Be Available - OT Commentary on Judges: Book Review

About The Book:

Picture a world where people live according to their own personal standards, where believers can't seem to agree, and where people are trapped in every kind of sin. Sound familiar? While this list hits close to home, these issues are found in the book of Judges. And it's during times like these where God is searching for those who are ready, willing, and available to confront the enemy.

Part of Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe's best-selling "BE" commentary series, BE Available has now been updated with study questions and a new introduction by Ken Baugh. A respected pastor and Bible teacher, Dr. Wiersbe shares that God's kingdom advances through those who are available to Him. Based on the book of Judges, this study encourages us to stand for what's right, and step into what God is doing in our world.

About The Author:

Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe is an internationally known Bible teacher and the former pastor of three churches, including the Moody Church in Chicago. For ten years he served as general director and Bible teacher for the Back to the Bible radio broadcast. Dr. Wiersbe has written more than 150 books, including the popular "Be" series of expositional Bible studies, which has sold more than four million copies. In 2002, he was awarded the Jordon Lifetime Achievement Award by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. He and his wife, Betty, live in Lincoln, Nebraska.

My Review:

I often have a hard time reading the books of the Old Testament. Not because I don't like them, but because I find them harder to apply to my life as compared to the New Testament. Until now. Be Available by Warren Wiersbe has been a welcome addition to my Bible Reference collection. It has made reading the book of Judges very enjoyable, and has helped me learn a lot in a very short time. Each chapter studies between one and three chapters of Judges and includes discussion questions to use for individual or group study. 
If you are looking for a way to study through the Bible with an easy to read and understand reference set, I highly recommend Be Available and any of the rest of the  "BE" Commentary Series. A great product for any pastor, scholar of Bible College student.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.

BUY IT: You can purchase Be Available by Warren Wiersbe online through David C. Cook - it is also available through your local Christian bookseller
