You may find it difficult to find a commentary series with balance. Some commentaries are focused on studying the original language or higher criticisms which may be difficult to apply to your life. Other commentaries are very easy to apply to your life, but they lack depth. The Christian Focus Commentaries is an excellent balance for the needs of those in the pulpit and the pews, the serious students and for your everyday Christian walk.  
Revelation - Gardner - Retail $19.99
It is ironical that a book called 'the revelation' remains probably the most obscure of all the books of the Bible. Many Christians have never ventured further than the first 3 chapters, others have studied its intricacies - and the split churches that resulted wished that they hadn't! This commentary will take you a little deeper and stimulate thinking about how the teaching should be applied to the modern church. 'This is a brilliant commentary that deserves a wide readership. It is lucid, sane, helpful and well applied Revelation is a book of enormous encouragement to Christians and it needs deliverance from the way it has been misused by many.
1 & 2 Thessalonians - Mayhue - Retail $19.99 , 240 pages
Paul's first letter was written to encourage and reassure the Christians in Thessalonica. He gives thanks for their faith and love; reminds them of his example on godly living and answers questions about the return of Christ. In his second letter we find Paul still dealing with confusion over the return of Christ, especially with those that believed that the Lord's coming had already arrived. He also shows that evil and wickedness will reach a crescendo under the leadership of a mysterious figure called 'the wicked one'. He tells them to remain steady in all that they have learnt.
1 & 2 Timothy & Titus - Milne - Retail $19.99 , 244 pages
Paul's letters to Timothy and Titus commonly called the Pastoral Epistles, are paul's last letters before his martyrdom. Although written in the first century, they are very relevant for chruch life today. Contemporary issues such as the inspiration and authority of scripture, the characteristics of church leaders, the role of women, and the nature of holiness were high on Paul's priority list to be passed on to his sons in the faith.
Hebrews - Riggans - Retail $19.99
Hebrews was written to challenge and encourage professing Jewish believers who were considering abandoning the Christian faith and returning to the Jewish religion. Throughout his work, the unknown author shows how Christ is superior to all that the OT offered, including prophets, the High Priest, the Levitical sacrificial system and the Old Covenant. In Christ, all believers have Jesus to be the ultimate Prophet, Priest, and King, who gives to them all the blessings of the new covenant. At the same time as showing that Christ is superior to the OT system the author also shows that in fact the prophets and other men of faith in the OT are actually united to Christians and not to followers of the Jewish faith.
James - Derek Prime - Retail $19.99
Practical, down to earth, full of pithy comments the letter of James is one which we often find too accurate for comfort. He warns us about the way we speak to one another and about orders. We are reminded of the need to show love in practical forms. Empty religion is contrasted with whole hearted commitment to God. This is a letter to Christians which demands a visible response.
1st Peter - Cleave - Retail $19.99
1st Peter was written by the Apostle Peter to encourage believers for whom the storm clouds of persecution were gathering, just because they were Christians. To encourage them he first reminds them that suffering is temporary, and that faithful living in times of suffering will produce eternal benefits. He develops this theme to show that such a lifestyle, lived out in difficult and dangerous circumstances, is an effective witness to unbelievers, and will result in church growth - the very opposite effect intended by those who persecuted them.
2nd Peter & Jude - Gardner - Retail $19.99 , 240 pages
2nd Peter was widely circulated throughout the early church to warn people to watch out for the false teachers that were appearing in the church, Leading to immorality and the loss of its witness. Peter was very concerned that those who say that Christ will not return should not make the church feel that Christ has abandoned them. Jude theme is similar and also points the church towards the evidence of believers who heard Jesus 'to fight on for the faith which once and for all God has given to his people'.
1st, 2nd & 3rd John - Eaton - Retail $19.99 , 244 pages
Eaton believes that John's Epistles were written to counteract false teachers who were influencing Christians in the church. An exposition of these epistles could not be more timely as often people who come to Christ today have little or no church background-they can be easily influenced by false teaching. John showed in his letters that the most secure way to avoid being deceived was the importance of having a present experience of knowing the Father and the Son. Michael eaton brings out this balanced approach to help give us healty and fruitful church members.
