New! Gospel Transformation Bible Notes
Transformation: def. "a change in nature, disposition, heart, or character"
A Timely Study Bible with a Message that is Timeless
Designed to be transformational, The Gospel Transformation Bible Notes focus on heart transformation from the inside out, rather than mere behavior modification. Produced out of the conviction that the Bible is a unified message of God’s grace culminating in Jesus, The Gospel Transformation Bible Notes help readers see Christ in all of Scripture. Every text, seen in its redemptive context, is reflecting an aspect of humanity’s fallen condition that requires the grace of God.
- Each book has helpful, in-depth Introductions as well as book and passage outlines.
- Multiple cross references are included in the gospel-illuminating notes. A full topical index and daily Bible reading plan complete this work.
- Written by a team of over 50 outstanding pastors and scholars, this specially prepared material has a message for all.
- These notes are designed to be used with the ESV Bible; however, notes will sync with the Bible of your choice.

Biblical Exegesis Guides from Gordon Fee & Douglas Stewart
We are separated from the message of the Bible by time, culture and language. These three barriers create significant challenges for any pastor or Bible student who wants to responsibly take the original message of Scripture, properly understand it, and present it to a modern audience. Fortunately, two of the premier Evangelical standard treatments on exegesis have just been released for Accordance.
Now in its third edition, Gordon Fee’s New Testament Exegesis is the Evangelical guide for going from the New Testament text to accurate exposition. Beginning with basic principles for writing a seminary or Bible college exegesis paper, Gordon Fee—Professor Emeritus of New Testament Studies at Regent College in Vancouver, Canada—takes the reader step-by-step through the process of exegesis. Attention is given to genre, historical context, grammar, and historical-cultural backgrounds.
It’s the method described here that is so extremely helpful, but this method does not have to end with a student’s graduation. It’s no great secret that the responsibilities and busy life of a pastor often lead to shortcuts when performing the exegetical task of preparing a sermon. Fee takes his method beyond the classroom straight to the pastor’s study.
In the section titled, “Short Guide for Sermon Exegesis,” the principles in the book are applied to sermon preparation. Acknowledging the pastor’s limited amount of time, Fee even offers suggested time allotments to each of the steps such as one hour for contextual questions, fifty minutes to examine the secondary literature, and forty minutes for application.
Whether you are a pastor preparing Sunday’s sermon or a seminary student writing an exegesis paper, this book is an indispensable guide.
New Testament Exegesis
A Handbook for Students & Pastors
For over three decades, Douglas Stuart, Professor of Old Testament at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, has been helping pastors and students accurately exegete the Old Testament. Now in its fourth edition, Old Testament Exegesis is essential for responsible exposition of the Hebrew Bible, bridging the Ancient Near Eastern culture to our modern context.
Stuart’s 12-step method for exegesis will bring recovery from bad habits and sloppy hermeneutics. In fact, Stuart has an appendix describing frequent hermeneutical errors that alone might be worth regular review. And his “List of Common Old Testament Exegesis Terms” makes this title accessible even to the non-specialist. As with Fee’s book, Stuart also includes a section that applies his exegetical method to the pastor’s sermon.
Although there are some common principles between the two, both books together serve to give special attention to the nuances and distinctions of both biblical testaments. The reader will find both of these books extremely helpful because the authors use specific examples from the Bible to illustrate their steps. The reader will quickly discover that these books are not dry books detailing method. Rather, they are filled with real-world examples that allow the reader to learn more about the Bible, while learning how to learn more about the Bible!
