    Glynn's method is to collect recommendations from reputable evangelical sources and to consolidate them into categorized lists. For each book of the Bible, Glynn distinguishes between technical, semi-technical and expositional commentaries. He usually adds a section for monographs dealing with special subjects on each Biblical book. He also has a system of noting the theological perspective of each author (such as evangelical, evangelical/critical, conservative/moderate, and liberal/critical).Along with listing commentaries, Glynn covers reference works, introductory works, theological works, church history works, language works and even Bible software (such as Logos, Accordance, and BibleWorks). Another feature of this volume worth mentioning is the footnotes regarding forthcoming volumes. Of course, these notes will quickly become obsolete, but it is a very helpful service that deserves being perpetuated.Really, this entire project is worth being continued. The concept of cataloging the most recommended books is extremely helpful to students and teachers alike. The plan of this Survey is great and highly useful for a fairly broad range of students. It is a project that requires constant updating and expansion. I truly hope that Kregel will find someone (or a team) able to take up this project and carry it on through many more editions.

    The range of topics Glynn covers is impressive. It is is an outstanding book from the Evangelical perspective. One of its strengths is that Glynn covers all views points, from Evangelical, Conservative, Moderate and Critical.The other feature I have found nowhere else is his list of 'Forthcoming' books found in the foot notes. This helps me to plan what and when to buy.

    I have recently purchased (this) Glynn's mini compendium of all better and best, higher and lower tiers of theological writings and references and in the process, even picked up a better knowledge of some of these areas. An excellent shining resource help for digging through common rhetoric to finding deeper scholarly works. To the student searching for the highest possible quality and accessibility (and for beginning student in mind)in a commentary/reference guide, this is on the grand scale.

Author/Artist Review

Author: John Glynn
Located in: Stoughton, MA
Submitted: October 06, 2006

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I grew up Catholic in Norwell, MA and was saved in an alcohol/drug detox in Norfolk MA on Feb 22 1986. I went thru Teen Challenge, then went to Moody Bible Institute and Dallas Seminary. I also got a degree in Creative Writing from Emerson College, Boston in 1977.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I started out in seminary putting out a photocopied (and handwritten I might add!) list for our bookstore. Over the next six years I self- published and distributed seven booklets. God saw fit to have a regular publisher show interest in 2003.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  This new edition is 120 pages longer. In addition to covering all new titles from 2004-2006, there are many more forthcoming commentaries listed plus two new chapters on exegetical software. Also,the Ultimate Commentary Collection is split between exegetical and expositional selections (two sections)

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I read history (esp. American) for relaxation. I also listen to all kinds of music, especially alternative folk (Patty Griffin, Annie Lennox, Jeff Buckley) classic rock (CSNY, Jeff Beck, old Fleetwood Mac [Peter Green]) Celtic (Van Morrison, Capercaillie, Damien Rice, Maura O'Connell) and Christian (Charlie Peacock, CeCe Winans, Cathedral Quartet).

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I work as a freelance academic proofreader for such companies as Broadman, Zondervan, Hendrickson, Kregel, etc. Recently I have begun to publish essays and reviews in theological journals in addition to updating my commentary survey. Presently I am reviewing books by outsiders (Sheler, Mann, El-Faizy, Balmer, Sandler) looking inside evangelical America.
