The Geeky Calvinist5 Stars Out Of 5A Needed 2nd Volume of GenesisFebruary 20, 2018The Geeky CalvinistQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Word Bible Commentary (WBC), is an extreamly scholarly and many time critical Biblical commentary, yet it is one that can be hard to use, thankfully not all volumes are like that. This series is extremely useful in writing academic papers, in sermon preparation, and in Sunday school preparation.
A few years ago the word bible commentary switch Publishers again, and came under the ownership of Zondervan Publications. Under their leadership this series has seen a rejuvenation of sorts. While the format remains unchanged (providing a phenomenal bibliography, translation, notes on translation and setting, followed by comments and explanation), the binding of the book has changed as well as the addition of revised versions of previously released commentaries.
While the WBC is world renowned for its high academic pursuit of Gods Word, I was pleasantly surprised at its accessibility to the pastor and not just the academically-minded Bible scholar. In the book that I have the privilege of viewing is a re-issuing of the 2nd volume of this series containing Genesis 16-50, by Gordon J. Wenham which previously released under a previous publisher, but has a re-release under Zondervans leadership.
While reading an assortment of passages in the book of Genesis, I was saddened to see a lack of commentary about each verse with regard to application and contextualisation. Yet on the other hand comments about the Biblical Hebrew language as well as syntax of each verse are indispensable information that is sorely lacking in almost every modern commentary.
While knowledge of the Biblical Hebrew language is handy when utilizing this commentary, it is not a necessary requirement for some utilization. With that said having a deep knowledge of the Biblical Hebrew will greatly enhance a readers ability to use this commentary. I highly recommend this commentary to pastors and scholars due to its thorough academic approach combined with its accessibility to academia and the pastorate.
This book was provided to me free of charge from Zondervan Academic Publishers in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.
