This book is a great study into the compassionate side of Jesus and His ministry. Not only does the book contain a great commentary to go along with the Bible Study questions in each chapter of the book but it really does take your through the book of Luke in depth. I received this book, Be Compassionate, Let the World Know That Jesus Cares, Luke 1-13 by Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe compliments of B & B Media Group for my honest review. I would easily rate this book a perfect 5 out of 5 stars for it's detail and in depth look into the book of Luke and the compassionate side of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Be Compassionate by Warren W. Wiersbe is the Be book covering the first half of the Gospel of Luke. Wiersbe has written a fantastic series of commentaries about each book of the Bible. Each one focuses on a specific characteristic of Christianity. In the physician Luke's writing, Wiersbe finds a message of compassion and each chapter breaks down a chapter of the Gospel, often verse by verse with interesting insight into what Jesus was saying or doing. Wiersbe is always thoughtful and intelligent, and his writing is truly a joy for its breakthroughs in understanding. He makes the old stories come to life with fresh detail and new focus. This is a series to read again and again.
As a new Christian, I grew up hearing Dr. Wiersbe on his Back to the Bible radio broadcast. Reading his expostional commentary is like hearing him all over again. Exciting! Dr. Wiersbe is clear and distinct in how he presents the material in his commentary. Other than some minor doctrine issues, I find his works to be diligently researched and presented historically and spiritually. He gives many examples of Jesus' and his disciples' lives, as well as many people in the Bible. Little nuggets of truth and insights have clarified some of my current lack in understanding. Maybe because his commentary is also expositional is why it makes it that much more helpful and personal. I like that he has you read Scripture first. Based on his comment, "Jesus balanced Scripture with Scripture to get the total expression of God's will," I would still prefer the questions before the commentary. I love the personal accountability and application in the questions themselves. Very relevant. I would have to say that I like the "Be" commentary series over the Bible study series. The latter, at least the one I reviewed, is good for new Christians, exceptions noted. This book was provided free by Karen from The B & B Media Group, Inc., for my honest review. I want to get the whole series!!!
