  • A verse by verse commentary on the epistle. A useful addition is the appendix showing all the links between 1 Peter and the Gospel accounts, highlighting the lasting impact of the Lord Jesus on Peter’s mind.

  • Bro. David helps us delve into the significance of the text of Amos. In doing so he brings to light many expositional gems for our contemplation. But this is more than just a very useful and contemplative commentary; it is also a book of challenging exhortation. Liberally sprinkled through the book are brief essays which suggest applications of Amos” message for the modern reader, many of which address topical issues of concern to brothers and sisters around the world today. This commentary is therefore an excellent supply of both detailed exposition and practical encouragement.

  • The Acts of the Apostles forms a bridge between the Gospels and the Epistles. Imagine a New Testament without Acts! We would have no context in which to understand the origin of the Epistles, those letters from the apostles addressed to ecclesias, the foundations of which would be a mystery and the lives of authors mostly unknown. Acts traces the progress of the spread of the Gospel – from the initial proclamation at Pentecost by Peter and the Twelve in Jerusalem to the arrival of Paul in Rome. We are told nothing of the “acts” of most of the apostles. Nine of the twelve are not heard of individually after Chapter 1. In reality, Acts gives an account of the early work of Peter and, to a much lesser extent John. The greater part is then devoted to Paul, who was not one of the original Twelve. This scholarly yet readily accessible, study of the Acts of the Apostles takes the reader sequentially through the book. Studies are aided by the use of maps, tables, sixty “digressions”, and colour photographs depicting many of the locations visited by the apostles. Watch the author introduce his book on YouTube!

  • This contains twelve chapters (matching those of the book of Daniel) interspersed with various appendices on particular subjects. The commentary concludes with a few charts giving the historical background and details of visions.

  • This booklet is intended as a brief introduction to the main prophetical chapters (2, 7, 8 & 11) of the book of Daniel. Having been out of print for many years, it is now reprinted with the original black and white illustrations having been replaced by lively, colour depictions of the symbols in the prophecies, as well as colour maps.

  • An exposition of the last three chapters of Daniel’s prophecy. This final prophecy reveals a broad sweep across the centuries until the coming of Messiah, who will end the conflicts and sufferings of Daniel’s people, the Jews.

  • The long journey from Egypt to the Land of Canaan lasted forty years, and the generation that was brought by God’s power out of Egypt died in the wilderness. The new generation stood on the threshold of the Promised Land where Moses spoke words of comfort, warning and encouragement. These great declarations of God’s purpose with His people have been preserved in the fifth book of the Bible, Deuteronomy. The generation that is now waiting to enter the kingdom when the Lord Jesus returns can learn much from Moses’ exhortation. It is a message about the holiness of God and the relationship He seeks with men and women of faith.

  • In ten essays, Bro. Sargent guides the reader through the book of Ecclesiastes, revealing both the underlying structures of the book and its recurring themes. Ecclesiastes investigates the value of human existence, with its bewildering mix of happiness and struggle, and its inevitable end in death. The conclusion of the matter? 'Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man”. The second study is on four of the key questions in the book of Job: Does Job fear God for nothing? What is the object of a person’s life if all they experience is suffering? What role does Elihu play? Who is speaking in chapter 27? In answering these questions, other questions arise which shed light on the book as a whole. The third study is on the two female personifications in the early chapters of the book of Proverbs. On the one hand is the Strange Woman, the symbol of human folly. On the other is Wisdom, she is the symbol of God’s mind, word and purpose. In the two women we see our choice: life and death. 

  • There are a number of different views within the Christadelphian community on what is meant by “Edom” in latter-day prophecies. In this book, Bro. Allfree suggests Edom represents Israel’s hostile neighbours. As well as giving his evidence for this theory, he respectfully suggests why other theories may not fit the relevant Biblical texts as precisely.
