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. It's helped to give an insight on Scripture that I didn't have previously. This Commentary will cut your Study time because you won't have to go through and find supporting Scriptures because it lists them! If you're looking for a Study help, The Teacher's Commentary for E-Sword is what you're looking for!
Reviewed by (Antonio Raimondi, Robertson, Western Cape, South Africa) - Excellent resource
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.
Reviewed by (Lynette Fowlston, Paris, Tennessee, US) - With teaching a women's bible and also like to do deep studies, this book has been a great help. Having used it a few times already I found it has helped me.

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.
Reviewed by (Dana Krebs, Fairport, NY, US) - I love the easy way to grab what I need as I prepare to study and teach. These are great tools that I wish I had used and prepared from earlier in my walk. Keep up the good work!

Sunday School Teachers Best Friend
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
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.
Reviewed by (Keith Guinn, Jackson, TN, US) - I love E-Sword! The Bible Teacher's Commentary helps me prepare my lessons for my Sunday School Class! One can never learn enough about the Bible.Thanks again!
Not quite what I was looking for . . .
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.
Reviewed by (Jeff Bell, Bakersfield, CA, US) - I purchased in a bundle, and got more than my money's worth. Good resource with lots of pertainent information and thought provoking comments. The bundle was definitely worth it, highly recommend.

The Bible Teacher's Commentary for e-Sword PC
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"
Mr Richards wishes have been fulfilled.

The Bible Teacher's Commentary for e-Sword PC
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.
Location in ESword
Reviewed by (William Booth, Altha, Florida, US) - I would like to see this commentary show up in the commentary section instead of the resrouces section. Or, how can I get it to show up in the commentary section of Esword since it is a commentary.

I have searched for many months and decided to try The Bible Teacher's Commentary for e-Sword. Finally, after a long and tedious search, I found the one tool that I have been looking for. Not only will you find the particular subjects that need to be taught in our day and time, you will find that help that you need so that all of your students will understand exactly what God is trying to say to them personally.
A wealth of information
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.
