Continuing a Gold Medallion Award-winning legacy, this completely revised edition of The Expositor s Bible Commentary series puts world-class biblical scholarship in your hands. Based on the original twelve-volume set that has become a staple in college and seminary libraries and pastors studies worldwide, this new thirteen-volume edition marshals the most current evangelical scholarship and resources. Of the fifty-six contributors, thirty of them are new. Reflecting the commentary s international and cross-denominational approach, they come from the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Australia, and New Zealand, and from a broad diversity of churches, including Anglican, Baptist, Brethren, Methodist, Nazarene, Presbyterian, and Reformed. The Expositor s Bible Commentary uses the complete New International Version for its English text, but also refers freely to other translations and to the original languages. The thoroughly revised features consist of: * Comprehensive introductions * A short and precise bibliography * A detailed outline * Insightful exposition of passages and verses * Overviews of sections of Scripture to illumine the big picture * Occasional reflections to give more detail on important issues * Notes on textual questions and special problems, placed close to the text in question * Transliterations and translation of Hebrew and Greek words, enabling readers to understand even the more technical notes * A balanced and respectful approach toward marked differences of opinion"
