The ESV Expository Commentary Series is in active development by Crossway. This collection includes eleven of the planned twelve series volumes.
Designed to strengthen the global Church with a widely accessible, theologically sound, and pastorally wise resource for understanding and applying the overarching storyline of the Bible, this commentary series features crisp and theologically rich exposition and application.
Editors Iain M. Duguid, James M. Hamilton, and Jay A. Sklar have gathered a team of experienced pastor-theologians to provide a new generation of pastors and other teachers of the Bible around the world with a globally minded commentary series rich in biblical theology and broadly Reformed doctrine, making the message of redemption found in all of Scripture clear and available to all.
Please note that the English Standard Version (ESV) text is not included in this product and does not automatically appear in this digital edition as it does in the print editions. Scripture texts are linked and will display the version you have set as your preferred Bible within the software. However, the Scripture version(s) available will depend on what Bible(s) you own.
The ESV Expository Commentary will be a welcome addition to the toolbox of those who are committed to expounding the inerrant and infallible Word of God. It is biblically sound, theologically faithful, and practically helpful. I look forward to using it in my own preaching and teaching ministry.

The ESV Expository Commentary is one of the best, most useful building blocks for a Bible teacher’s basic library. Readily accessible to lay readers and at the same time sufficiently learned to assist experienced expositors, this twelve-volume set seems destined to become a standard Bible reference tool for serious students of Scripture around the world.

Sheer exposition! Based on top-level scholarship which has been distilled into a form that is helpful to all students of the Bible, the easy-to-access format of the material is ideal for quick reference. This is a commentary I will refer to often in my study and preparation.
