Enduring Word exists to promote the work of Christian discipleship and evangelism worldwide, mainly through the publication and dissemination of the Bible teaching work of David Guzik and likeminded people.
When David Guzik was a young pastor in Simi Valley, California, he (among many other pastors) was asked to send his teaching notes to the developers of a new internet Bible research site: Blue Letter Bible. In the late 1990’s, David’s material first appeared on the Blue Letter Bible, and was found to be a valuable resource.
David’s Bible resources – both in text and through audio and video – are used by many thousands of people every day. Many pastors, Bible teachers, and everyday Christians find these materials helpful.

The best Bible commentary
I’m so thankful the Pastor David Guzik’s Bible commentary is now available as an app. Throughout years of preaching, David kept meticulous notes on the Scriptures he discussed. In recent years he completed the entire Bible and offered them free on line. A pastor at our church introduced me to his commentary and it’s been an essential part of my Bible reading for nearly a decade. Thorough, cross-referenced, understandable and uncompromising yet loving, Enduring Word is the best commentary I have found. Yes, the app has some technical areas for improvement which I’m sure he’ll fix (keep in mind it’s essentially a one-person operation). But it’s much more important for the content to be out there for mobile devices.
Doesn’t seem like the write believes in the Bible as Truth but rather a “possibility”
So I was originally excited to start using this app to study the word even deeper, but after reading John 14 and then using this to dive deeper into the word and see what this had to say I was instantly taking back on what was written. For example for commentary on the verse when Jesus says “No one comes to the Father except through Me.” The app has a comment under that saying “ Jesus made this remarkable statement, claiming that He was the only way to God.”
Claiming?!?! Why if you are a believer writing this, why would you say Jesus “claimed,” something as if there is a possibility that Jesus isn’t actually telling or speaking the very truth?!? This was just one example that the many times through the whole chapter the commentary said Jesus “claims” something rather then saying Jesus “said” or “told” us something. A lot of the commentary almost seems as if the writer and creator isn’t even sure if what Jesus said is truly the word of God. I have never giving a written review for any app but I am so sorry I just feel like I can’t even trust using this as a reference for when studying something in the Bible that I’m unfamiliar with or anything in general because the writer honestly doesn’t seem to have written things out in a way that would come off as a true believer in the words of Jesus.
Love this app and how it breaks down each verse. My only wish was that when you book Mark a certain book and chapter, if you were also able to 1. Label each bookmark ie.. Rapture, or Parable of the Sower etc so you know looking at the bookmark what it’s for.
2. If you were able to highlight so that when you do bookmark you can see the exact verse you’re interested in. That would be AMAZING! I have bookmarks and I honestly don’t know why I have them. I have to go into each one and scroll up and down the whole page to refresh my memory as to why I initially was interested in that chapter.
