A BRF Centenary Classic

The People’s Bible Commentary series presents scholarly insights in straightforward terms, aiming to instruct the head but also to warm the heart, and pointing to how the truths received can be applied personally. A special boxed set edition brings together five best-loved titles in the series to mark BRF’s centenary. Matthew's gospel is clear, organised and practical, giving prominence to Jesus' teaching about life style and relationships. Mark’s gospel is the shortest of the four first century books which share the story of Jesus of Nazareth, and the most vividly told. Luke's gospel stresses how acceptance of Jesus’ message means a complete reversal of worldly standards of success. John's gospel is a sublime masterpiece that has fascinated theologians and mystics for centuries. Acts is the story of the birth of the church and the beginnings of its journey around the world.
