Bible Commentaries and Studies

These recommendations have been selected by The Servants Place.

Bible commentaries and studies are not the answer to understanding the Bible. A daily practice of patient and prayerful inductive study of God’s Word is preferred before consulting Bible commentaries and other books about the Bible. However Bible commentaries and studies are very useful in providing helpful background material and insightful comments about the Scripture text.

The Bible commentaries and studies listed below are those recommended by The Servant’s Place because they are written by conservative Biblical scholars who believe the Bible is inspired (God breathed), is without error and is God’s Word for today, yesterday and tomorrow. There are many, some may venture to say too many, commentaries and studies in print on the 66 books of the recognized protestant Biblical canon. There are also many lengthy technical commentaries and studies that are best suited for the academic classroom. Some of these seem to be written by scholars in response to the writings of other scholars. Some commentaries and studies are just too brief, lacking in verse by verse comment while others are strictly devotional and do not explain the meaning of the original language of the Biblical text.

The commentaries and studies listed below are best suited for those who are preparing sermons or teaching an Adult Sunday School or Church School class or leading a Bible study group and for others wanting to have a resource that can help them better understand the Bible. These commentaries and studies are sufficient in size to provide an adequate background and introduction to the book and a verse by verse analysis of the text. They also are not cluttered with technical language which would have little appeal to most readers. Unless otherwise stated, the commentaries and studies are listed in order by preference of choice and list the author, the title and the publisher.

Overview of Commentaries and Studies

It is the opinion of The Servant’s Place that the most recent commentary published does not make it necessarily the best or the most highly recommended. Many older commentaries are still excellent resources and represent among the best available printed text on a specific Biblical Book. For example the one volume commentary by William S. Plumer on the Psalms (Banner of Truth Trust, first published 1867) may arguably be the best 19th century commentary on the Psalms, with Charles Spurgeon’s revered and popular expositions taking second place.  The exposition by Allen P. Ross ranks as the highest recommended modern commentary on the Psalms thus far in the 21st century.

It is no easy task to recommend resources to others for their consideration and expenditure of their own funds to procure the very volumes that are stated as trustworthy and useful for their study and understanding of the Scriptures. It is essential in this task to have a solid foundation and a clear statement of purpose so that those who may want to obtain at least one or more texts suggested for each Biblical book know the reasons why certain volumes were selected while others were not. It is highly likely that the majority of scholars from conservative evangelical seminaries would not in the least agree with the following recommendations and would undoubtedly have suggested more technical and academic resources.

As a starting point in the establishment of the foundation of why certain texts were selected and others were not, it is critical to set the ground rules. First, every effort has been made to recommend works by authors who are pre-millennial in their eschatological perspective.  Some recommendations stated below are from authors who hold to an amillennial viewpoint but these are noted and added to the listing of texts because they offer a solid and conservative exposition of the text which will be helpful to the student of the Bible in understanding important passages of Scripture.  Only pre-millennial authors are recommended for commentaries on those Scriptural books that are mostly prophetical in content.

Second, while understanding and appreciating the arguments from both sides of the classical vs progressive dispensational debate, the recommendations stated below are not intended to favor one side to the denigration of the other. Devoted Christians who hold to highest standard of Biblical inerrancy, sufficiency, infallibility, and state without equivocation that the Bible is “God breathed” in every word, and letter may differ on viewpoints of dispensational truth. It is of the utmost importance to acknowledge that a dispensational understanding of the Scriptures is a hermeneutic rather than a viewpoint of end times prophecy as many may so construe it.  Therefore the books recommended below are mostly authored by those who hold to a dispensational hermeneutic and except for a comment here and there, no intentional effort has been made to designate if the author holds to a classical or progressive dispensational perspective.

Third, there is no intent either stated or implied to add books to the recommendations below to impress anyone or to favor any scholar over another or to recommend any books authored by scholars who are obviously writing to a few select scholars and responding only to these other scholar’s comments or viewpoints. Too many technical and critical commentaries are written only for the benefit of the academy and not for the wider benefit of Christians.  These books are decidedly not included in the listing of recommended resources. Some of the commentary series that are to be avoided because of this tendency include the “Word” series, the “International Critical Commentary” Series and some volumes of the New International Commentary on the Old and New Testaments.  Source Critical series and liberal series will not even be mentioned in these recommendations.

Fourth, because of points one to three above, there will most assuredly be commentaries not listed that will be puzzling to many because of their absence. It must be remembered that these books listed are recommendations only and no statement is made that these recommendations are exhaustive or represent a majority view of what books are absolutely the best to include in a private or church library. New commentaries and Biblical studies are seemingly printed every month and there appears to be no end of the possibilities of type, viewpoint or technical versus devotional style to these new publications. A listing of books therefore is only relevant on the day it is distributed and may be sadly out of date in a short time period.

As indicated many commentary series have contributions by scholars who are amillennial in their eschatological viewpoints. Of this list, only the NAC series (mostly), the MacArthur series, the Moody Gospel Commentaries and the Bible Exposition Commentary (Warren Wiersbe) are assuredly pre-millennial in eschatological viewpoint. The Expositors Bible Commentary, although recommended, has a mix of end-times eschatological viewpoints.

Recommended Commentary Series:

The New American Commentary Series (NAC) , published by Broadman & Holman, is extremely well suited for those teaching an adult Sunday School or Church Bible School class and for Pastors. The authors provide a good background to each Biblical book without being too academic or technical. Based upon the NIV text, these authors give a brief verse by verse commentary which is easy to read and understand. Bibliographies of other commentaries and books are given to aid the student of the Scriptures in seeking additional resources for further study.

