Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old and New Testament brings together commentary features rarely gathered together in one volume. With careful discourse analysis and interpretation of the Hebrew and Greek text, the authors trace the flow of argument in each Bible book, showing that how a biblical author says something is just as important as what they say.

The aim of the series is not to review and critique every possible interpretation of a passage, but rather to exegete each passage of Scripture succinctly in its grammatical and historical context. Each passage is interpreted in the light of its biblical setting with attention to grammatical detail, literary context, flow of biblical argument, and historical setting. These texts are written primarily for pastors and Bible teachers, but the attention to contemporary issues in the church makes it a focused resource for anyone teaching, preaching, or studying these passages.

Each volume offers a set of distinctive features, including: the main idea of the passage, its literary context, the author’s original translation and exegetical outline, its structure and literary form, an explanation of the text, and its canonical and practical significance. The diagram of each passage enables readers to grasp quickly and accurately the main idea of the text, its development, and supporting ideas; and allows them to understand how the commentator arrived at this depiction and interpretation of the passage. The commentary places a special emphasis on identifying and discussing the main thrust of each passage and showing how it contributes to the development of the whole composition. Each unit concludes with a discussion of the canonical and practical significance of the passage, synthesizing its theology and message for readers today. There are many exegetical commentaries, but none accomplish what this series has achieved.

Acts by Eckhard J. Schnabel won the 2012 Christian Book Award for best Bible Reference.

    This is easily my favorite commentary series! They are consistently the most helpful to me as I prepare messages each week. Its commitment to the authority of Scripture and clear, rigorous scholarship is just the right blend for faithful sermon preparation. I can't wait for all the books of the Bible to have an accompanying ZEC volume.

    I found this commentary set very conservative in its values and most helpful in my dissertation work.

    This indicates a commentary on the OT, but I only see 3 OT books included in this set. Does it cover more OT books? What am I missing here?
