Lexham Geographic Commentaries

The Lexham Geographic Commentaries deliver fresh insight by drawing attention to an often overlooked component of biblical stories—their geographical setting. Geography is a central concern throughout Scripture, but the full significance of the geographical context is easily overlooked without a familiarity with the places, the relative distances, and the ancient setting. To create an innovative, award-winning commentary on the geographic and physical background of the biblical text, we partnered with noted Bible scholar and cartographer Dr. Barry J. Beitzel. This commentary will not only place you in the sandals of the ancient writers of Scripture, but it will explain the significance of the geographic details in the biblical text for your life today.

When you order this collection, all of the volumes listed below as Now Available are automatically downloaded. As forthcoming volumes are completed, they will download automatically as soon as they ship.

Praise for the Lexham Geographic Commentaries

A great number of the skills that contribute to solid biblical interpretation involve considering a text in one or another of its various contexts—linguistic, literary, historical, social, cultural, rhetorical, intertextual. But how often do we give adequate attention to the geographical and archaeological contexts of the events about which we read or the settings in which Jesus was raised, taught, acted, died, and rose again? This distinctive and clearly-focused commentary is replete with solid information about those geographical and archaeological contexts, and with connections to the Gospel texts (ranging from the secure to the suggestive, but always stimulating), that will admirably help us keep those physical contexts in view as we read, interpret, teach, and preach from the Gospels.

—David A. deSilva, Trustees’ Distinguished Professor of New Testament and Greek, Ashland Theological Seminary

What a resource! Whether you study the Bible, teach or preach it, or are planning to do a movie where you need to understand how people lived, the Lexham Geographic Commentary on Acts through Revelation is a treasure trove of information about first century life. This is up to date and full of detail that not only will inform you but fascinate you as well. Just very well done.

—Darrell Bock, Senior Research Professor of New Testament, Dallas Theological Seminary

Most New Testament professors are at best amateurs when it comes to geography and archaeology and for many of us the geographical information is inaccessible, but the Lexham Geographic Commentary on Acts through Revelation brings it all together. Just what Bible readers, pastors, and professors need! An abundance of images, excellent scholarly descriptions and narratives, and first-rate scholarship all bundled into an accessible format. I will not study any from Acts to Revelation without having this volume at my side.

—Rev. Canon Dr. Scot McKnight, Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary

    I consider my purchase of the full set of Lexham Geographic Commentary to be an investment in quality resources produced by a high quality and reputable source and I have no problem waiting for each volume to be released. I made this purchase when it was first offered and have enjoyed each volume as it released.

    As of March 2023, the Pentateuch volume is out and both volumes of the Historical Books are in copy-editing.

    Do not buy! Publication is delayed for years now. You pay, but it's like in our faith: it is down payment for things to come in (far away) future :-) Spend your money on other recources still this is really available

    Faith life keeps delaying the release of the three upcoming volumes. In March 2022, they changed the anticipated release date of the Pentateuch volume from 2021 to 2022. As of this writing, we are one month into 2023 and the Pentateuch volume has not been released (not to mention the other two unreleased volumes in this series).

    I am disappointed that the next version of this series has still not been released. I have tried emailing a few times without any reply. This series started out great and I was really looking forward to the rest but by the silence coming from Lexham over this series I think we will be waiting a long time for it to be completed if it ever is. I won't give this series a rating as I believe it should get a 5 but a 1 for keeping readers up to date. I would suggest Lexham keep their readers up to date about things like this as most readers are understanding if they know what is happening.

    It has been a long time since I bought this series, but the three volumes of the Old Testament continue to lag behind and their publication date continues to be moved forward. It doesn't seem serious to me

    I appreciate Dr. Beitzel's (a former professor of mine) filling us in about the process ahead for the remaining volumes. I am confident he has done his work. However, having learned the hard way, I will no longer pay money ahead of time for a yet to be published title from Logos/Faithlife. The risk has not proven worth the reward. Having paid in advance I have waited eleven long years for the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary to be completed and as yet only thirteen (mostly smaller) volumes have been published. So I advise you wait (and wait) until there is a shipping product.

    Barry's explanation is appreciated but I would still prefer to wait for other volumes to be released before you purchase them. You are likely to get offers/discounts in future too and should save money for it till then. The two volumes released are excellent & highly insightful and I am sure that other vols would be also top notch.
