The Old Testament for Everyone is designed so that biblical faith can engage the deepest hopes, deepest fears, and deepest hungers in our society. Such engagement requires precisely an interpreter like John Goldingay who brings to the task his great learning, his deep passion for faith, his informed imagination, and his attentiveness to contemporary life. This series will be an important and compelling resource for obedient thinking and joyous living.

No other commentary series comes even close.

The Christian Century

Goldingay writes for everyone as a master teacher, pastor, and friend. Scholarship comes across as common sense in his explanations and surprising translations.

Pamela Scalise, associate professor of Old Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary Northwest

These down-to-earth presentations, often illuminated by contemporary images and illustrations, probe the theological dimensions of the text with insight and offer reflections that can richly inform faith and life.

Terence E. Fretheim, Elva B. Lowell Professor of Old Testament, Luther Seminary

This series is truly for everyone who wants to grow in his or her understanding of the Old Testament.

    Genesis for Everyone, Part 1 is not showing up in my commentaries when I do a Passage Guide Search. It is listed as a commentary, but does not load with my other commentaries. Can Logos checked to see if this is tagged properly? Thanks

    I should have looked more closely. Thought this was THE ENTIRE Old Testament for Everyone Series, but guess that has not come out yet. Wish it would have been better marked as 'Much of the' Old Testament for Everyone Series or something like that. It still helps on those occasions where the OT portion of morning prayer pertains to the beginning of the OT... Can't wait to see the rest of the OT for Everyone come out...I will definitely buy.
