Volume 11 Romans-Galatians. Volume 12 Ephesians-Revelation. This new series was originally intended to be a digital-only series, but fortunately, they changed their minds and offered print copies for those of us who will have nothing less. This is your series for quality, exhaustive, detailed exegetical help. These early volumes lead me to believe that they will be the best in that category. They are the opposite of the succinct EBC revised series above. Brevity is of no concern, but nothing imaginable is missed.
They live up to evangelical too, and for that reason, I love them! Exodus —2 volumes. Philippians —2 volumes. Here is another rival for a commentary to reach to pastors. The series is in the early stages, but if it can continue its quality I predict it will be popular. Slightly more expensive than the NAC, but containing the same helpful qualities. Probably a good priority on your purchasing list.
Its release schedule is a little slower than I expected. Psalms Volume 1 Psalms Volume 2. This series has been around almost since Bible times or so it seems. As a series it is mostly conservative, friendly to pastors, highly respected, but was poorly managed for several years. Some of its earlier volumes which are quite good and worth picking up used were replaced decades ago.
On the other hand, several books of the Bible have never been blessed with a volume from this series. The volumes are good, but priced a little too high. This series is well worth getting, if you can find volumes reasonably priced. Newer volumes are more academic rather than aimed at pastors as was the case in its earlier history. It does hold a respected place in the scholarly world. First Samuel. Haggai and Malachi Zechariah. First Corinthians revised.
Important: Read this before proceeding
Timothy and Titus. A little more scholarly than the NAC and worth owning. My set is complete and I have used many of the volumes. While there are some duds, several volumes are held in high regard. The theological spectrum is a little too broad for my taste, though I love several volumes. The infamous layout is probably not the problem most claim since the series has been around 30 years and we are all used to it.
It actually makes it easier for the reader to skip the part pastors would find least helpful and just read the real commentary. This poor series has been snake bitten in delivering us the Acts and 1 Corinthians volumes. Good to see, though, a nearly complete series and one with a sensible revision schedule. More reasonably priced than many series. You might only want some of the volumes in this series.
Famous for archaeology and deep detail. Always fairly liberal and becoming more so with a new editor. Older volumes are easy to pick up second hand. Newer ones are priced way too high to ever have a wide readership. Sometimes you will find a detail that will amaze you and you will find nowhere else while at other times you will be horrified by what you read.
Very technical. There is a rumor this series exists but it is priced so high that they apparently were not written to actually be read. You could perhaps mortgage your home or sell a few children and pick up a few copies to rank this one for yourself. The older volumes pre can be found used. Think liberal and very technical. This fine series, edited by the eminent D. Carson, only tackles the New Testament. Pastors will find its volumes accessible and enjoyable in most cases. I own and have used about half of them.
It is not complete either and I will never understand why its Romans volume by the preeminent scholar Leon Morris would be replaced before we get the first volume on several books of the New Testament. Another series with a little too-high pricing structure, but one you will enjoy having and likely the very best for a series only on the NT. My appreciation grows with every volume I review. Colossians and Philemon. A series that lacks the fame of the above series, though some are ranked high.
I have the two volumes of Luke and the one on Matthew that are good as well as a few others. Not priced as well as some. At this point, I do not rank as high as the other series above. Still, you will probably want several of the volumes. This is a major series. For that reason, scholars may love it more than pastors. Still, it is impressive. I Corinthians. II Corinthians. This is a fine series. On the technical side it seems a little below the Word Biblical Commentary series but far better on commentary.
Worth checking out, though some volumes may be less conservative than others from reports I have seen. Still, my opinion rises with every new volume I get! A slower release schedule than I expected. I have only used the volume on Proverbs and it is really good. The other volumes have a good reputation though some have thought the 3 volumes on Psalms went farther left than expected. Only covers five books of the Bible, but the series is complete. Other Major Series: My experience with the Hermeneia and Old Testament Library series is that they will not please pastors with their overly technical and liberal offerings.
Eerdmans Critical Commentaries are somewhat similar to the Anchor series and will not get much love. The digital-only format they have now switched to will drive away even more. Not only will Sunday School teachers use these types of volumes, but pastors may find them good to arrive at the big picture, or to pick up a few more hints.
These are exceptional and I can recommend to anyone. The OT volumes are being reassigned. These are a real help.

