About Best Bible Commentaries
Best Bible Commentaries was born out of a love for books that help people understand the Bible, especially commentaries. Over the years, many of my undergraduate students have found it humorous when I describe myself as a “commentary nerd,” which is meant to be funny, but it is also a badge I wear honorably because it describes my passion for the wonderful resources that God has graciously given the Church.
My heart beats for Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. I do my best to live out my faith as a husband to my wife of 17 years and as a father to my four children; as I serve as an elder at my church; and in my role at a Christ-centered university.
I am a graduate of Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon, and a member of the Evangelical Theological Society. I have been in Christian ministry over 20 years, serving in local churches as a Lead Pastor, Associate Pastor, and as a Youth Pastor. I have taught 22 different undergraduate courses in Bible, theology, and other subjects at two evangelical universities. For five years I served as a writer and editor on Christianity for a major religion website, a role I stepped from last year, in part, to develop Best Bible Commentaries.

1. Can you explain your no-ad commitment?
I have decided not to show ads on BBC for two reasons: (1) to maximize a positive user experiences for my readers, and (2) because revenue is not what drove the creation of this website. While this means I personally have out-of-pocket costs to sustain this website, I consider this a ministry.
2. Is there a way I can support the efforts of BBC?
Most of the links I provide go to Amazon and if readers purchase books through those links, I receive a small commission (around 3-4%; e.g. a $25 book would net me about 0.75 cents).
3. Can I partner with you in ministry?
Yes. BBC desires to build relationships with authors, publishers, pastors, professors, readers, and other ministry-minded webmasters. Other than advertisements, BBC is open to creative ways to partner with other Christ-honoring ministries and websites if it aids the user experience.
4. Can I republish articles or interviews from BBC on my website or in my publication?
All rights are reserved. Partial quotations are permissible with full hyperlinked citation. Please contact me at the email address above with additional questions.
5. I am an author, can I participate in a Q & A? I am a pastor, can I participate in a Q & A?
