Bible Commentaries

Sometimes it can be hard to understand what a particular Bible passage is about. This is where a good commentary can be invaluable. Here are some useful ones. But don't take what they say at face value—always check them against what the King of Books says. Thanks again to Luke Jenner for the initial list.

Have you seen the new electronic edition of the Welwyn Commentary Series (49 Vols.) from Logos Bible Software? I thought you might be interested.

Thanks ... I wonder how long it will be before real books (on paper) are collectors' items!
