Recently I was in a used bookstore (imagine that) and was engaged in conversation by a gentleman browsing through the religious section.
“What are you looking for?” he asked as I began to collect a stack of book.
“Oh, mostly good commentaries, word studies, and other helpful tools like that.” I replied as I continued my search.
In response the man looked at me rather disappointed and told me what I have been told a number of times, “I don’t use commentaries; I just use my Bible. I don’t trust other people to tell me what the Bible says."
