When you want to dig more deeply into the meaning of God's Word, a good expository Bible commentary is ideal. You want more than a simple, one-volume commentary that just scratches the surface.

Based on the critically acclaimed Expositor's Bible Commentary used by pastors, students, and scholars across the world, this two-volume abridged edition offers you the full, penetrating, verse-by-verse commentary of the 12-volume series while leaving out needless technical details. Marshalling the knowledge of fifty-two top biblical scholars, it brings tremendous insight to your Bible studies. Covering the Old and New Testaments in separate volumes, this commentary features: * Verse-by-verse exposition of the entire Bible * 250 in-text charts, maps, tables, and pictures * Goodrick/Kohlenberger numbers for cross-referencing the Zondervan NIV Exhaustive Concordance and other G/K-numbered resources

Great Tool For The Bible Student 1 Aug 2009
By Michael Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"The Expositor's Bible Commentary" Abridged Edition takes the 12-volume original Old Testament and New Testament set and condenses the information into 2 volumes (1 Old Testament and 1 New Testament set).

For several years I was interested in the Expositor's Bible Commentary set but do not do so for 2 main reasons:

1. The original 12-volume set takes up too much room in my office.
2. Did not want to purchase the cd because I already spend enough time behind a computer!

I serve as an adjunct faculty at a local community college and alternate between teaching either an Introduction to Old Testament or Introduction to New Testament class each semester. Since I also have a full-time sales position and travel, carrying around a heavy commentary set or book was out of the question.

This commentary set perfectly meets those needs. The approach is scholarly and leaves out the numerous footnotes and other notes without compromising the seemingly sound commentary on Bible verses.

Highly recommended. Whether a pastor, teacher, or Bible student, this commentary set needs to be a part of your library!

Solid basic resource 7 Dec 2011
By N. Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I got this Commentary set based on the recommendation of the pastor who was teaching a class I was in. I've never done bible research before so this was a good way to get my feet wet. It is not too deep for a beginner like myself, but it gives enough detail and background to broaden your perspective and help you think critically about how you interpret the bible - a very important thing! i'd say for the average person like myself it's a good, handy biblical resource. Seems reliable, nothing I've read in it so far has set off any red flags (in terms of being too subjective). My mentality is that you can't be too careful in what you allow to influence your thinking - especially when it comes to scripture! I think I'll get good use out of this set, I'd recommend it.

Good For A Busy Pastor 25 Aug 2009
By Pawpaw E - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I previously owned the 12 volume set, but I really like the 2 volume abridged set better. I usually consult multiple commentaries and with the 2 volume set I can get the information that I need and move on much quicker.
A great commentary at the right price 29 Dec 2013
By Richard Brown II - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Expositor's Bible Commentary is a wonderful Bible commentary. This rendition is a two-volume set that covers the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible) and New Testament in two distinct books.

Pros: This commentary set gives you the historical, cultural, linguistic, archaeological, and interpretive information you'd expect from this series but in an abridged format. For those who cannot afford the full set or who do not have the room the extra books this is a great investment that you will enjoy.

Cons: None that I've found thus far.

Overall: What you are getting is a great commentary that will certainly enrich your reading and understanding of the Bible. Enjoy!
