A New Bible Commentary for the Global Church (Video with Michael Bird)
The Story of God Bible Commentary series may be the most diverse commentary series in evangelical history.
Listen to these comments from Michael Bird, one of the Associate Editors for the commentary's volumes on the New Testament.
The contributors to this series come from a diverse array of backgrounds. This is a broad evangelical project with an unprecedented number of women [as contributors]...
There's a real diversity. Gender…but also race, in terms of ethnic background and in terms of global experience. Because we're writing this for the global church. And I think diversity in unity is a good thing—and if you don’t believe me, go read 1 Corinthians.
It's good to get this cacophony of voices, this harmony…when you get different kinds of people together, reading Scripture, in the context of the church and the church's ancient faith. I think that brings a very rich perspective. That's what we'll have in this series.
