    I'm working my way through the New Testament with commentaries written by Warren Wiersbe. So far, it has been an enlightening journey. Weirsbe's writing helps me to understand the Lord Jesus Christ more clearly, and challenges me to be my best self through faith.

    MY REVIEW Be Compassionate is a commentary that has the feel of a book. Yes, yes! I know all commentaries ARE books. But a "normal" commentary you don't sit down and read straight through. Well unless you are not "normal"! However, Wiersbe's updated "Be" series can be read through like you would do with most books. Not only can you read this book chapter-by-chapter, but there are discussion questions at the end of each chapter for group or personal dialogue to help you connect with and digest what MY REVIEW Be Compassionate is a commentary that has the feel of a book. Yes, yes! I know all commentaries ARE books. But a "normal" commentary you don't sit down and read straight through. Well unless you are not "normal"! However, Wiersbe's updated "Be" series can be read through like you would do with most books. Not only can you read this book chapter-by-chapter, but there are discussion questions at the end of each chapter for group or personal dialogue to help you connect with and digest what you just read. I enjoyed Wiersbe's verse-by-verse commentary in a story like presentation. You are not reading a small tid-bit on each verse, but rather being pulled into the big picture while learning about each individual verse. Wiersbe's Be Compassionate will make a great addition to the library of any person, young or old. BOOK OVERVIEW: The twenty-first century Christian faces unique and disturbing moral challenges that demand a great degree of Biblical wisdom and understanding in order to successfully defeat a tireless enemy. With greater and faster technology bombarding lives with an ever darkening array of moral depravity, it is essential that Christians be able to discern the enemy’s attack and answer God’s call to share truth and light both responsibly and dependably. Dr. Warren Wiersbe’s “Be” series is filled with the timeless truths of God’s Word, and his books will adequately equip today’s believers with the tools they need to reach a world in desperate need of an eternal hope. David C Cook’s latest additions to the revised “Be” series include insightful introductions by Ken Bough, updated content for today’s readers, as well as new study questions for each chapter. Each of these expositional commentaries incorporate material from Dr. Wiersbe’s “Be” series into a small group Bible study format and focus on a specific book of the Bible. This effectively updated series of books incorporates topics as they were originally presented in the “Be” books. Be Compassionate: Let the World Know That Jesus Cares uses the first thirteen chapters of Luke to explore the believer’s responsibility to tell the world that Jesus cares about them in a very personal way.

    "BE Compassionate" is a commentary on chapters 1-13 of Luke, but it's written more like a Bible study than a Bible reference book. As in, you could go to a certain chapter and verse reference and read the entry for more information, but the book was designed to be read from start to finish. The book was easy to understand and an enjoyable, quick read. With one exception, each chapter in the book covered one chapter in Luke.

The book was easy to understand and an enjoyable, quick read. With one exception, each chapter in the book covered one chapter in Luke. The author pointed out the meanings of Greek words that don't fully translate into English and background historical information that helped to bring out the full impact of the verses. There were 9 to 11 questions at the end of each chapter. Some tested to see if you remembered/understood what the author had said, but others were discussion/reflection questions about how you could apply what you had just learned. This study made me think, and I gained a lot of new insights from reading it. I didn't agree with a few of the author's conclusions, but I'm not claiming that they're wrong. I've just heard a different spin put on the events that seems to fit better, in my opinion. Overall, I'd highly recommend this book as a Bible study for those who want a deeper understanding of the Word. I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.

    Be Compassionate by Warren W. Wiersbe is the Be book covering the first half of the Gospel of Luke. Wiersbe has written a fantastic series of commentaries about each book of the Bible. Each one focuses on a specific characteristic of Christianity. In the physician Luke's writing, Wiersbe finds a message of compassion and each chapter breaks down a chapter of the Gospel, often verse by verse with interesting insight into what Jesus was saying or doing.

