ABOUT THE HODDER BIBLE COMMENTARY:
Luke • $26.99 • 9781473695016 • 464 pp. • July 18, 2024
There are many ways to be lost in life, but the most serious is to be lost to God. Luke’s Gospel introduces us to the people who met Jesus, understood his message, and experienced his saving power. David Peterson’s commentary shows us how we might have a better understanding of the significance of Jesus for ourselves, grasp hold of the salvation he offers, and be faithful disciples in our different world contexts today.
David G. Peterson teaches at Cornhill Sydney and Moore College in Sydney, Australia. Formerly Principal of Oak Hill Theological College in London, he is the author of commentaries on Romans (BTCP), Hebrews (Tyndale) and Acts (Pillar), and other books including Engaging with God (a biblical theology of worship).
Mark • $24.99 • 9781473695023 • 336 pp. • July 18, 2024
Mark’s Gospel takes us to the heart of Jesus’s mission, and vividly presents us with the teaching and actions which turned the world upside down. In this warm-hearted commentary, Chris Moore pays particular attention to Mark’s use of the Old Testament and draws upon a wide range of global and historical Christian writings to show how deeply subversive Jesus is. Mark is a short Gospel, but it is far from simple. It is rich with doctrine and invites his readers to follow the Christ who is none other than the Son of God.
Christopher K W Moore is the Rector of the Benefice of Fownhope (St Mary) with Mordiford, Brockhampton, and Woolhope near Hereford in the UK. He also serves as the Regional Director of Church Society in the South and West of England.
Acts • $26.99 • 9781473694965 • 416 pp. • July 18, 2024
The book of Acts tells the story of God’s unstoppable mission as the good news of the gospel reaches the nations. Acts invites us to become the next generation of witnesses, attesting to the transforming power of the risen Lord. Martin Salter’s commentary shows how we can be confident that wherever we are and whatever we face, the one enthroned in heaven is still at work, through his people, empowered by his Spirit, to transform lives.
Martin Salter is the Lead Pastor of Grace Community Church in Bedford and a trustee of Keswick Ministries. He is the author of Mission in Action: A Biblical Description of Missional Ethics, The Power of Pentecost (an examination of Acts 2), and So Loved: 26 Words that can Change your Life.
Ecclesiastes • $21.99 • 9781529302110 • 208 pp. • July 18, 2024 How can we live well in a world that can feel meaningless? Ecclesiastes invites us to face the hard truth that our lives are very brief and mostly out of our control. But that doesn’t mean God leaves us to despair. In this searching and uplifting commentary, Eric Ortlund helps us see that our earthly lives are gifts from God. This life may be brief and frustrating, but it is good – and deeply worth treasuring.