Work at getting them all. I have loved my complete sets. Several OT volumes have recently been revised and I find them especially helpful. The NT is under revision as well. Judges and Ruth Esther Psal ms. Another outstanding set with some really good contributors. The series is now complete and economical. I enjoy these commentaries and am glad my set is complete. I recommend them all.
Think help with application with solid scholarly foundation. Far better on the whole than others of its kind. This old series from the late s and early s is well worth looking up on the used market. Solid as the Tyndale series and you will enjoy having both. Here is a critical perspective. I disagree with many conclusions here, but there are many theological insights.
Most volumes read well. Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah. Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi. Watch for this new, exciting series. I highly recommend what I have seen so far. Romans Romans 1 Samuel Titus. This is really two sets. He shunned the allegorical method. He believed that all of the Psalms were written by David, which forced him into some peculiar interpretations. His commentary on the minor epistles of Paul have been preserved complete in Lat.

The commentaries of the Fathers of the Church down to the beginning of the 7th cent. As a corollary, they recognized that their own writings were definitely inferior in authority and penetration to the NT. Again, they insisted that the entire Bible belongs to Christian believers, even though the OT is primarily Jewish and concerns Jewish history and law.
The writings of the Fathers were uniformly Christocentric. There was a heavy emphasis on allegory, and a deep interest in eschatological themes. Although there were commentaries now lost which included almost all the books of the Bible, those most frequently considered were Genesis, Psalms, the Song of Solomon, the prophetic books, the gospels of Matthew and John, the epistles of Paul, and Revelation. The existence of these commentaries indicates a great passion in the Early Church for Biblical study which exceeded even that for the defense of the Christian faith in the numerous controversies of that period.
The Middle Ages. The commentators of the Middle Ages were for the most part not gifted with great originality. Undoubtedly the most important of them between Augustine and the beginning of the 12th cent. He devoted his entire life to the study of the Scriptures, and though his works have been carefully studied by numerous scholars, many of them still remain untranslated from the Lat. His commentary on Genesis was taken largely from Basil, Ambrose, and Augustine.
As a commentator in the first half of the 12th cent. Bernard of Clairvaux had an extraordinarily intimate knowledge of the Scriptures, and has been designated by some as the last of the Fathers. It was the Song of Solomon. Bernard published eighty-six sermons on the Song of Solomon with the threefold interpretation of historical, moral, and mystical. The monastery at St. Victor was the chief home of medieval mysticism. There Hugo of St. Victor and Andrew of St. Victor d. Andrew wrote extensive commentaries on the Octateuch, frequently quoting from Origen, Augustine, and Jerome, and extensively from his predecessor, Hugo.
He wrote also on the major prophetical volumes, the Song of Solomon, and Ecclesiastes. At the end of the 12th cent. Stephen Langton, the Archbishop of Canterbury, wrote glosses on the Octateuch in which he referred frequently to Andrew of St. Victor, the result of lectures given in the schools at Paris. He wrote also on most of the prophets and on the Song of Solomon. The most famous of all Biblical writers in the Middle Ages was Thomas Aquinas , though his theological works were far more extensive, and certainly more influential, than his commentaries.
It has been estimated that in his Catena of the Gospels he quoted from twenty-two Gr. He wrote commentaries on Isaiah, Jeremiah, the Psalms, Job, and esp. Because he was under the domination of the idea that all Scriptures had four different meanings, he did not advance an understanding of them despite all of his vast learning. He was fully acquainted with Jewish expositors. His famous work, Postillae Perpetuae in Universam S. Scripturam , which was the first Biblical commentary to be printed, had a wide influence. The Reformation.

With the coming of the Reformation, this basically important area of Christian lit. Luther and Calvin made a revolutionary return to the study and interpretation of the Holy Scriptures based on their literal meaning and emphasizing the preeminent theme of Christ in both the OT and NT. Luther insisted on the necessity for grammatical knowledge and on a serious consideration of the times and circumstances in which a book was composed, on the need of faith for understanding the Scriptures and on the preeminence of Christ in both the OT and NT. His commentaries on Genesis and the Psalms are classics of the classical age.
