The Standard Lesson Commentary (SLC) has been the world's most popular annual Bible commentary for over two decades. Experience 52 weeks of study in a single volume with thorough Bible study filled with relevant examples and questions. In this edition you will find printed Scripture, verse-by verse explanations of the Bible text, detailed lesson background, a pronunciation guide for challenging words, discussion starters, and a review quiz for each quarter.
This edition of the SLC, developed for use with the King James Version Bible, is based on the popular Uniform Series, also known as the International Sunday School Lessons (ISSL). This series, made by scholars from many different church fellowships, outlines an in-depth study of the Bible over a six-year period.
The four primary themes for the 2021-2022 study are:
- Celebrating God (Exodus, 2 Samuel, Psalms, Mark, Acts, Revelation)
- Justice, Law, History (Pentateuch, 2 Samuel, Ezra, Job, Isaiah, Nahum)
- God Frees and Redeems (Deuteronomy, Ezra, Matthew, John, Romans, Galatians)
- Partners in a New Creation (Isaiah, John, Revelation)
The SLC makes a wonderful primary resource for an adult Sunday school class, personal Bible study, or as a supplemental resource for any curriculum following the ISSL/Uniform Series. Nearly two dozen ministers, teachers, and Christian education specialists lend their expertise to SLC, making it the most popular annual Bible commentary available.
