Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (EEC) (44 vols.)
This image is for illustration only. The product is a download.

Overview

The Evangelical Exegetical Commentary is a brand new, 44-volume commentary series which incorporates the latest critical biblical scholarship and is written from a distinctly evangelical perspective. Published by Lexham Press, the EEC is the next standard commentary on the entire Bible for evangelicals. Like the Word Biblical Commentary and the Baker Exegetical Commentary, the EEC is written by a team of leading biblical scholars. Contributors to the EEC include Eugene Merril, Edward Glenny, Michael Stallard, Stanley E. Porter, John Oswalt, William Barrick, Eugene Carpenter, Richard Averbeck, R. Dennis Cole, H. Wayne House, and many others. Learn more at the main Evangelical Exegetical Commentary page.

The publication of the EEC by Lexham Press marks the first time a major Bible commentary series has been published in digital form before its print counterpart—and the first time it has been published with a digital format in mind.

Originally intended to be a print edition, the series was canceled. In a world where the future of print is uncertain—where the market share for print books erodes away a little further each year as new digital formats become available—it did not make financial sense for the publisher to risk such a massive investment in a multi-year print project. Working with series editor H. Wayne House, Lexham Press revived the project, agreeing to publish an electronic version of the commentary with an accelerated publication timetable. The entire 44-volume set will be available in 2019—an unprecedented publication timetable for a commentary of this magnitude.

When you order the EEC, all of the volumes listed below as Now Available are automatically downloaded. As the series grows and new volumes are released, the remaining commentaries will download automatically as soon as they ship.

Now Available

Exodus

  • Author: Eugene Carpenter
  • Editor: H. Wayne House
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2012

In the book of Exodus, the promises to the patriarchs begin to reach fulfillment: Yahweh takes a people for Himself and dwells among them as their God. In this volume, Eugene Carpenter interacts with the most current scholarship and analyzes the Hebrew text to trace this important theme through Exodus. Throughout his commentary, Carpenter gives readers his own translation, demonstrates how the theology of Exodus interacts with the rest of the Bible, and offers suggestions for applying Exodus to the Church.

Eugene Carpenter (1943–2012) was Professor of Old Testament, Hebrew, and Biblical Theology at Bethel College. Carpenter served as a pastor and teacher in a variety of church and ministry settings.

Ezra & Nehemiah

  • Author: Israel Loken
  • Editor: H. Wayne House
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2011

By analyzing Ezra’s and Nehemiah’s elements of narrative and the historical backgrounds, Israel Loken explains how and why God’s people rebuilt Jerusalem and changed their way of worship. Loken examines the views of other scholars before drawing persuasive conclusions about what convinced God’s people to follow Him, once again, with their entire beings. Loken then tells us what the characters and events in Ezra and Nehemiah teach us about worship, life, and God. This rare combination makes this contribution both scholastic and applicable.

Israel Loken is Chair of the Bible and Theology Departments at the College of Biblical Studies in Houston, Texas. He regularly leads tours to Israel.

Esther

  • Author: Anthony J. Tomasino
  • Editor: H. Wayne House
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2013

The story is a familiar one, made popular by Sunday School teachers, novels, and movies: her people threatened with extinction, Queen Esther must summon the courage to approach the Persian King Xerxes in order to save the Jews. But what is the real message of Esther? In this commentary, Anthony Tomasino closely examines the Hebrew text to explore the motifs of feasting, sovereignty, assertiveness, and reversal in the book of Esther. He also explores its connection with the celebration of Purim, the theme of the invincibility of the Jews, and the conspicuous absence of any mention of God.

Anthony J. Tomasino is Director of the Biblical Studies Program and Associate Professor of Bible, Old Testament and Hebrew at Bethel College. He is the author of Written Upon the Heart: The Ten Commandments for Today’s Christian and Judaism before Jesus: The Events and Ideas that Shaped the New Testament World.

Song of Songs

  • Author: A. Boyd Luter
  • Editor: H. Wayne House
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2013

The biblical book that deals most extensively with romantic and sexual wisdom is the Song of Songs. In this commentary, A. Boyd Luter argues that the Song contains an inverted parallel structure that divides it into seven sections, taking a young couple from their initial longings and expressions of affection for each other, to their wedding day, and on to the various struggles that threaten to derail their love. For each section, Luter comments on the text and background of the Song and provides helpful suggestions for how it might be preached and applied today.

A. Boyd Luter is Adjunct Online Professor of New Testament at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. He has authored several books, including Looking Back, Moving On, God behind the Seen: Expositions of the Book of Ruth and Esther, and Inspired Preaching: A Survey of Preaching in the New Testament. Luter has written numerous articles and book reviews for various publications, including Bibliotheca Sacra, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, Faith and Mission, Journal of Pastoral Practice, and Criswell Theological Review.

