Jumpstart Your Research

The Lexham Research Commentary is your starting point for study and research. Each volume gives you the tools you need to find answers quickly. This commentary is designed to do the time-consuming work of searching through commentaries, journal articles, and monographs to find the information you need, saving you valuable time by curating all of the best literature in one place—it’s a commentary on the commentaries. The annotated notes on the various viewpoints and interpretive options within the text allow you to quickly synthesize a broad range of views on a particular passage. Dense, jargon-filled research is distilled into easy-to-understand comments. As you critically study the text, the contextual notes help you place the passage within the narrow context of the biblical book and the broader context of the entire canon.

 

The Lexham Research Commentaries were formerly known as the Lexham Bible Guides.

A Smart Way to Study the Bible

  • Find things fast. There’s no need to locate, read, and notate dozens of reference materials. Everything is in one spot. It’s concise enough to digest, but broad enough so you know everything’s covered.
  • See connections. The overview format leads you to research topics you may have never read about or heard of. This snapshot view of the text provides an ideal starting point for sermon preparation or academic research.
  • Gain perspective. You’ll get an overview of all the relevant issues related to a particular biblical passage, from exegetical topics like structure and genre, to interpretive issues presented by commentators. You’ll also find links to lexicons and commentaries for word studies in Logos, plus lots of links to related literature for further study. Everything is organized and summarized in one spot—only a click away.
  • Designed digital-first. These commentaries are written from the ground up to take full advantage of Logos’ platform. The interconnectivity of the Lexham Research Commentaries within the Logos library provides you with relevant, curated content at a click. There’s no need to flip through pages, pore over commentaries, or search through dictionaries. You get access to the best content available—instantly.

    While I recognize the Lexham Research Commentaries series is not the same as the Evangelical Exegetical Series (EEC), as Matt Hamrick mentions in his review on 8/2/2023, I might note that a careful review of the 16 volumes not yet published as of 8/18/2023 (see list of unpublished volumes details in this set below) produces the following observations: only one author of one unpublished volume is identified as "Contracted with Faithlife" as a contributing editor for Logos Mobile Education, eight authors of eleven unpublished volumes are faculty/missionaries employed by other entities, one author of two unpublished volumes has no current job title listed, and two volumes have no assigned authors. Why is this important? Because unpublished volumes written by authors employed by other entities (while possibly under contract with Lexham Press) are first committed to their current employers and may or may not produce their volumes in a timely manner (similar to the situation with EEC production). Obviously, the two volumes in Revelation that have no product page or apparently no author assigned to them will take a bit to produce since they are not yet even assigned or started. HENCE, again, I suggest purchasers ONLY PURCHASE PUBLISHED EDITIONS OUTRIGHT and purchase the remaining unpublished editions as PRE-PUB EDITIONS to take advantage of the discount while not being billed for the unpublished volumes until there is proof of publication. Of course, everyone may do as they choose; I'm simply stating this because of the lessons learned with the EEC which has been in production since 2009 and has only had approximately 25% of its content produced. Many paid in advance for the entire set and nearly 15 years later are still missing approximately 75% of the content they purchased in good faith. CAVEAT EMPTOR - Let the buyer beware.

    This is not the EEC. Most all of these volumes are produced by members of the Faithlife team in Faithlife headquarters. The authors are available so this set will be finished. The Evangelical Exegetical Commentary has to be outsourced to find authors. The two products are apples and oranges and it's not fair to bash Faithlife or Lexham Press for the LRC when our issue is with the EEC.

    Excellent series so far. A much needed asset to my library. However, only buy the published set. I went ahead and paid for the whole thing, which maybe I'll save money in the long run, but there is not set date and who knows if it'll ever get finished. Hopefully it will. If it does I will update and add Stars to my review

    Consider the Lexham Research Commentaries: Paul's Letters Collection (https://www.logos.com/product/27493/lexham-research-commentaries-pauls-letters-collection) and you'll get 13 of the 17 published editions. The good news is all of these editions are published so you are getting exactly what you pay for. No "pay now and wait forever" plan like many of us have experienced with the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary set (only 11--if you count the four volumes that are only half published as two "complete" volumes--of the 44 volumes have been published in over FOURTEEN YEARS). On September 9, 2010, John Dyer wrote the following of the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (EEC) set: "In 2009, Logos, the company that makes one of the dominant Bible software packages, resurrected the [EEC] project and decided to make it 100% digital with print as a byproduct (they will offer paperback editions, but only in an abridged format)." So, folks, it's been since 2009 that some have waited on the 44 volume set of the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary set. When some have asked for refunds for unpublished editions, their requests have been either denied or ignored. Now, perhaps you can understand the hesitancy in purchasing, in full, a commentary set that is only 51.5% available now--you are financing the remaining 49.5% of the work up-front with no commitment to a timeline, or for that matter, fulfillment at all. Let the buyer beware of purchasing from Faithlife/Logos/Lexham Press that are not yet published and available for immediate download; by their practice, it is unclear whether or not they will fulfill on their commitment to publish and make available future "publications."

    Only 17 of these 33 volumes are available today; the remaining 16 volumes remain to be written and published. I would strongly suggest you only buy published editions or, at the very least, a bundle of the 20-vol bundle where only 3 of the volumes are unpublished. Michael Billington and Charles Savelle put it best: Michael: "Sad to say, but after paying in full and being burned by the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (only 13 out of 44 volumes released) and still waiting years after the initial sales pitch, I will never again pay in full for a series up front and wait for the future volumes to be released years later, or perhaps never. I'd rather wait and purchase a volume as needed for full price than have my funds tied up for years for volumes that may never be released. I would commit to purchase thjs set as a pre-pub, but not under this "pay now and wait forever" plan." Charles: "I was looking at adding this but wondered even with the March Matchups sale why the price was so high. Then I noticed that it includes volumes not yet available. About 10 years ago I paid $757 for Logos' EEC series. As of today, only 13 of the 44 volumes are available. At this rate it will be at least another 20 years before I can access volumes that I have already paid for! Caveat emptor." Same goes for me. I'd be willing to consider purchase under a PRE-PUB condition where I am billed when the product is released but I will not purchase another set in advance of nearly half of the publications being written and published. LOGOS, please re-consider your offering and make these unpublished books available via PRE-PUB for 30% - 40% off retail as you so often do with pre-publications.

    I own all of the commentaries that have been released, and some that have not yet been released. What puzzles me is that in reviewing the published volumes, the publication dates are from 2012 to 2017. It would seem that Lexham has not released a new volume in 5 years. So why are they selling unreleased volumes when they are not releasing new volumes? I could see having them available as preorders, allowing someone to order them and not pay until it ships; but I already own volumes I have paid for that haven't been released, and they are still selling more unreleased volumes.

    While Lexham publishes excellent materials, I have significant money tied up in both the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary and Lexham Research Commentary Series (34 volumes paid for and pending for some time). I did not realize my money would be tied up for years to come when I made my purchases. I urge caution when buying Lexham products ahead of the publication date.
