Subject: Time Out to Start Featuring Kretzmann's Popular Commentary


On the White Horse Inn radio show, their "man on the street" segment interviewed students at a Christian college to see if they could summarize the main theme of the Book of Galatians. Two out of 12 mentioned justification by grace and not by works.

I would have gotten that one right, but I thought about other books that I might stumble on. Other people might have the same issues, and I started asking around for pastors who might be willing to summarize or point me to some public domain commentary that I could use on Time Out.

Pastor Will Weedon of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Hamil, IL., stepped up.  He pointed me to The Kretzmann Project, home of the electronic edition of The Popular Commentary of the Bible by Paul E. Kretzmann, Ph. D., D. D.  The introductions to each book alone are filled with such good stuff, not only summarizing the content of the book but laying out Christ in the Old Testament.

The introductions will probably take another one to two minutes to read per book. It's likely that they will be included as part of the Time Out episode on Pirate Christian Radio, but they will for sure be available as part of the podcasts on the Time Out site. When the summaries are included on the podcast, I will provide a link back to the Kretzmann Project site so you can follow along.

Thank you, Pr. Weedon, and thank you big time to those who digitized The Kretzmann Project.
