In the summer of 2014 I compiled several lists of recommended commentaries for diligent Bible students, preachers, and teachers. These lists reflect the recommendations of about a dozen scholarly books and websites.
Note: To help keep these lists current, I am adding some “new and promising” commentaries as I discover them. (Most recent additions: January 7, 2017.)
You can also download these lists (note: this file has not been updated since July 2014): Commentary Recommendations
About These Lists
Intended Audience and Purpose – Who might benefit from these recommendations?
Sources Consulted – How did I decide which books to recommend?
Abbreviations Used – What do my book descriptions mean?
