The 9-volume Cornerstone Biblical Commentary Series aims at helping teachers, pastors, students, and laypersons understand every thought contained in the Bible. The commentary focuses on the words of Scripture, on the theological truths of Scripture, and on the original language texts and English translations of the Bible. Using the New Living Translation, nearly 100 scholars from various church backgrounds and several countries contributed to this massive commentary, united by their shared belief that the Bible is God’s inspired word and their desire to make God’s word clear and accessible to his people.
The Cornerstone Biblical Commentary Series is structured in a way that gets at the meaning of Scripture, passage by passage. Each book of the Bible is prefaced by a substantial introduction that offers historical background important for understanding. Then readers are taken through the Bible text, passage by passage, starting with the text of the New Living Translation. This is followed by a section of notes on the Greek and Hebrew behind the English translation of the New Living Translation. This section also interacts with scholars on important interpretive issues, and points readers to significant textual and contextual matters. The commentary on the passage presents a lucid interpretation, giving special attention to context and major theological themes.
With the Logos edition of the Cornerstone Biblical Commentary Series, you can read the commentary on the text alongside the New Living Translation, as well as the Greek and Hebrew texts in your digital library!

Praise for the Print Edition
An enormously helpful series for the layperson and pastor alike because it centers on the theological message of each book and ties it directly to the text. This approach has been needed for some time and will be an invaluable supplement to other commentary series.
A treasure house of insight into the biblical text. Written by some of the best scholars working today, it is an essential tool for pastors, students, church leaders, and lay people who want to understand the text and know how it relates to our lives today. Like the New Living Translation text it uses as its base, this commentary series is extremely readable.
