Review

'...excellent series...a valuable reference source in any evangelical pastor's library. -- The Evangelical Beacon <br><br> (The Evangelical Beacon )

From the Back Cover

The Expositor's Bible Commentary is a major contribution to the study and understanding of the Scriptures. Its seventy-eight contributors come from the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Australia, and New Zealand, and from many denominations, including Anglican, Baptist, Brethren, Methodist, Nazarene, Presbyterian, and Reformed. They represent the best in evangelical scholarship committed to the divine inspiration, complete trustworthiness, and full authority of the Bible. This reference work provides pastors and other Bible students with a comprehensive and scholarly tool for the exposition of the Scriptures and the teachings and proclamation of their message. The English text used in The Expositor's Bible Commentary is the NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION (North American Edition), though contributors refer to other translations and to the original languages. Each book of the Bible has, in addition to its exposition, an introduction, outline, and bibliography. Notes on textual questions and special problems are correlated with the expository units; transliteration and translation of the Semitic and Greek words make the more technical notes accessible to readers unacquainted with the biblical languages. In matters where marked differences of opinion exist, commentators, while stating their own convictions, deal fairly and irenically with opposing views.

Here we have the essential - and i mean, Essential - commentary set for every Christian.
The Exegesis and lauguage study is top-notch; just the commentary on Jeremiah by Dr.Feinberg is worth the price. Dr. Sailhamer's Genesis commentary is just outstanding as well.
If you want a commentary that will give you the MEAT of the Word of God, this is the one to buy.
I wish I had time to comment on each book, but I would suggest that the first volume of general articles will give you a good idea about how incredibly Christ-centered and Godly this series is.

23 of 23 people found the following review helpful By David C. Leaumont on October 22, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This commentary set was recommended during my seminary hermeneutics course. After purchasing a mixed selection of major scholarly commentaries, and a couple of more homiletically focused commentaries, the Expositor's Bible Commentary is quickly becoming the first source I go to for study and preparation.

The OT set comes with a superb introductory volume that discusses scholarly topics, such as inerrancy, criticisms, hermeneutics and other topics by leading scholars in the field. It is not OT-specific, and discusses biblical theology, then OT and NT related issues. This first volume in this 12 volume set is immensely valuable. Like the NT set, this set is written by top scholars for their given specialty. In this introductory volume, Hoehner writes on the Intertestamental period, Kaiser and Gleason write on the theology and chronology of the OT, Fee on textual criticisms, and Guthrie on historical criticism, to name a few. In all, the first volume has 36 articles encompassing nearly 700 pages.

Like the NT set, the OT volumes contain detailed introductions specific for each of the 39 books. For instance, Isaiah has a 23 page discussion on the introduction of the first Gospel that discusses criticisms, history, authorship, date, purpose, themes, three major methods used in exegetical approach and a detailed bibliography. Each book has a similar introduction associated.

The text is based on the NIV, but those who are critical of the NIV should not necessarily be turned off by this, since the commentary relies more heavily on the language behind the text. The text is taken in verse segments based on contextual ties and complexity.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By O. E. Hoskin on May 28, 2008
Format: Hardcover
The series, like the NT counterpart volumes, presents a well balanced theological, thoroughly researched and historical perspective of the scriptures. The commentaries also include the Jewish "zeitgeist" of the life and times and take cognizance of the ancient Rabbis' views as well where appropriate. If only more preachers, teachers and pew sitters would graduate from the "milk to the meat" by reading and considering commentaries like these, then the church universal would take a giant step forward in achieving its historical mission.
