Commentaries for Biblical Study

A commentary is a "collection of chapter-by-chapter or verse-by-verse explanations of either a portion or the whole of Scripture. Commentaries may be written by individual scholars, who are commonly assigned, based on their interests and expertise, to write on a partiular book." - David R. Stewart, The Literature of Theology

Commentaries may be published as a single volume or as a series. 

When Selecting a Commentary

Consider when selecting a commentary:

-Is it recognized by most respected scholars?

-At whom is this commentary aimed (preachers, scholars, etc)

-Does the commentary interact with the original language?

-How old is the commentary?
