About You Can Understand the Bible: Study Guide Commentary Series (Old and New Testaments, see below)
While teaching hermeneutics in an OMS seminary in Haiti, God spoke to Bob's heart about providing his Bible studies free to the world.

He structured this verse by verse and passage by passage commentary to provide an in-depth resource for churches, pastors and lay people. Dr. Utley provides scholarly and even technical commentary without losing a non-scholarly audience. While Dr. Utley uses word studies to examine context and original language, no knowledge of Greek or Hebrew is expected from the reader. This commentary is designed to be understood by everyone!

Dr. Utley emphasizes the original author's intent, by analyzing and discussing:
  • context,
  • history,
  • word studies,
  • grammar,
  • genre and
  • parallel passages.
With over 70 megabytes of data (uncompressed) and 23 volumes of commentary, you're likely to find commentary on the verses important to you during your Bible study.

However, Dr. Utley will not tell you what to believe. Dr. Utley writes, "you are responsible for your own interpretation of the Bible". That's because this commentary study guide provides you the background information, exegesis, word studies, and interpretation options (when applicable) for arriving at your own interpretation of passages.

Most Chapter Comments contain Dr. Utley's Discussion Questions, aimed at helping you further your Bible Study.

Many attempts have been made over the years to create modules from Dr. Utley's content. Most are rough copy and paste modules, resulting in a format not easy to use.

This module is different because 1) We used the XML data provided by Dr. Utley's technical team and 2) We re-created the layout, line spacing, indentions, and paragraph formatting found in Dr. Utley's commercial text as sold elsewhere.

Remember to check the Chapter Comments for Dr. Utley's Chapter Outlines and Discussion Questions.

About Dr. Bob Utley
Bob Utley is a dynamic and inspirational Bible professor. He feels that the Lord has given him a gift of relating to all types of people, especially those who have been turned off by "religiosity." Bob was born in 1947 in Houston, Texas. He is married to the former Peggy Rutta and they have three children and six grandchildren. He has earned degrees from East Texas Baptist College, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and has done post-graduate work at Baylor University, Wycliffe Bible Translators' Summer Institute of Linguistics, and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He has pastored several churches in Texas. Currently Bob conducts revivals and Bible conferences both in the United States and abroad.

Dr. Utley believes the Great Commission (cf. Matt. 28:18-20; Luke 24:46-47; Acts 1:8) mandates both evangelism and discipleship. Bob has been involved in both of these for more than 35 years. He has participated in at least 35 international evangelistic crusades where thousands of people trusted Christ. Although these crusades were wonderful evangelistic experiences, a lack of follow-up materials for discipleship was evident to him. God's will is for disciples, not decisions only! He saw the absence of Bible studies resources in other countries that were affordable and of good quality. This was a burden on his heart and he was willing to help remedy this problem.

Dr. Utley's resume and other credentials are available here. Dr. Utley's statement of faith explains his theological perspective.
