Entries are cross-referenced to the companionHarperCollins Bible Dictionary. The commentary covers all of the Hebrew Bible, as well as the books of the Apocrypha and those of the New Tesatament and thus addresses the biblical canons of Judiasm, Cathol- icism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Protestantism.

    This is one of my most consulted commentaries. I highly recommend it. It is NOT of a standard evangelical slant. The commentators step back from their personal theological convictions and just dig into the text and the minds of the original authors - and what their preaching meant to their contemporaries. Obviously, with so many writers, there are strengths and weaknesses. Much more strength.

    If I read some sermon or paper that takes a theological stand on something and the preacher/writer cites a passage from the Bible, I can consult this commentary and quite often learn if the preacher is using the passage correctly or if the writer meant something completely different.

    Very highly recommended.

    The companion dictionary is also a recommended investment.

    This IS a useful commentary except buyers should be forewarned that virtually all commentaries are written from the rationalistic "higher critical" mind-set. That is, denial of Mosaic authorship of the Torah, and that all prophecies in scripture were written "after the fact".
