  • Suggests additional readings for further study of the Old Testament
  • Evaluates a range of commentaries
This little book is an excellent aid for the study of the Old Testament. It is more than a bibliography; it is an annotated listing of many of the important resources available in English… A 'must' for any serious student of the Bible.

A bibliograpahic tool worth consulting.

    Not as strong or thorough as the NT counterpart. Still could be a handy reference, but it's in want of a more thorough update from the last edition. More details here: http://abramkj.com/2014/01/21/what-are-the-best-old-testament-commentaries-to-get/

    I have the 3rd edition of this book. The edition I have provides a brief comment and an evaluation of single all-in-one commentaries, commentary sets and individual books for those who want to purchase the best commentary for their purposes without buying a complete set. This will be a valuable update taking into account more recently published works.

    This book is from 2013 but seems very brief. The Logos blog says there's a 10% sale on the pre-pub price right now, so I guess $14.95 which it says on the product-page right now is the sale price.
