Your Stories….

I have always wanted to read the whole Bible but never made to the time to do it until I lost my job 2 years ago. After losing my job I rededictated my life to God and made the decision to study and learn more about God. I did not know where to begin or know which commentary was right for me or would help me understand God’s word. I can’t remember actually how but the Holy Spirit directed me to this website the Enduring Word. Thank You David, May God continue to bless you for creating this site My life has changed since I started reading my bible along with this commentary. This commentary is easy to read, understand and is practical. I find it easy for me to relate to what is going on in my life and the world around me. Reading the Bible is a habit now, its apart of my daily routine (day & night). When I read the bible I have a brand new song to sing, I feel more at Peace, I trust in God more, I love more, and I handle all my battles/situations differently all because I have a better understanding of God’s word. Thank you again, I can now win battles with the word of God and continuously build my relationship with My Saviour.

Hey David, I love your website and podcast out there. I have listened numerous times and periodically use your website to do Biblical resource. Your organization makes it very easy and I love the quotes you pull and your commentary. Teaching Biblical History is a whole lot easier with your help!

I will soon be starting a bible study on the book of Matthew at a nearby state prison in Kansas, under the umbrella of Prison Fellowship Ministries. Thank You!

Thank you for making your commentary available. As a high school Bible teacher I often turn to your commentary when students have questions or objections regarding a specific scripture. Also, in my own personal studies it helps me see a text more fully. I really appreciate all the application I find in the commentary. Thank you!

KevinHigh School Bible Teacher Says "Thanks"

I’ve read the Bible on and off for years as I was raised this way and knew it was the “right” thing to do. Often, I would just quickly read through passages not understanding one bit of it but just wanting to check it off my list of “to-do’s” for the day. A few years back though, I had the desire to actually understand what I was reading and know the history surrounding events that seemed so confusing. I think I googled Bible commentaries and after looking through a few different ones, I knew this was the commentary that was going to assist me in my study of the Bible more than any other commentary. I have gained the most useful knowledge from reading this commentary and any time I’m confused about what I’m reading, I just go to my favorites and open up Enduring Word! Not only has this provided invaluable help to me, it has opened me up to the knowledge of great theologians of the past. Without Enduring Word, I would’ve never read some of my favorite quotes by Spurgeon or known of other wonderful words by other students of the Bible. My Bible is full of these quotes and I have grown deeper in faith and knowledge because of these resources. Thank you for the work you do! I look forward to reading your commentary on books you have yet to finish. May God continue to bless your work!

I got inspired today after I finished preparing my weekly Bible study for my mom’s assisted living.

I’ve been using your commentaries on Blue Letter Bible for a few years now and I just wanted to say thank you.

It was the Lord’s Providence that put an idea into a staff members’ mind to ask me to lead a ‘Bible reading’ once they found out I was a Christian. I never considered myself a Bible teacher, but you know when you get the call to volunteer, that God has a plan and will give you all that you need…
It’s been 2 years now that Bible reading is a full on study. I have 15 faithfuls that come out with many others that have come and heard the Gospel.

One particularly incredible story is a beloved 89 year old Jewish woman named Joan. She attended for about a year. Her family had to move her closer to themselves which was so sad for us. But before she left she told me how she had received Jesus the Messiah and one day while sitting outside in her wheelchair she, for the first time in her life, felt the presence of God. She said it was like God was holding her and that she had a peace she had never known.

This is so deep and rich I just had to share… your studies and research and life devoted to God’s Word has yielded such fruit.

I am simply the boy with a few loaves and God has done and will do the work.

Thank you. I am such a studier of God’s Word now and I attribute a lot of that to your Spirit led studies.

Thank you dear brother.
So blessed to know we will see the eternal harvest soon.

From Ryan Wright

These commentaries and topical sermons give a view to scripture as if you were to pick it up from the table, turn it around, look at it from the bottom, the top, and the inside. It gives me a dimensional view. Truth is revealed by matching scripture with scripture, all in context, with an understanding of the traditions, and cultures of the authors and the immediate audience. It’s like taking a silent, black and white film and showing it with color, sound, and narration.

These commentaries are by no means more valuable than scripture. The value is in the way the teacher views the Bible by looking for truth, rather than forcing opinions just to try and satisfy an answer.

With the audio sermons, I am able to listen as often as possible when driving or getting ready in the morning, or even as I fall asleep at night if I didn’t get the chance to listen in the day. With this saturation of the Word and Pastor Guzik’s teaching I am freshly prepared to provide witness and give answers to many questions others have of The Father, Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit.

We have been studying Revelation in our Bible Study group and it has been encouraging to read the insight of such a fine Christan who God has given understanding about His Word.

Fritz E. MoreheadGuzik’s Commentary on Revelation=Outstanding!

Amazing study from a wonderful pastor and author. If you like verse by verse study, then this is your book. Plus, and I’ve said this before, I like when authors give credit to others’ commentaries and theological wisdom, instead of writing as though they were the final authority on the book. Well done, David Guzik.

RwrnskExcellent study

I really enjoy this author’s study guides. They are in-depth and show good knowledge of the Scriptures. I have several of his study guides.

Red Hat FlusherI really enjoy this author’s study guides

Great work D.G.! Considering that most consideration, commentary-wise, for Revelation ends up being nothing more than conjecture, this book gives serious students like myself tasty meat to chew on. It stands alongside W.W.Wiersbe, Ray Stedman’s “God’s Final Word”, Wm.Barclay, and Dr.David Reagan’s “Wrath and Glory” as my personal TOP 5 for Revelation. Guzik addresses translation differences between other scholars, not to propose greater weight for his own, but to clarify and head off common misunderstanding(s). His use of copious scriptural cross-referencing allows the reader to see that D.G. wants the Bible to clarify itself, so at the end of the day, you aren’t going to say “Here’s what David Guzik says about such and such…” but, more properly, “Here’s what I’ve learned that God’s Word supports…” Guzik also takes the same approach that I do (which, incidently will probably NOT enable him to sleep more soundly)… irregardless of how one was brought up historically, culturally, religiously, traditionally or otherwise, there are simply too many cockamamie theorems floating around out in the world… Revelation is replete with GOOD NEWS!!! The author uses Barclay, Clarke, Erdman, Hocking, Leon Morris, Mounce, Poole, Chuck Smith, Spurgeon, Tenney, and Waldvoord, among others in this 272 page work. By the way, at no time does Guzik surmise that he should name any current nation or man or timeline so we can mark our calendars or withdraw our savings for that trip around the world before the lights go out…. See for yourself.
