyd, St. John, Indiana, Lake) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
We had just started a church and I had to go back to work to pay our expenses. Because of a near fatal accident at work, I now serve God as a quadriplegic and will do so for the rest of my life. I can no longer pastor, but because of E-Sword I can still help pastors and missionaries with Bible studies and Sunday school lessons. The Preacher's Bible Commentary is a little expensive, but when you consider how much help you are able to give your people from its lessons, you are purchasing helpful lesson after helpful lesson for mere pennies - I can highly recommend this from a pastor's heart of love for his people, and his heavy burden strong desire to help them.

I just started working with commentary and it is easy to work with but so far I haven't found anything outstanding about it.

Reviewed by (Man Chi Wong, Melbourne, VIC, Australia) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
I am a Sunday school teacher and have been servicing God in this area for 5 years. Sometimes, I also lead Bible study in my small group. I found The Preachers Commentary is very useful in my preparation of the service. It is easy to read without too much complicated theology. It is a good tool to assist me to gain inspiration from the Bible. The application, if not exhaustive, gives me a lot of insight in following God's Word. I would highly recommend this series to church leaders, Sunday school teachers, bible study leaders, discipleship leaders, or any Christian who wants to apply God's word to their life.
The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword PC (6/28/2011)
Reviewed by (Philip Anstey, Leamington Spa, Click to Select (if applicable), United Kingdom) - The Preachers Commentary 35 Vols. for e-Sword
I have been using the The Preacher's Commentary for about a week now, and have found it most helpful, with the different commentators on each book bringing their own particular points of view. I have found only one mistake: where the commentary on Hebrews 11 stated that Jacob's body was not buried for 400 years after his death. Actually Joseph made a special expedition back to the homeland to bury his father fairly soon after Jacob's death. (It was Joseph himself whose body remained unburied for several hundred years.)
