Timeless Wisdom from Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe
for a New Generation of Christians
David C Cook releases eight revised editions of
Dr. Wiersbe’s trusted Bible commentaries—the “BE” Series
For the past four decades, the widely popular “BE” series, a set of more than 50 Bible studies by Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe, has sold over four million copies and led untold numbers deeper in their walks with God. This summer, a new generation of readers will have the opportunity to discover the best-selling commentaries as David C Cook introduces an updated and revised edition of eight volumes of the “BE” series.
A man who has given his life to a deep examination of the Word of God, Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe is an internationally known Bible teacher, former pastor of The Moody Church in Chicago, and the author of more than 150 books. For ten years he was associated with the Back to the Bible radio broadcast, first as Bible teacher and then as general director. Dubbed by many as the “pastor’s pastor,” Dr. Wiersbe skillfully weaves Scripture with historical explanations and thought-provoking questions, communicating the Word in such a way that the masses grasp its relevance for today.
Easily accessible for both pastors and lay people alike, Wiersbe’s profound study guides can be used in personal Bible study or with a group. David C Cook’s third installment of eight revised “BE” series volumes each feature updated content for today’s readers, a new introduction by Ken Baugh, and new study questions for each chapter.

David C Cook/June 2009MY REVIEW
Be Hopeful is a good bible study book. I found it to be relatively easy to read and understand. Wiersbe's writing seems to be theologically sound and he offers the reader many practical applications to his teaching. Each chapter ends with discussion/personal reflection questions which I found helpful in processing what I had just read. This book would be a good choice for small group bible studies.