Philemon

  • Author: Seth M. Ehorn
  • Editor: H. Wayne House
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2011

In this volume, Seth M. Ehorn takes the uncommon stance that slavery is not the central issue of Philemon; instead, God’s providential work is. According to Ehorn, this is seen in the themes that Paul addresses throughout his letter: reconciliation, forgiveness, love, and faithfulness—attributes that Christ exhibited. Ehorn adopts the view that Paul wrote to his friend, Philemon, on behalf of Onesimus, Philemon’s runaway slave. As a “ friend of the master,” Paul reminded Philemon of his Christian character, suggesting that he should continue to act accordingly. By using and interacting with various interpretive approaches (such as discourse, rhetorical, epistolary, and sociological), Ehorn shows how Paul embodied Christ’s actions and how we can do the same.

Seth M. Ehorn is currently a doctoral candidate studying New Testament Language, Literature, and Theology at the University of Edinburgh, New College. Prior to New College, he completed an M.A. in Biblical Exegesis at Wheaton College Graduate School in Illinois where he was awarded the Merrill C. Tenney Award for New Testament studies. He has contributed several articles to the Baker Illustrated Bible Dictionary (forthcoming) and written many book reviews in academic journals.

James

  • Author: William Varner
  • Editor: H. Wayne House
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: September 1, 2012

Expanding on his previous work on James, William Varner offers fresh exegetical and practical insight into one of the earliest writings of the New Testament. With a thorough introduction, Varner lays a firm foundation for his commentary on the text of James. Each section of the commentary includes an introduction to the pericope, the Greek text with textual notes, Varner’s own translation of the Greek, the commentary proper, a note on the Biblical theology of the passages, and a section offering practical points of application and devotional notes. The end of each pericope also offers the reader a bibliography for further study.

Will Varner has provided a highly valuable and well-needed contribution to the exposition of the book of James in his new commentary on James for the Evangelical Commentary series. His reasoning is clear, cogent and very welcome to the church's great heritage in this precious epistle.

—F. David Farnell, professor of New Testament, The Master’s Seminary

Varner’s commentary is so complete one can get by with this commentary alone! It sketches the significance of the man James, sketches the exegetical options, sorts out primary evidence, examines each text in light of larger themes in biblical theology, draws even-handed and compelling conclusions, and so puts on the plate all we need to read, interpret, and live the message of James.

—Scot McKnight, professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary

In this installment of a first-ever detailed exegetical commentary written first for digital publication, William Varner sets a high standard with his comments on James under numerous headings. After a thorough introduction highlighting the importance of James, the half-brother of Jesus, as the leader of the early Christian church in Jerusalem, the commentary expounds short sections of text with introductions, translations, textual-critical notes, biblical theology, devotional insights and potential sermon points often nicely alliterated, all sandwiched around detailed clause-by-clause explanation of the text. Particularly helpful are the grammatical categorizations, fully conversant with verbal aspect theory and discourse analysis, and the voluminous knowledge of and interaction with other scholars. Time and again Varner helps the reader sift through complex exegetical conundra clearly, always coming to plausible and usually to persuasive conclusions. A must for any serious scholar, preacher or teacher of this often neglected epistle!

Craig L. Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary

Will Varner's James is marked by all the characteristics that make for an excellent commentary on Scripture: careful attention to the text, wide-ranging research, comparison with other ancient texts, and concern for theological and practical application.

Douglas Moo, Wessner Chair of Biblical Studies, Wheaton College. Chair, Committee on Bible Translation

While the homily we know as James has not been neglected in recent NT scholarship, there is always room for another detailed interaction with this document written to Jewish Christians, not least because it may well be the earliest NT document we have. William Varner presents us with an up-to-date, detailed, helpful analysis of James which interacts with a wide range of scholarship, ancient and current, and gives us a new reason to affirm once again that Luther, and James' other cultured detractors, were wrong to neglect, parody, or pit James over against Paul.

Dr. Ben Witherington, III, Amos Professor of NT for Doctoral Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary

I’m no Jacobean expert, but Varner has produced a fine commentary, with a very readable introduction and sober comments throughout. He seems very much on board with Hengel and Bauckham in attributing a significant role to James in the early church. Each section has an introduction, outline, original text, textual notes, ESV translation, commentary, biblical theology comments, and a devotional/application section. A fine commentary to add to your Logos collection!

Dr. Michael Bird, Lecturer in Theology and New Testament, Crossway College, Brisbane, Australia

William Varner is Professor of Bible and Greek at The Master’s College, where he also serves as the director of The Master’s College semester in Israel.

1, 2, & 3 John

  • Author: Gary Derickson
  • Editor: H. Wayne House
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2012

In this volume, Gary Derickson explores how John communicates his pastoral concerns in his three epistles. Interacting with the most recent scholarship, Derickson focuses on John’s message and concerns rather than following the common theory of a Johannine school and secessionist polemic. He distinguishes pastoral and polemical elements within John’s message and recognizes John’s own assessment of his readers’ faith. By encouraging his readers to express God’s love through being actively involved in each other’s lives, John shows that he is not concerned with how we possess eternal life but with how we express it as we relate to God.

Gary Derickson is Ministry Division Chair at Corban University. He has published articles in Bibliotheca Sacra, ETS Studies Series, The Master’s Seminary Journal, and The Journal of the Grace Evangelical Society. He contributed to The Nelson’s Complete Study Bible and is co-author of The Disciplemaker: What Matters Most to Jesus.
