Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Continuing a Gold Medallion Award-winning legacy, this completely revised edition of The Expositor's Bible Commentary series puts world-class biblical scholarship in your hands. Based on the original twelve-volume set that has become a staple in college and seminary libraries and pastors' studies worldwide, this new thirteen-volume edition marshals the most current evangelical scholarship and resources. You'll find up-to-date information grounded in the same unchanging commitment to the divine inspiration, complete trustworthiness, and full authority of the Bible. Of the fifty-six contributors, thirty of them are new. Reflecting the Expositor's Bible Commentary international and cross-denominational approach, they come from the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Australia, and New Zealand, and from a broad diversity of churches, including Anglican, Baptist, Brethren, Methodist, Nazarene, Presbyterian, and Reformed. The Expositor's Bible Commentary uses the complete New International Version for its English text, but it also refers freely to other translations and to the original languages. For each book of the Bible, the thoroughly revised features consist of: A comprehensive introduction A short and precise bibliography A detailed outline Insightful exposition of passages and verses Overviews of sections of Scripture to illumine the big picture Occasional reflections to give more detail on important issues Notes on textual questions and special problems, placed close to the text in question Transliteration and translation of Hebrew and Greek words, enabling readers to understand even the more technical notes A balanced and respectful approach toward marked differences of opinion

I bought this volume hoping to get good and brief commentaries on NT documents. Expositor's Bible commentaries are always faithful to the text of the Scripture. You can trust the authors because the authors are conservative Bible scholars from worldwide evangelical community. I have old volumes of Expositor's Bible Commentary, they are also very good. But this new volume is even better because it is revised. Commentaries on Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Pastoral Epistles are rewritten by modern Bible scholars, but commentaries on 1,2 Thessalonians and Philemon are revised and expanded. The authors use modern commentaries, theological articles from journals etc. The most helpful commentary is on Patoral Epistles by A. Kostenberger. It is worthy to buy this volume because of this author. Expositor's Bible Commentary is very good for expository preaching and Bible teaching preparation. You will not feel Calvinist-Arminian debates. It is a good volume and very useful for everyone who wants solid commentaries on the biblical text.

Another in an excellent set of exegetical, scholarly commentaries. The layman will find this to be not quite "user friendly", but if you are in seminary or Bible college, your instructor will certainly allow you to use this in your bibliography. Impeccable academic work.

The Expositor's Bible Commentary Revised Edition
Ephesians - Philemon
Tremper Longman III & David E. Garland, General Editors

The Expositor's Bible Commentary Revised Edition (EBC-R) seeks to provide "a comprehensive yet succinct commentary that guides one to the gist of the test's meaning." This is where this commentary series excels. The EBC-R will provide its reader with a good overview of the text and its meaning. There are nine books of the Bible covered in this volume (12 of 13) by six different authors (1 & 2 Thessalonians are grouped together as well as 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus). The translation used is the NIV, which is pretty standard for most commentaries.

Each book contains an introduction written by the author containing general background information regarding the book. The bibliography is included in this section which is helpful as it provides the reader with additional commentaries to read as well as knowing where some of the author's research and thoughts come from. The layout of the commentary makes it very easy to read. Each section of Scripture is written in bold with a grey background and is single column, making it easy to find a particular verse quickly. The commentary section follows and is double columned, with bold verse numbers at the start of each commentary section for a particular verse. There are also a Notes section and a Reflections section that contains some extra thoughts. The layout is different from other commentaries that I have read, but once I got used to it I appreciated how easy it was to navigate.

As for the commentary itself, the EBC-R is very readable for pastors and laymen.

This is so informative, that it really slowed down my bible study! Ha! I found that I couldn't procrastinate on my bible study because if I put it off to the last minute, I would get so absorbed in this commentary that I wouldn't get all of my study completed in time for class! (I copied and pasted this review from my review of Romans-Galatians because it is true of both volumes).
