'...a roaring success. Both form and style contribute to readability, and the scholarship is sound without being pedantic or tedious...' (Christianity Today)
'...a very helpful addition to the library of anyone interested in studying and teaching the Scriptures more effectively.' (The Seminary Review)
'...excellent series...a valuable reference source in any evangelical pastor's library.' (The Evangelical Beacon)
'...one of the greatest pieces of religious literature published in this generation. We cannot recommend it too highly.' (Pulpit Workshop)
'For those needing a good commentary, you will find in this set one of the best.' (The Baptist Sentinel)
'It is the kind of commentary that should be in all church libraries as well as in homes of persons who care to understand the Bible beyond Americanized ideologies of self-oriented experience.' (Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society)
'The 78 authors represent the best evangelical scholarship in the English-speaking world...a rich feast.' (Crux)
'The author list [of the Expositore's Bible Commentary] reads like a page from a who\rquote s who of evangelical Bible scholars. A quality product. Unquestionably wise for the serious student to plan to secure each volume. (Eternity)
'Volume 8 has succeeded very well in meeting the goals of the series...[it is] a useful addition to our pastors\rquote libraries. Its main value is in providing up-to-date linguistic, textual, archaeological and historical information on the Gospels. Although it is 'scholarly,' this commentary is not overly technical. The main emphasis of the commentary is on material explaining the text, rather than on applications for homiletics. This commentary would be helpful for pastors studying texts from the Gospels for sermons or classes and can be recommended for that purpose.' (Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary)
'A first-rate commentary, sound in scholarship, sensitive in discussion of areas of controversy, clear in expression, uncompromising in loyalty to the Word of God, and eminently usable by the \lquote expositor\rquote for whom the series is designed.' (Trinity Journal)
From the Back Cover
The Gold Medallion Award-winning Expositor's Bible Commentary is a major contribution to the study and understanding of the Scriptures. Providing pastors and Bible students with a comprehensive and scholarly tool for the exposition of the Scriptures and the teaching and proclamation of their message, this twelve-volume reference work has become a staple of seminary and college libraries and pastors' studies worldwide. The 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. The Expositor's Bible Commentary uses the New International Version for its English text, but also refers freely 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 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.

I can say that I'm very satisfied with my purchase of the 12 volumes in this set. Every portion has been quite helpful, and this is an amazingly simple and inexpensive way to assemble a good library of commentaries on the entire Bible. Obviously the commentaries are not as thorough as one may find in other series, such as the excellent (although not yet quite complete) "New International Commentary on the New Testament" or a similar series. However, for most Christians who teach or lead small groups in their churches, this set can serve as a great resource to get started with, and one that can easily be supplimented with specific volumes that treat a book of the Bible in greater depth as those books are needed. Additionally, this resource can be more useful than a larger volume in situations where one is interested in looking at a few chapters of scripture at a time, or where one just needs to understand what a verse or two might mean. Thanks to the very clear and practical verse by verse organization, it's a terrific tool to do just that.
Also, I will add that (at the time of this writing) it should be possible to buy the entire set for around $150 or less, so I would suggest shopping a bit if you plan to purchase all 12 volumes.
What I recieved: A complete commentary on every verse in the first three books of the Gospel.
This is amazing. A complete reference for Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Whether you are looking to do a word study or just looking to deeply understand what is meant in the original text this is the only book you need.
I will be purchasing the rest of the series.
