—Craig S. Keener, Professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary
The Expositor's Bible Commentary has been a core resource for decades with good reason: it is concise, clear, and focused on giving the key points of a book's message. Now with this revised edition, one can continue to use this fine resource and know the discussion is up to date, utilizing all the strengths of the original.
—Darrell L. Bock, Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
Every student, teacher, and pastor needs a foundational set of commentaries that covers the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. The Expositor’s Bible Commentary (13 volumes) is that set. Written from an evangelical point of view and newly revised by leading evangelical scholars, the Expositor’s Bible Commentary series provides students, teachers, and pastors with a comprehensive tool for studying and explaining the Scriptures. I have used the Expositor's Bible Commentary over the years and look forward to using this newly revised edition for many years to come.
—Mark Futato, Robert L. Maclellan Professor of Old Testament and Academic Dean, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, FL
The revised edition of the Expositor's Bible Commentary offers students of the Scriptures quick and reliable access to the entire Bible in thirteen reader-friendly volumes. Written by the foremost evangelical scholars of our time, the commentaries on individual books seek to answer the questions that serious readers ask when they read the Bible. If there is one set of commentaries that all pastors and teachers should have, this is it.
—Daniel I. Block, Gunther H. Knoedler Professor of Old Testament, Wheaton College
The Expositor's Bible Commentary is a superb tool to help the Christian who wants to better understand God's Word. As a preacher, I turn to it again and again. From the Psalms to the Gospel of Matthew, some of the best commentaries are to be found in this series. I'm thankful for these scholars and for their work.
—Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC
As a seminary student two of my professors were writing (and wrote) two of the volumes in The Expositor's Bible Commentary, and I have used this commentary my entire career. I am delighted at the updates and revisions and know that this series continues to set the standard for solid, evangelical, expository explanations of God's Word—every pastor needs this series on the shelf.
—Scot McKnight, Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary
The Expositor’s Bible Commentary—Revised is one of my favorite ‘go-to’ Bible study and sermon prep resources. It’s ‘accessible scholarship.’ When I know a passage well it always takes me deeper. When I don’t know a text so well, I can count on it to give me a clear overview and a great foundation. That’s why it’s always one of the key resources I recommend every Bible teacher and church planter add to his library. With its combination of proven and updated scholarship it will serve you and those you teach well.
—Larry Osborne, Pastor, North Coast Church, Vista, CA
The greatest need for the church is excellent commentaries that can be used by pastors and Bible teachers. The Expositors Bible series admirably filled this need for decades, and now it is even better and a critical contribution for enabling the church to be Bible-centered and more biblically literate. I recommend this highly for every Christian.
—Grant Osborne, Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
When the Expositor's Bible Commentary first appeared in the 1970s and 1980s, there were far fewer evangelical commentary series available than there are today, and many of the contributions to that first edition took their place among the best available. Some, inevitably, were weaker than others, but these have almost all now been replaced and the entire series strengthened and updated. For concise commentary, the EBC once again takes its place as among the best volumes available.
