Bible, N.T. Commentary
  CPI | Jun 30, 2016 |
The award-winning Expositor's Bible Commentary, now available in this handy softcover edition, has established itself as one of the leading and most practical evangelical commentaries. Written for pastors and Bible students, it is scholarly and comprehensive without being overly academic. The seventy-eight contributors of The Expositor's Bible Commentary are committed to the complete trustworthiness and full authority of the Bible. They come from the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Australia, and New Zealand, and represent many denominations, including Anglican, Baptist, Brethren, Methodist, Nazarene, Presbyterian, and Reformed. In matters where marked differences of opinion exist, the contributors state their own convictions and deal fairly and without animosity with opposing views. The Expositor's Bible Commentary is based on the New International Version of the Bible, but may be used with any translation. Greek and Hebrew words have been transliterated to make the material accessible to readers unfamiliar with the biblical languages. Technical questions and textual issues are briefly dealt with in notes at the end of each section.

Good scholarship, hard to build a message on. Takes time to learn how to use properly. ( )

The first commentary set in which a preacher should invest, the Expositor's Bible Commentary offers a good starting place for work on a passage. Also an excellent resource for lay leadership and those leading bible studies and small groups, passages are dealt with succinctly and with little overdeveloped comment. The trade off is that while major issues are noted and receive comment, the real depth of textual questions is often left somewhat unexplored. Occasionally the commentary can leave one wondering why more can't be said about a passage, but of course the limit of 12 volumes means that only introductory matters can be discussed. ( )

For more than 20 years, the EBC has been widely recognized by preachers, teachers, and laypeople as one of the best commentaries available. Each Bible book features an insightful introduction, detailed outline, penetrating theological and critical exposition, and useful bibliography. Notes on textual difficulties are kept separate and all Hebrew and Greek is transliterated. Esteemed evangelical contributors include Walter Kaiser on Exodus, D.A. Carson on Matthew, Merrill C. Tenney on John, Richard Longenecker on Acts, James Montgomery Boice on Galatians, and Ralph Earle on 1 & 2 Timothy. An excellent resource.