Wiersbe is always thoughtful and intelligent, and his writing is truly a joy for its breakthroughs in understanding. He makes the old stories come to life with fresh detail and new focus. This is a series to read again and again.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Be Compassionate is an excellent guide for the book of Luke. It divides one chapter into multiple lessons fixated on detailing certain things going on in that chapter. At the end of each chapter is a couple of questions. They are there to be answered individually or if this is used as a group study, together. This devotional reveals to the reader the depth in each word, character, and verse used in Luke. This is very enjoyable because it helps you understand what is going on even better. The writi Be Compassionate is an excellent guide for the book of Luke.

This is very enjoyable because it helps you understand what is going on even better. The writing is smooth and easy-to-understand, not chock full of difficult words and confusing sentences. It's down-to-earth and all that is said is supported by verses from the New and Old Testament. Be Compassionate covers Luke 1-13. This is not the entire book of Luke, but don't be alarmed. Be Courageous is a counterpart to Compassionate. Courageous covers Luke 14-24, so you'll need both of them to complete your in-depth study of Luke. I enjoyed reading this guide. I learned a few things I hadn't noticed the first time I read Luke from just the Bible. To me it makes it easier to remember and has helped me to understand the certain going-ons that grace the Bible's pages. If you would like to get more out of your Bible reading then DR. Wiersebe's Be Compassionate is for you.

    There's a lot of detail and biblical references, as well as a historical context of many of the stories and events that took place in the Bible. That being said I think doing a 1-2 hour long bible study every week on each chapter of the book is too quick and doesn't allow a person to process the information quickly enough. It really takes a long time to get through each chapter if you're trying to get the most out of it; just to mediate and pray about it.

    This is a great easy commentary that I have used as my intro to studying Luke. Wiersbe walks the reader through the scripture very well but also just like a Southern Baptist pastor. There are ton of small examples and metaphors to help the reader grasp what the scripture is revealing. I did not like all of them but I understand that people who are not going to dive any deeper into these passages will take this and find it revealing and just easy to understand.

    I love all of Wiersbe's study books and this is no different than all of the other books by him that I have read. Some nuggets found in this book are: "..the way people speak about Jesus Christ is evidence of what is in their hearts'" and "Jesus was moved by a divine compulsion to do the Father's will." "Resurrection is a picture of the way Jesus Christ saves lost sinners and raises them from spiritual death."

    Warren Wiersbe is the man I would call the devotional commentator - he has written numerous of these Be commentaries and they are all like devotions, rich and simple, elegant and yet without any padding or over complex natures. Not for the technical minded, and not for research purposes, simply for a devotion, and for challenge and encouragement for life. That's all you really need isn't it? Roll on the second part of Luke.

    Dr. Wiersbe makes the Bible come alive. Even well-known events, such as the birth of Jesus, become so much more vivid. Wiersbe also guides the reader through hard-to-understand passages and parables, using a writing style that can be understood. This is just one of 50 of the "Be" commentaries he wrote that cover the entire Bible. I have read several with great satisfaction. Dr. Wiersbe makes the Bible come alive.

    This book is packed with insight and wonderful commentary on the first half of the book of Luke in the Bible. Very useful tool to help gain more understanding of Jesus’ life on earth. I highly recommend all the “Be” commentaries.

    Uplifting Wiersbe takes the Scripture and helps the average person understand what God is saying. He takes the reader deeper in his or her walk with the Lord.

    I've just started this book. I love to read Dr. Wiersbe's "Be" books along with my daily reading in The Daily Bible by John MacArthur. Because several people have commented on other books in this series, I'm copying the next to last paragraph in the Introduction to each book. The words are by Ken Baugh. The people that I'm talking about have been disappointed that the books aren't deeper, more philosophical. I like them just the way they are. Here's what Baugh has to say, and I love it: "His uniq I've just started this book. I love to read Dr. Wiersbe's "Be" books along with my daily reading in The Daily Bible by John MacArthur.

Whether you’re a Bible scholar or a brand-new believer in Christ, you will benefit, as I have, from Wiersbe’s insights. With your Bible in one hand and Dr Wiersbe’s commentary in the other, you will be able to unpack the deep truths of God’s Word and learn how to apply them to your life." Wiersbe's books are just what I need in my reading and study.
