The Broadman Bible Commentary is a 13-volume commentary on the entire Bible that was first published in the 1960s. It was written for everyone with a desire to dig deeper into God's Word. This includes scholars, preachers, teachers and Bible students. The editors of this work make this clear in their preface to the series:

The Broadman Bible Commentary presents current biblical study within the context of strong faith in the authority, adequacy, and reliability of the Bible as the Word of God. It seeks to offer help and guidance to the Christian who is willing to undertake Bible study as a serious, rewarding pursuit. The publisher thus has defined the scope and purpose of the commentary to produce a work suited to the Bible study needs of both ministers and laymen. The findings of biblical scholarship are presented so that readers without formal theological education can use them in their own Bible study. Footnotes and technical words are limited to essential information.

Furthermore, the editors of this work tell us this commentary avoids current theological fads and changing theories. It concerns itself with the deep realities of God’s dealings with men, his revelation in Christ, his eternal gospel, and his purpose for the redemption of the world. It seeks to relate the word of God in Scripture and in the living Word to the deep needs of persons and to mankind in God’s world.
