The Eerdmans Critical Commentary Series offers the best of contemporary Old and New Testament scholarship, seeking to give modern readers clear insight into the biblical text, including its background, its interpretation, and its application. Under the editorial leadership of David Noel Freedman and Astrid B. Beck, the contributors to the ECC series are among the foremost authorities in biblical scholarship worldwide. They represent a broad range of backgrounds and are motivated to remain sensitive to the original meaning of the text and to bring alive its relevance for today. Each volume includes the author’s own translation, critical notes, and commentary on literary, historical, cultural, and theological aspects of the text.
This series was designed to be accessible to serious general readers and scholars alike. These commentaries reflect the contributions of recent textual, philological, literary, historical, and archaeological inquiry, benefiting as well from newer methodological approaches. The ECC volumes are considered “critical” in that they concentrate on a detailed, systematic explanation of the biblical text. Although exposition is based on the original and cognate languages, English translations provide complete access to the discussion and interpretation of these primary sources.
