For over one hundred years, the International Critical Commentary series has held a special place among works on the Bible. It has sought to bring together all the relevant aids to exegesis—linguistic and textual no less than archaeological, historical, literary and theological—with a level of comprehension and quality of scholarship unmatched by any other serie.
No attempt has been made to secure a uniform theological or critical approach to the biblical text: contributors have been invited for their scholarly distinction, not for their adherence to any one school of thought.
The depth of analysis found in the International Critical Commentary (ICC) Series has yet to be surpassed in any commentary collection. One of the best features of this series is the extensive amount of background information given in each volume's introduction, where all of the analysis is provided before the actual commentary begins. Each volume packs more information into the introduction than you will often find in the body of most commentaries! Also consider that with the electronic versions of each volume, you will never need to leaf through the hundreds of pages in each volume searching for the passage you are studying.
Also available as part of the International Critical Commentaries: Old Testament collection.
Praise for the Print Edition
Professor Moore has more than sustained his scholarly reputation in this work, which gives us for the first time in English a commentary on Judges not excelled, if indeed equalled, in any language of the world.
—L. W. Batten, P. E. Divinity School, Philadelphia.
Although a critical commentary, this work has its practical uses, and by its divisions, headlines, etc., it is admirably adapted to the wants of all thoughtful students of the Scriptures. Indeed, with the other books of the series, it is sure to find its way into the hands of pastors and scholarly laymen.

Like its predecessors, this volume will be warmly welcomed—whilst to those whose means of securing up-to-date information on the subject of which it treats are limited, it is simply invaluable.

About G. F. Moore
G. F. Moore George Foot Moore was one of the most important American teachers of religion. He was born in West Chester, Pennsylvania, in 1851 and died in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1931. Moore graduated Yale in 1872 and from Union Theological Seminary in 1877. His ordination to the Presbyterian ministry came in 1878, and later he became professor of Hebrew in Andover Theological Seminary in 1883. In 1902 he went to Harvard and was made professor of the history of religion just two years later.
Moore's work was of importance in four fields—the shaping of U.S. scholarship, the reshaping of U.S. concepts of religion, the study of the Hebrew Bible, and the study of tannaitic Judaism. Of his many articles in the Andover Review and Cheyne's Encyclopaedia Biblica, his Critical and Exegetical Commentary on Judges remains most valuable.
