NOTE: This resource will install as a REFERENCE BOOK file under the REFERENCE tab in e-Sword software.

The Bible Teacher's Commentary is specifically designed for teachers of all ages of students: children, youth, and adults. It is packed with "how to teach it" ideas, and with insights into how the Scriptures can applied to people today. Richards divides the Bible into 174 teachable sections.

Each section features:
• Links to Life: Practical applications for Children, Youth and Adults
• Key Biblical and theological terms are defined for maximum understanding
• Background of Bible events are explained, revealing lessons for life today

This is a commentary on the whole Bible that you will want to read for your personal enrichment and use every time you prepare to teach God's Word.

The Bible Teacher's Commentary answers most questions a teacher might ask:

• What does this passage teach?
• How can I make this truth plain?
• What is the best way to help my students apply this teaching?
• What is God saying to me?
• How does the passage or story I'm about to teach fit with what comes before and after it?
• Where can I find other passages that develop this theme?
• What can I do to get my class interested and involved?
• How can I help my students really understand?

"No greater need is imaginable than that of a commentary for teachers of the Bible…. Dr. Larry Richards has prepared The Teacher's Commentary as a magnificent and succinct insight into the Scriptures. Get one for every teacher in your Sunday school."
- W.A. Criswell, Pastor, First Baptist Church, Dallas, Texas

Reviewed by (Brian Casner, REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio, US) -

First comment -- Beware, this is NOT a commentary like others are. This is a REFERENCE LIBRARY item. So if you look for it in your commentary selections you won't find it. You have to look in your reference library's for this.

Second comment -- It's actually quite good. It's set up to cover wide swathes of scripture and does a good job with the 'big picture' concepts.

Bottom line? I'd recommend it but understand it's NOT a verse by verse commentary.

Reviewed by (Elder Jeffery M. Herrington Sr., Haines City, Florida, US) - This Bible Teacher's Commentary has been a very good addition to my list of Commentaries.

Reviewed by (Dave Calvert, San Antonio, Texas, US) - This is not a commentary - in my opinion. It is a series of topical studies. In my teaching experience I usually avoid topical studies per se. I rather like to take a Biblical book and teach the book. I am not impressed with having all points begin with the same letter - as this resource seems to do. It will not be one of the resources I go to the most.

Bacon Saver for me! (1/6/2015)
Reviewed by (Kelly E McClelland, ORLANDO, Florida, United States) - I am a big fan of Larry Richard's materials. I have used them in my personal ministry and as a seminary and Bible school instructor shared them with my students as a simple and reliable source of information and help. I was glad to see this commentary available for e-Sword and scooped it up. It was a great help for preparing for filling the pulpit for my church here in Orlando the last Sunday of 2014! Just in time to give me the inspiration and idea to make my sermon impart what the Holy Spirit wanted people to receive. Glad to have this one so handy now! I plan to make an online course soon on simple Bible study tools and how to use them. This commentary is one I will highlight in that course.

Sunday School Teachers Best Friend (12/19/2013)
Reviewed by (Ron Carter, Jonesville, NC, US) - As a teacher of God's Holy Word it is a blessing to have all of my resources in one software package. The Bible Teacher's Commentary is an excellent resource for any teacher, pastor, or any individual who wants to stay in the word. The explanations are very informative and helps me in my discussion of the Bible.

Bible Teacher's Commentary (8/18/2013)
Reviewed by (Thomas Donelan, JACKSONVILLE, Florida, United States) - An excellent resource, gives good teaching tips with a thorough commentary on each passage. I like the integrated Bible references as well. Only reason it got 4 stars instead of five in my opinion is that I would like to see the commentary tied into the Bible references (like if I was studying John 3:16, the commentary would come up with the other commentaries in that window. Other than that this is a resource well worth the money. It is a great addition to E-Sword.

Not quite what I was looking for . . . (2/7/2013)
Reviewed by (Jeff Birt, Hanover, PA, US) - It looks like there's some good content, but it isn't quite what I was looking for. First, it's available as a reference book, not a commentary that I can read in the commentary window. Second, it isn't what I expect from a commentary--a thorough, passage-by-passage exposition of the text. It's more suggested helps and outlines for teaching. Perhaps I'll use it some, but not as much as I would have a real commentary I can use in the commentary window.

The Bible Teacher's Commentary for e-Sword PC (3/26/2012)
Reviewed by (jim cantrell, Tishomingo, Ok, US) - Another useful resource: The Bible is an exciting and enriching Book. It is a privilege to study, and an even greater privilege to teach. For years now I’ve felt a need for a commentary just for teachers. A commentary that will guide a teacher to understand the broader meaning of any passage or story he or she might teach, and that will also contain ideas to help that teacher communicate life-changing truth to learners of every age. It has been a joy to work with Victor Books and its fine editorial staff to create just such a commentary. I have had the privilege over the years of teaching every passage covered in this commentary — to graduate students at Wheaton College, to adult classes and home Bible studies in several churches, and often to boys and girls directly and through Sunday School curriculum. If this commentary enriches your study as you prepare to teach, stimulates your creativity, and helps you experience the joy to be found in sharing God’s Word with others, it will fulfill my greatest desires." "Lawrence O. Richards" "Florida, 1987" Mr Richards wishes have been fulfilled. Another Blessing, God Bless, jim

Reviewed by (Dan Schauer, Inver Grove Heights, MN, US) -

The product is fine. I'm disappointed because the Bible Teacher's Commentary doesn't show up in the Commentary window of E-Sword. To get to the BTC, you have to go to the Dictionary menu and pull it down. Kind of a pain! If you could fix this, I would be very happy with the product.

A wealth of information (9/21/2011)
Reviewed by (Timothy M., Newport News, VA, US) - The Bible Teacher's Commentary provides great information for teaching practical scriptural applications. This is not a commentary I would typically read for personal enrichment and insight during daily bible study and meditation, but when I need a lesson plan for one of my groups and am feeling a bit lost in how best to present scripture, BTC really shines. Another great tool from the E-Sword product line. Recommended.