Another very highly recommended two volume commentary set is The Bible Knowledge Commentary, edited by John F. Walvoord and Roy B. Zuck, Victor, Cook Communications, 2 Volumes. The authors of this series have all been professors at Dallas Theological Seminary and the commentary reflects the views taught at this seminary.

A worthwhile series to purchase is the 12 volume Expositor’s Bible Commentary, edited by Frank E. Gaebelien, Zondervan Corp. This series is now updated and is not as highly recommended as the original series edited by Frank E. Gaebelien. It needs to be noted that many contributors to this series are amillennial in their eschatological perspective.

The highest recommended on-line commentary series is by Dr. Thomas Constable of Dallas Theological Seminary which is available on the Sonic Light Web Site: These notes, over 7,000 pages, cover every book of the Bible and are updated each year by Dr. Constable. These resources are offered for free download for personal use. If your budget does not allow the purchase of individual commentaries you may want to consider the purchase of the CD offered on this site which contains the complete set of notes. By purchasing the CD you will be contributing to the upkeep of Sonic Light Web Site.

A less useful soft cover commentary series for the home or church library is The Tyndale Old Testament and New Testament Series published by Inter Varsity Press and IVP Academic. This series contains several volumes by reformed and amillennial authors and are scholarly yet very readable and somewhat profitable for Biblical study. Not every volume is recommended (as is the case for most series and sets). It would be advisable to check with your Pastor before purchasing a book from this series that is not listed below.

The John MacArthur New Testament Commentary Series, published by Moody Publishers is nearing completion. This has proven to be a very readable and useful set of commentaries on the New Testament which will be of benefit to both teachers and students in a Church Sunday School or Bible School class. Pastors will also derive much useful content for the preparation of sermons. John MacArthur is a very  exceptional author and pastor with a strong belief in the pre-millennial and pre-tribulation eschatological viewpoint.

The following series are best suited for Bible students at a college level but will also be profitable for those teaching a more in-depth adult Bible Class and for Pastors. Many are written by scholars from a reformed perspective and represent the some of the best Christian scholarship available today. These volumes contain Hebrew and Greek references and are suggested for those having some knowledge of these languages. However there is a caution with these series. Not every book in these series are recommended as some of the books may be considered source critical in viewpoint. Please consult your Pastor before purchasing any volumes from the five series listed directly below.

– New International Commentary on the Old Testament, Eerdmans Publishing Co.
– New International Commentary on the New Testament, Eerdmans Publishing Co.
– Pillar New Testament Commentary, Eerdmans Publishing Co.
– Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament, Baker Academic, Division of Baker Book House
– Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament, Zondervan,

The Word Biblical Commentary Series is generally not suited for a Church library or for those teaching an adult Bible Class. It is very technical and often critical in its approach to Biblical exposition. For seminary students desiring to seek insight into the scholarly debate on the text of the Bible, it can provide some illumination. It is recommended that seminary students be very selective in choosing to purchase one or more volumes. The following are suggested for reference purposes only and not as the main commentary selected for Bible book studies: Leviticus, author: John E. Hartley. Colossians and Philemon, author: Peter T. O’Brien. 1 and 2 Thessalonians, author: F. F. Bruce. and Pastoral Epistles, author William D. Mounce. These authors are not pre-millennial and care must be taken in using these commentaries as a resource for eschatological studies.

A good background commentary set for the home or church library is the Zondervan Illustrated Bible
Backgrounds Commentary
. Edited by Clinton E. Arnold. 4 volumes. Zondervan Corp.

Devotional Commentaries:

These are usually transcripts of sermons or messages that have been modified to be suitable for a printed book. They do not have the same “read” as a commentary by a Scholar which contains a great number of footnotes or endnotes. Devotional commentaries may have a few footnotes but their main purpose is to provide the reader with a narrative that explains the Biblical text through application and not extensive interpretation and comparison with other scholarly texts which is the main component of scholarly commentaries.

Recommended Devotional Commentary Series:

  1. Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary. Sermon based Series. Publisher: Holman Reference.

Old Testament Volumes: ( Exalting Jesus in): Exodus by Tony Merida; Leviticus by Allan Mosely, Ezra and Nehemiah by James M. Hamilton; Song of Songs by Daniel L. Akin; Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi by Micah Fries,  Stephen Rummage and Robby Gallaty.

  1. Exploring:The John Phillips Commentary Series, Kregel Publications.
  2. Boice Commentary Series by James Montgomery Boice, Baker Books.
  3. Ironside Expository Commentary Series by H. A. Ironside, Kregel Academic and Professional
  4. Swindoll’s New Testament Insights Series by Charles R. Swindoll, Zondervan.
  5. Other Recommended Devotional Authors: Ray C. Stedman, Elmer Towns, Homer Kent Jr.

EZEKIEL

Commentaries:

  1. Cooper, Lamar Eugene, Sr. Ezekiel. NAC. Broadman & Holman. This is an excellent evangelical commentary. Even at 448 pages the reader wishes for more content from Cooper.
  2. Alexander, Ralph H. Ezekiel: The Expositors Bible Commentary. Volume 6. Zondervan.
  3. Feinberg, Charles L. The Prophecy of Ezekiel: The Glory of the Lord. Wipf & Stock Publishers. This is an all too brief treatment by a fine pre-millennial expositor.
  4. Block, Daniel I. The Book of Ezekiel. 2 Vols. NICOT. Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. Note: Although this commentary by Daniel Block is one of the most extensive commentaries available on the Book of Ezekiel, it is not ranked higher due to Block’s amillennial eschatological leanings. However, a discerning reader will find much profit from this two volume set and it is a worthwhile purchase for the pastor’s or Bible teacher’s library. It is not recommended for a general audience.
